Description:

This upright transposing piano was made in 1940 by Weser Brothers, New York, for Irving Berlin (1888 1989). Like many Tin Pan Alley pianists, Berlin was self-taught, preferring to play on the black keys. The key of C, he once said, is for people who study music . The transposing mechanism shifted the keyboard to allow him to stay on the black keys but produce music in other keys.
