Used Parts for Player Pianos
(Page last updated on October 15, 2022)

Notice: Due to an increasing number of calls and emails concerning 'missing parts', Player-Care has created this database of Available Used Parts. To list parts or bring an outdated link to my attention - CLICK HERE.

Since this is a free service, we will post items at our convenience. Typically, items will be posted within less than 24 hours during the week. If you'd like to post a picture, send it with a note to: johnatuttle@gmail.com Also, unless otherwise requested by the person who asked to have the part/s listed here, the listing will be removed after it has been here for one full year.

Player-Care is in no way liable for any of the listings on the Used Parts page. If you feel you've been purposely misled or cheated, I'd like to know. That way I can remove a listing or post a warning. However, I will NOT get in the middle of any deal you have made with another individual. BUYER OR SELLER BEWARE!!

To find a particular part, use your browser's Edit/Find feature or scroll through the page.

comments: These are used Ampico 'A' Block Valves of the later version. They are about 100 years old. So, they probably need to be rebuilt. They are being offered for $9.50 each (includes new gasket). They will be shipped in a USPS Small Flat Rate box, which currently costs $10.90 (minimum). For other available parts -click here.

comments: These are the legs and attaching parts from an 1890's upright piano. The overall height is 20-1/2". The decorative carvings are not veneer. They are actually carved into the wood, which I believe is mahogany. Obviously, the parts have been painted. Click on any image to see the full size picture. Asking $45.00 for the set. Shipping will be via the least expensive method possible. Shipping weight is nine pounds. Box size is 23" x 13" x 7".

subject: Stained Glass Panels
address: 407 19th Ave
city: Brick
state: New Jersey
zip: 08724
country: USA
phone: 732-840-8787

comments: I had these stained glass panels completed in 2000. They were going to be used in a player piano that was going to be converted into a nickelodeon. The total cost was $862.00 (original receipts available). They measure 43" x 15" and 35-3/4" x 10-1/2". Although it might not be clear, what made these panels expensive is the bevelled glass in both of the patterns in the middle of each piece and the bevelled glass for the clear rectangles and diamond-shaped pieces in the clear border of the larger piece and the green border of the smaller piece (locations more clearly visible in this picture -click here). I will sell these for $680.00 plus the cost of shipping.

One of the better sources of used parts is the Mechanical Music Digest On a regular basis, members post items that they have for sale or that they are giving away. Such items are listed in the Archives as "FS".
To qualify as a "missing part", the part must have already been removed from the piano. We will not accept listings for things like 'mostly intact player piano, parts available' or 'free player: for parts'. This listing is for parts that are basically intact and in need of restoration. "New Parts" do not qualify as 'missing parts'. If you have a new part that you'd like to sell, contact John Tuttle.

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.
