Rare Wing & Son “Style 27” 5-Pedal Upright Piano
The Wing & Son Piano Company had a reputation for building only high quality pianos and sold them exclusively from lavish mail order catalogs. They were most popular for their 5-pedal “Orchestral Attachments” which mimicked harp, zither & mandolin
This piano was originally sold as the “Style 27” in lovely quarter sawn oak wood. Rather than being elaborately carved, this piano offers balanced elegance through simple lines and beautifully-figured oak wood grain. This piano is equipped with Wing & Sons exclusive 5 pedal mechanism which allows the pianist to mimic sounds of the mandolin, banjo, harp, and zither. It is such a delight to hear one of these pianos after professional restoration! When not engaged, the piano plays normally without any interference from these pedal attachments.
The sound and touch of these Wing pianos is unmatched, as they are truly magnificent, rare, and wonderful instruments. 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. An original matching piano bench is included.
