This is a beautiful vintage "Vertegrand" Steinway manufactured in 1906. It has the “large” wonderful Steinway sound.
This vintage Steinway has been completely refurbished. The piano action has been regulated to factory specifications at the time it left the factory. Each key has a 35-point checklist to insure proper operation. The hammers have been filed. The key touch has been corrected. The pins have been lubricated. The piano has been tuned. The keys, case, and pedals have all been polished.
WHY buy a piano certified by a Registered Piano Technician? Knowing that the piano has been serviced and is in good working order is like buying a certified used car from a dealer. All of the required preventive maintenance has been performed. Buying this piano gives you, the buyer the peace of mind that there are no hidden issues that might require additional repairs.
Buying a used piano from a private party, or a piano dealer for that matter, that has not been refurbished, means the piano has not had any remedial corrective work and will not play as it was designed and manufactured. Will it bother a typical buyer? Maybe...maybe not. It is, however, quite likely that when a Piano Technician comes to tune, there will be "maintenance" work recommended.
A full regulation with corrective work performed on an upright piano runs $500-$850. This work has all been done yet our pianos are priced competitively with pianos that have not had corrective work accomplished.
Moving is not included. We recommend using only piano movers. Believe it or not, piano moving is a specialized trade. We can arrange the move or I can give you a list of the movers that have done a good job for us.
Pianos that we have refurbished or completely rebuilt include Steinway, Bechstein, Baldwin,Mason & Hamlin, Chickering, Yamaha, Kawai, and Knabe.
