PIANOS FOR SALE


The overwhelming majority of work I perform in the shop is what I refer to as commissioned restoration. I do, however, acquire vintage Steinway & Sons and Mason & Hamlin grands in basket-case condition that I restore and offer for sale.

Currently I have the following to offer:

Case finish:
Satin ebony

New soundboard, bridges, pinblock, strings, plate hitch pins and agraffes, Steinway hammers, Renner action parts, Tokiwa damper system, new keyset, trapwork rebuilt. New toplid, music desk, and fallboard. Case refinished in satin lacquer, replated hardware, new casters.

In addition to this completed restoration, I currently have the following vintage Steinway & Sons grand pianos ready to be restored and looking for new homes. They range in date from 1904 to 1936, and are as follows:
 

(1) B 6' 11" Ebony
(1) A2 6' 2" Mahogany
(3) A2 6' 2" Ebony
(3) O 5' 11" Mahogany
(3) O 5' 11" Ebony
(1) L 5' 11" Mahogany
(1) M 5' 7" Walnut
(2) M 5' 7" Mahogany
(1) M 5' 7" Ebony
(2) S 5' 1" Mahogany
  
I also have an ebony Stieff 9' concert grand available. This piano was originally designed as a Steinway & Sons model D clone and will be a magnificent instrument once restored, comparable to its Steinway counterpart yet selling at reduced price.

Contact me for an inspection, price and due date for any of these fine pianos.
