This exceptional instrument was selected for the owner by James Tocco, winner of the Munich International Piano Competition and professor emeritus of the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music and Manhattan School of Music. The tone is full and resonant throughout the registers, and the action is light and responsive. It has a beautiful walnut case, which is no longer available as a factory option. The piano has only had one owner and has been professionally maintained throughout its lifetime by piano technicians at Texas Tech University. It was last tuned two weeks ago. In 1985, the piano technician noticed a small crack in the plate, so the piano was returned to the factory for a new Accu-Just hitch pin plate, new strings, and a new pinblock. This plate was an upgrade from the previous plate, making it a like-new instrument. No problems have been encountered since that time. For the past 20 years, the piano has been equipped with a complete Dampp-Chaser system, which has kept the soundboard in remarkable condition. The piano comes with the Dampp-Chaser unit, a matching adjustable bench with two sets of legs of variable heights, a waterproof vinyl cover, and floor caster cups. It was appraised in 2010 for $16,000-18,000. The seller will provide free basic delivery of the piano to any location within 800 miles of Lubbock, TX (the buyer will pay for unusual costs such as extra stairs, sidewalk permits, etc.).
