Krakauer Brothers was one of the few American piano manufacturers to survive well over a century!
Krakauer Brothers built extremely high quality, expensive pianos in New York from about 1869-1980, one of the very few American piano manufacturers to survive well over a century. This baby grand piano was built by Krakauer in 1924, the “Golden Age” of piano building in America.
This piano is made of beautiful imported Honduran Mahogany wood underneath the old dark finish and is of the Traditional spade-leg style. These old finishes chemically break down and turn very dark over the years, but hidden underneath is a beautiful figured-grain mahogany wood which can be restored to either a brown or red mahogany color. The piano will be quite beautiful after professional restoration. Even now prior to restoration, the piano has a large, full sound one would expect from a well-made Krakauer piano. You simply can’t get craftsmanship like this in pianos built today!
This piano will be restored to like-new condition, inside and out. After restoration, it will rival the tone and touch of the finest new upright piano available on today’s market. If desired, this piano can be equipped with the Pianomation player system, and can play by itself by streaming music live on an iPod, computer, iPad, etc. More than 10,000 song titles are available!
The matching piano bench is included.
