The Cambridge Pianola Company is very sad to announce the recent death of its co-founder and sole proprietor FT (Tom) Poole.

The business has several large pianola restoration projects in hand and new projects will be considered as before. Sales of pianolas and pianola rolls are also continuing.

The executors of Tom's estate are consulting on the longer term future of the business with its skilled workforce. They would also be very pleased to hear any expressions of interest, or other proposals or suggestions for the long term future of the business from the many lovers of pianolas that we know are out there. If you have any suggestions or proposals please contact
