Elegant Decker & Son Traditional Style Black Lacquer Baby Grand Piano
This is a beautiful traditional style Decker & Son baby grand piano in a black lacquer finish. This piano is an "Apartment Size" baby grand piano, and is ideal for someone with limited space. Decker & Son built pianos from about 1856-1949, and they were well known for their quality and craftsmanship.
Today, piano manufacturers tend to put their better quality, materials, and workmanship in their larger, more expensive pianos. Modern manufacturers count on people buying small pianos for aesthetics rather than for function, so they are able to make small new pianos of lesser quality that sell. You can buy a new Asian imported baby grand piano for well under $10,000, but you get what you pay for. You get particle board cabinets, plastic action parts, acrylic veneer, and green unseasoned wood. We see these cheap new pianos suffering severe deterioration after only a few years due to the lack of quality materials and workmanship. A vintage baby grand piano like this one is made of top quality REAL wood, no plastic or particle board. Wood is what resonates to make a pianos tone quality how do you think plastic and particle board sounds?
Computerized player mechanisms can be installed if desired. A matching bench is included.
