Valve Facings for Player Pianos

Literally dozens of different sizes of valve facings have been utilized in the manufacturing of player pianos since they first were introduced over 120 years ago. The items listed in the pages below were once offered by Player Piano Co., Wichita, KS when they were still in business. Sadly, the company's assets were purchased by an individual who knows virtually nothing about player pianos, and the people he hired to sell those assets have never been involved in the restoration of player pianos. As a result, almost none (if any) of the items in the listing are currently available, and most rebuilders are making their own parts.

These parts are not sold at Player-Care.com.

Since "Player-Care" is an internet business, I prefer that we correspond via E-Mail (click here to fill out the 'Request Form'). However, if I'm not in the middle of some other activity, you can reach me at 732-840-8787. But please understand that during the hours from 8AM-5PM EST (Mon-Sat), I'm generally quite busy. So, I probably won't answer the phone. If you get the answering machine, please leave a detailed message stating the reason for your call. Also, repeat your name and phone number clearly and distinctly. By necessity, I prioritize everything in my life. And, if you call and just leave your name and number, and ask me to call you back, it might be a day or two before I return your call. Why? Because I don't know why you want me to call and I might not be prepared to assist you in an effective and efficient manner. If you leave me an E-Mail address (which I prefer), spell it out phonetically. The more you do to help me, the more I can help you in return. Don't rush. You have four minutes to record your message.
