DESCRIPTION

This is a lovely apartment size baby grand from the golden era of piano building. This little piano was built by the Whitney Piano Company, one of the subsidiaries of the famous Kimball Piano Company of Chicago. It is made of elegantly carved Circassian walnut wood, and is of the French Provincial style.

Today, modern 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 piano’s tone quality…how do you think plastic and particle board sounds?

Computerized player mechanisms can be installed if desired. The original matching bench is included.
