Estonia model L190 Grand Piano

Estonia model L190 Grand Piano

Stunning Hidden Beauty 6’-3” Conservatory Grand Piano.

  Estonia pianos are rare gems but rarer still are their “Hidden Beauty” furniture styles. A polished ebony grand piano is a beautiful furniture piece obviously, but lifting the lid unveils a stunning inner rim of African Bubinga, an exotic wood found in the jungles. The wood is valued for its attractive grain patterns, diverse reddish colors and durability.

This piano has a warm, rich singing tone-quality and a wide dynamic range. The tone is mellow and European inspired. It would be ideal for classical music from Mozart or Beethoven. The bass response is strong and robust partially due to its extended 6’-3” length. Most manufacturers build a 6’-1” size for their Conservatory grand piano model. It plays expressively and emotively, and the piano-action is accurate and precise.

In 1994 the company was privatized under the Estonia name, with the managers and employees as owners. During the following years, Indrek Laul, an Estonian recording artist with a doctorate in piano performance from the Juilliard School of Music, gradually bought shares of the company from the stockholders until, in 2001, he became sole owner. Dr. Laul lives in the U.S. and represents the company here. In 2005, at its 100th-anniversary celebration, the Juilliard School named him one of the school’s top 100 graduates; and in 2015, the President of Estonia awarded Laul the Presidential Medal, in recognition of the contribution Estonia pianos have made to awareness of that country. Estonia makes 200 to 300 pianos a year, all grands, mostly for sale in the U.S.

Yamaha model P2 Studio Upright Piano

Yamaha model P2 Studio Upright Piano

Ideal for a working piano studio.

  The no frills model P2 at the time was a part of the Yamaha Classic Collection. The P-series has historically been one of Yamaha’s most popular vertical piano line and has had huge financial success. Living space is at a premium in Japan and Europe so fewer grands are sold, making a strong case for a high-quality upright like this. Yamaha also has factories situated in China and Indonesia where their lesser quality lines of pianos are built. Lower labor costs there enable more economical price points. Designed for the experienced pianist and professional musician, the Yamaha model P2 Studio piano was built in the main factory in Hamamatsu, Japan and offers outstanding musical performance, setting the standards by which many other upright pianos are measured. A perennial favorite among discerning pianists, they feature outstanding tone, touch and durability.

As always, this piano is sourced locally, per our company policy. It has lived here in Albuquerque for at least the past twenty years so it is happily acclimated to our unique desert Southwest climate. Though this Yamaha model P2 Studio piano was manufactured in 1965, it was played very little so the moving parts in the action have minimal wear. It has recently been serviced by competent and knowledgeable technicians. It is in excellent condition – structurally and aesthetically, and should offer you decades of musical fulfillment.

Yamaha has had a well-deserved reputation for superior quality control and virtually perfect preparation at the factory. They arrive at the dealership in flawless condition. Technicians are enthusiastic about servicing them due to their exceptional engineering and design. Many highly respected musicians are Yamaha Artists and endorse these pianos. Elton John comes to mind. Many schools of music have become All-Yamaha Schools as a means to attract students desiring quality musical instruments during their studies and practice. Institutions especially like the low-maintenance character of these pianos because they are averse to recurring budget costs for tuning and service. You will find their products nearly everywhere else too: homes, churches, on stage, in the recording studio, and the like.

Excellent condition – inside and out.

It has the classic Yamaha “feel”; the accuracy and responsiveness that permits vivid musical expression and a wide dynamic range. The tone is rich and colorful. Being a 45” vertical, the bass is strong and robust. We had only to do our usual dealer prep in our restoration shop and nothing more. That means pitch correction, voicing, tightening action screws, minor action regulation, cleaning inside, etc. It has the classic Yamaha evenness of touch; fast, accurate and responsive with an excellent repetition. The tone is also classic Yamaha. It is harmonic-rich and sonorous with an excellent dynamic range, meaning the pianist can perform the subtlest pianissimos and most forceful fortissimos. The finish is classic satin ebony. Complimentary local, first-floor professional delivery is included. The original matching bench has music storage.

44-inch Seiler Family of Pianos Upright.

  European-inspired and a mellow tone quality, it has a warmth that is very pleasant. The Seiler piano history traces its lineage to the land of Mozart and Beethoven in the Prussia region of Europe.

The piano is in excellent condition – structurally and aesthetically. It has lived its short life here in Albuquerque so it is happily acclimated and fully adjusted to our unique dry climate and it should provide decades of musical enrichment. It is a one owner and sadly they can not take the piano with them in a move. It is nearly brand new and the 88 Keys Piano Restoration shop had to do very little to prep the instrument for sale. We will be happy to offer a two-year warranty and professional tuning after delivery.

Love at first sound.

In July 2013, the new Johannes Seiler line was introduced. Though it features cabinetry as beautiful as that of its more expensive brethren, this lower-cost line has its own scale design not shared by other Samick-owned brands, and is produced entirely in the company’s Indonesian facility, using Samick’s premium action and hammers from Abel. These three grand and three vertical models can be identified by the “Johannes Seiler” label on the fallboard. Larry Fine, author “The Piano Book”

Steinbach model MP-122 Studio Upright Piano

Steinbach model MP-122 Studio Upright Piano

48-inch Professional Upright Piano in Polished Mahogany.

  A surprisingly good tone quality for a piano with very little name recognition. We were a little shocked when we first played it. The bass response is robust and clear. The tenor is warm and rich. The treble sings with a bell-like quality and substantial tone. The tone quality (timbre) is center-mellow. The sustain or duration of tone is lengthy and not percussive. The dynamic range is wide permitting quieter pianissimos and louder fortissimos allowing the pianist to play more expressively and emotively. This Steinbach model MP-122 studio upright is known as a “Stencil piano”. It was built by the Pearl River piano company but it’s unclear who the distributor is that ordered the Steinbach piano product line.

Excellent condition – structurally and aesthetically.

Queen Anne furniture styling with cabriole legs.

This beautiful instrument was barely played by the previous owners who considered it to be the elegant focal point of their formal living room. For that reason, there is minimal wear in the piano-action, trapwork and other moving parts. It is in excellent condition, structurally and aesthetically. It should provide many more decades of musical enjoyment. We will be happy to offer a two-year warranty. It came to us needing very little in the way of piano dealer prep in our 88 Keys Piano restoration shop. We cleaned it thoroughly, regulated and tightened the piano-action and tuned with only a slight pitch correction.
