It is with genuine pleasure that I express my warm appreciation of the Knabe piano, which is a constant source of inspiration, delight and satisfaction. It possesses all the desired piano virtues—and unsurpassed quality of richness, depth, brilliancy and sonority of tone. Not only as a solo instrument is the Knabe perfect, but as an accompanient for the voice—a singer is peculiarly grateful for the lovely singing quality which so adequately supports the voice. I heartily recommend the Knabe to the pianist—the singer—the listener. Cordially yours, grace wood jess We extend you a cordial invitation to hear this marvelous instrument in upright and grand form Reed-French piano manufacturing Co. 435 WASHINGTON STREET PACIFIC STATY. & PRINTING CO.
