The Amazing Canadian Heintzman Transposing Piano

This acoustic piano was designed and built by the famous Heintzman company, a Canadian piano manufacturer from the early 20th century.

It is operated by the middle pedal, which raises the whippen dowels so they are not damaged when shifting the keys. Then a lever under the keybed is used to move the keys sideways so they line up under different whippens. A needle marks the key of the piano.
