Hallet, Davis & Co. 5-foot Baby Grand Piano.
This graceful piano is elegantly adorned with beautiful spade legs and a modern styled cabinet with clean crisp lines. The classic polished ebony polyester resin finish would make an excellent addition to any homes’ decor. Multiple coats were applied and after the required drying time, the cabinet was hand-buffed to a mirrored high-gloss sheen. This Hallet Davis model H-152 grand piano was skillfully crafted from the world’s finest materials. Hand selected hardwood and genuine wood veneers were incorporated to build this musical instruments’ cabinet. It features the finest 100% wool German hammer and damper felts, German steel strings and pure copper-wound bass strings. The 1620 sq. inch soundboard and ribs are built from long-grained solid Sitka spruce. The German delignit glue pinblock has 17 plies of hard maple. White spruce and maple make up the keyboard, action parts, hardwood rim and beams. It features a wet sand cast plate (harp), solid brass pedals and a host of other components are comprised of quality materials. All woods were kiln dried to international standards so the piano can thrive in dry climates like ours. Though the piano was assembled in China, using German scale and technical designs coupled with precision machinery, Hallet Davis has succeeded in developing a high-quality European-styled piano at an affordable price.

This piano was originally purchased at the Hallet, Davis & Co. authorized dealership, Kitt Fine Pianos at the Cottonwood Mall in Albuquerque. It has lived its entire life here in this arid climate and it is happily acclimated and well adjusted to the low humidity. These are durable, low-maintenance, well-built pianos and it should give decades of musical enrichment to the next owner. The piano had very little playing time so there is minimal wear in the action and other moving parts. It is in excellent condition – structurally and aesthetically. Only the best technicians have serviced the piano. We are happy to warrant the instrument for two years. We had to do very little to it in the 88 Keys Piano Restoration shop and it was in nearly sell-able condition when we acquired it. The original adjustable artist bench is included. Complimentary local, first-floor professional delivery is included.
Not a big, loud tone for the concert hall… but a pretty tone for the home.
As beautiful inside as outside – reflection

Originally established in Boston in 1839, Hallet, Davis & Co. is one of the oldest American names in piano manufacturing. Hallowed, staid and revered the company has a rich history. They have received numerous competitive awards and medals at World’s Fairs and the greatest expositions world-wide. During the Paris Exhibition of 1867 Franz Liszt, the great pianist-composer, played on a Hallet Davis piano and enthusiastically endorsed it. So did Johann Strauss in Berlin, 1871. In 1911, His Holiness Pope Pius X selected a Hallet Davis for the Vatican and awarded its makers a gold medal. Mr. Hallet and Mr. Davis are long gone of course, so the company has had various owners. For most of the 20th century they were part of the Aeolian-American Piano Company empire. Fine old brands like Chickering, Mason & Hamlin, Knabe, Sohmer and others were also built by Aeolian at their factories in East Rochester, NY and Memphis, TN. Shortly after Aeolian-American’s demise in 1985, North American Music in New York acquired the rights to build the piano and the Galanti family have been wonderful stewards of this renowned old American brand. The instruments are currently built to the highest standards and integrity by the highly-rated Pearl River Piano company in their modern factory in China. At 3.2-million square feet it is the largest piano factory in the world and their pianos are sold in over 112 countries.
