CLASSIC
(Just getting started on this one)

Classic Player Pianos were made in Seneca, PA during the 1980's and 1990's. The company originally installed player mechanisms that were, for all intents and purposes, identical to those found in all modern Aeolian player pianos (made from the 1960's through 1985). In the late 1980's, Classic started installing the Universal-style player system, but soon switched to a re-engineered system of their own design. The new system incorporated the best features of the Universal system along with major changes in the electronics and a far better synthetic pouch made of Tuftane instead of the 'then failing' Preflex pouches found in the Universal players.

Classic later received contracts from Wurlitzer and Baldwin to produce player pianos bearing those names. The Baldwin players of that era were simply called Baldwin players. The Wurlitzer players were sold under the tradename "Casino".

The Classic Service Manual covers modern player pianos with the names "Old World", "Cameo", "Heritage", "Baldwin", "Casino", "Victorian", "Limited", and "Casablanca".
