The National Piano
  • Manufactured By: The National Automatic Music Company
  • Location: Grand Rapids Michigan
  • Made During: 1920's

The National Piano has eight tunes that originally could be selected individually. Today due to the high volume of use it had to be converted to an outside coin box. Even so, the machines can be converted back to their original mechanism. Rolls for the National Pianos were made by National and Clark Roll Company. Although distribution of the pianos was nationwide, California seemed to be the most popular single area.
