The Berry Wood Piano Player Company was established in Kansas City, Missouri, in about 1907. They were an early entry into the coin piano field, and they built very rugged, handsome and durable instruments. There is no indication that Berry Wood ever built convention pianos or player pianos â only coin operated player pianos and orchestrions. Sadly, Berry Wood was out of business before 1920, so they never were able to take full advantage of the 1920's height of coin piano popularity. Berry Wood instruments are exceedingly rare today.
