This is a “Piannino,” the rare early version of the famous 45″ upright, which is still in manufacture, and costs $30,000. Structurally it’s exactly the same piano, but fitted in a Deco case, as befits its 1949 date of manufacture. I have reconditioned the case, and cleaned, repaired, and polished the original ivory keys. I also have replaced its original rather worn out hammers with new custom-bore Abels, and done a complete action and keybed regulation. The soundboard is perfect, and between that and those excellent hammers, the piano has a truly remarkable tone. You will never find a modern Steinway upright that sounds like this!
Worth a trip just to play it. I got the best matching bench available. $7000
