IG.JOH.BUCHER

Hey All,

I found this today at an estate sale (see link). It appears to be in pretty good shape. Does anyone know anything about it? I searched for Joh Bucher but really didn't find anything.

Thanks
Matt

Re: Does this Marx count?

Hey Rudi,

Thanks for the info. I'm in Chicago so I could definitely get to Milwaukee. I'll check that out.

Best
Matt

Does this Marx count?

Hey All,

I found this Marx Pianophone at an estate sale. Is this regarded by the community as a zither? If not, is there a forum fo instruments like this? Would standard zither strings would be suitable to use on this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Matt

Re: Estate sale find

Hey Rudi,

Thanks for the input. The case is made of wood and has lovely dovetail joinery. I have the tuning pegs. I had removed them for cleaning and also to look for any markings.
