This Mahogany satin 5'4" grand, built in 1946, is very pretty to look at, and a joy to play. 20-25 years ago it was restored at Reeder Pianos, which included new hammers, pinblock, strings, and it even has the original Ivory keys! Now it is back to find a new home to be cherished for years to come. This 2nd time around, it has been reconditioned and its exterior re-tinted to repair sun fading. The action is original to this piano, and you may want to upgrade. It is playable as is, however to be a really spectacular instrument, ask for the cost of upgrading the action and hammers.

Reconditioning included:

  • Inspection of Piano
  • Hammer Resurfacing
  • Aligning Hammers to Strings
  • Tightening Action Screws
  • Leveling Keys
  • Adjusting Key Dip
  • Adjusting Let-off and Backchecks
  • Cleaning the Strings
  • Polishing Keytops

  • Re-Tinting the Case
  • Adjusting the Pedals
  • Re-pinning & Replacing Felts as Needed

Made in the USA under the fine craftsmanship of the Knabe Piano Company, this will be a beautiful addition to your music studio or living room. It comes with a piano "chair" but a bench can be included if you prefer.

Knabe Piano History

Wm. Knabe & Company began manufacturing pianos in Baltimore, MD in 1839. His establishment grew until in 1908 it merged with Chickering & Foster Armstrong, two other large piano makers at the time. The Knabe company won many awards for their square grands and prided themselves in their high standards and handcrafted pianos. In 1932 Knabe once again merged with the Aeolian piano company, who continued to make the piano until 1981. Today the the piano is a subsidiary of the Samick Music Corporation, who continue to produce pianos under the Knabe name.
