Wheelock 5′ Baby Grand Piano in red mahogany.
This older grand piano was built in 1938 and was traded-in to us for a newer model. It spent decades in a small-town New Mexican church and has a lot of positive energy. It is happily acclimated to our unique high desert climate and is a stable musical instrument. This Wheelock grand piano is 5’ in length so it would fit nicely in smaller spaces. The factory held high standards for workmanship and constructed well-built pianos. Its overall condition is pretty good for its age. It is a functional instrument, tuned to concert pitch and holding. The piano-action works well. The tone is adequate if not pretty in some sections. The mahogany cabinet has the amount of patina you would expect for a “working piano”. It includes a matching bench that is possibly the original. It would not be worth pouring a lot of money into a major refurbish or refinish. It would make more sense to appreciate it for what it is – an older grand piano that still has quite a bit of life in it. 88 Keys Piano Warehouse & Showroom price – $2500.
