This 1938 Concord Upright Grand Piano has just been released from our piano restoration workshop. It is a magnificent, fully refurbished and repolished 1938 green frame 'Concord' upright grand piano (134cm tall) manufactured in New York, USA during the peak of the American Piano industry. The internal structure of the piano is of the highest quality and comprises a full double strength iron frame, quality overstrung design and handmade, solid timber underdamper American style playing action. From a structural and mechanical perspective this piano is far more superior than any modern piano you could purchase today. This amazing instrument makes a modern mass produced piano look like a toy!
The piano has undergone a full interior and exterior restoration in our workshop. The American Walnut cabinet was completely stripped back to bare wood, sanded flat, prepared and fully re-French polished by hand in an amazing and deep honey colour mimicking the tones of Brazilian Mahogany.
The interior underwent an overhaul of the entire playing mechanism, keyboard and pedal mechanisms. This included replacement of all major felts throughout including high quality hammer heads, and dampers, bridle tapes, springs and all centre pins. All pedal felts, levers and springs were also removed and replaced.
The original ebony and ivory keyboard has been fully restored to concourse condition and looks amazing. All keybed, felts and pins have also been fully replaced or refurbished.
Nothing has been left to chance with this restoration and no stone was left unturned. The piano also comes with a chronological photo album showing the various stages of the restoration process.
This is a beautiful original American piano suitable for all levels of playing from beginners to advanced musicians. It has a lovely warm tone typical of a piano from this era. Give your home a unique feature piece that will only appreciate in value as these high quality European pianos become more rare and collectable.
The price of the piano includes professional, fully insured delivery, matching restored piano bench with lift up lid and a full 12 year warranty. Also included is our premium care package including free first tuning and ongoing scheduled maintenance of the piano.
