This piano is the gold standard for modern full-size uprights and is in superb condition. European makers have a long tradition of fine uprights for classical music lovers with small rooms. This is the best. Most players in North America have never even seen the German-made Steinway K. When they play this one, they are astounded by its touch and tone. It is far superior to the NY Steinway K and in a different league altogether from the popular Yamaha U3 52" upright. This particular piano was purchased new by a composer for his parlor and used lightly on social occasions. His main instrument, a 7' Steinway grand, was in the studio. Both were climate-controlled and maintained by a concert technician. The upright is now on consignment with Flynn Pianos in Great Barrington, MA. If you are looking for the highest quality upright at 2/3 the price of a new Steinway K, it's worth flying to Albany International airport, just one hour away, to play this one.
