If yes, is Jewish music available?

Who does this?

What do they cost?

What does a brand new player piano cost?

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I haven't but once looked into getting one. I think you can buy a new one for under $5k, might be bit higher by now. Obviously this is lower end piano but can be decent. I don't know about converting an upright into a player but once you have a player piano, you can put music on it yourself. If you want Jewish music, you can record it being played and play it back.

I called my piano's manufacturer, and they saud it can be converted to player for minimum $5,000, up to 10,000.

I dont think Id want to spend that much bec my piano is good but not gorgeous.

I wonder what the really nice antique looking ones cost.

Have you looked at resale sites for pianos? I've seen player pianos on them every now and then.
You can also try calling hotels or music schools/colleges in your area to find out if they're selling any of their older pianos.
Also maybe try a piano store rather than the manufacturer. It might be cheaper.
What brand is your piano?
