The Pianino stands out as one of the most successful orchestrions ever produced. Wurlitzer introduced it in 1900, at a time when demand was extremely high for self-playing music machines. It is a 44-key piano, a direct competitor with Peerless' Model 44.

Wurlitzer made Pianinos in various designs for a span of twenty-five years, making it the most successful style nickelodeon ever produced.
