Cable Co. Euphona

This is a two-tier stack with pneumatics facing front, pulling down levers across the top of the stack which pivot before passing between the metal tubes leading to the rubber tubing from spool box. The valve is a white circle of Celluloid attached to wooden fluted valve stem with a brad swabbed with shellac. The valve seats upon an 'ant hill' type mound topped with a leather washer. Some actions installed in the Euphona were without levers and pneumatics engage directly with abstract on piano action.

The Cable Co. was very proud of their product, and their trademark was cast into the harps of all their pianos, regardless of what name appeared on the fallboard: Cable, Carola Inner Player, Conover, Euphona, Kingsbury, Tonarch, or Wellington. Since Cable Co. player actions were not used outside this family of pianos, positive identification can be made. If the below trademark does' not appear on the piano harp, it is not a Cable Co. player action. There were many other "Cables" that made pianos, but without any direct connection to the Cable Co.

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.
