I am a NYC piano tuner / technician with 24 years experience, managing the sale of this piano for the owner.
After recent cleaning, a thorough inspection and tuning, I can attest that this piano is in extraordinary well-kept original condition as described. I can answer any technical questions, speak with your tuner/tech if possible, or provide more detailed photographs. Piano can be viewed by appointment.

The instrument is almost completely Factory Original with the original Ebonized / Satin Black finish.
Exceptions appear to be:
- New hammer shank at Eb2.
- Hammer felt and Backchecks are in good condition, look and sound likely to be replacements from original, but in very good used condition, as is the rest of the piano.
Other action parts, wippens, dampers, damper levers, pedal mechanisms, etc, are in very good condition, all working evenly.
The tuning pins and pin block are still tight and hold a fine tuning, throughout.
Strings still have clear tone and tune to very good unisons, octaves, double octaves, etc.
Ivory and Ebony keys are in excellent condition, key buttons and key bushings are all very good.
The piano was recently cleaned inside and out, and it was tuned to A440.
Inspection of the soundboard at first glance, there were no obvious cracks, but closer inspection revealed minor hairlines, with no effect on the soundboard function.
Bridges, down bearing, plate, bracing, and the exclusive Mason & Hamlin Tension Resonator are all very good.
Sound is even throughout the range, no dead spots or loss of dynamic range.
Included in the purchase is a matching bench, in similar condition and vintage.

Piano Condition: The condition of this piano is Very Good.
A Very Good rating means that the piano is free of any major defects. Many pianos owned by consumers fall into this category. The finish will have only minor blemishes, few scratches or wear to finish; exceptionally clean for its vintage; no dents, and there are no major mechanical problems.

This piano is ready to go to your home and to be enjoyed, just as it is.

The buyer is responsible for employing a professional bonded and insured piano mover. We can recommend a local professional piano mover or you may provide your own. We can help with arrangements in either case.
