There is no tone which carries farther '
and moreclearly than the pure tone of ''
the human voice, and that is the very tone
that Mr. Mehlin had in mind in building
the Mehlin piano. To produce a pure
tone Mr. Mehlin devised and developed
a form of construction which he, after many experiments and
tests, believed would give it to him. That form of construc-
tion was carried out in the upright as well as in the grand and
that the duality of the tone in the Mehlin upright is of the
same timbre and the same degree of purity as in the grand,
can be amply illustrated in the playing of these two instru-
ments. Mehlin Pianos are instruments of character and' in-
diiduality. Come in to see and hear these remarkable piars.
