For sale is a fine treasure - a 1900 Knabe Parlor Grand restored by one of the finest technicians in
Southern California (and beyond).

It appears that this piano had 3 owners (including me). Serial #:47782

I'm a pianist, so my primary concern was to bring back this wonderful instrument as close as possible to its original glory.

There are original parts that did not warrant replacement: the pin block, the sound board and the ivory and ebony keys.

The restoration included a full restringing with new pins, most of the action (hammers, custom wippens - each had to be modified for a piano of this age) and dampers.

A full regulation, voicing and tuning completed the job. The action is thoroughly consistent and the sound is gorgeous.

The case of the piano is walnut with beautiful grain. The refinishing of the exterior must have been done by different people. Most of the piano is a beautiful, light walnut. The legs and top are darker. I would love to bring them to the color and finish that most of the piano possesses, but I have already spent far too much on the restoration and the sound is not affected. The walnut seat is most likely not original, but it is functional and strong.
