BIO-ADV

"Cramer's Great Musical Depot, 4 and 5, Westmoreland Street. — The business, which claims to be the largest pianoforte and music warehouse in Europe, was established in 1801 by Marcus Moses, and certainly, under its present management, is a very thriving; and flourishing affair. The premises are very commodious, and well adapted to the necessities of the business. The stock of instruments to select from is such as cannot be seen elsewhere, and consists of grand, semi-grand, and cottage pianofortes by the most eminent makers — such as Collard & Collard, Erard, Broadwood, Cramer, Hopkinson, Chappell, and all the best-known Continental makers. Cramer & Co. were the originators of the three years'
system, which may be considered as one of the greatest boons of this musical age, because it places first-class instruments within the reach of all, even in cases where the mere buying and paying down cash for a piano would be out of the question for a man with a very moderate income. But by this arrangement he may secure a really good instrument at a small quarterly payment, which he can well afford, as, having made provision for it, he would never miss the amount. This firm are sole agents for Ireland for several of the most noted makers, so that their instruments can only be obtained at this house. The proprietors give a written guarantee for the genuineness of the instruments, so that the affairs of the firm are conducted with the strictest integrity. Besides instruments, the firm supply, in a special department, printed music of all kinds. A very large selection is kept in stock, but any piece that does not happen to be in stock is supplied upon the shortest notice to order. The business is carried on withe tact and energy, experienced assistants are employed, and the house is held in high repute all over the country for the uniform excellent quality of their instruments. The gentlemen constituting the firm are well known to be of the highest commercial status, and recognised authorities on the selection of pianos, being highly esteemed by their numerous patrons for their courtesy, and the careful organis.ition of their immense business and the staff employed therein. All orders are executed in the most efficient and satisfactory manner, and with every advantage to the purchaser. The house enjoys a splendid business reputation, and its long establishment, well-sustained good name, and capable present management, all combine to strengthen and enhance the popular confidence and favour in which it is to-ilay so widely and deservedly leid, being, as it is, a credit to the energy of the proprietors, and the imponant trade it so ably represents."
