Gorgeous antique Brambach baby grand piano. This beauty still plays great, has been professionally moved when necessary, and tuned biannually. All components are in good working condition. Some very small amounts of ivory chipping on the ends of the keys, as to be expected of a piano this age. There are some small minor scratches and blemishes on the exterior, nothing major. I inherited this piano and do not need two grands in my house.
Serial number G 66759, I believe puts it manufactured in the 1910's.
Established in 1823, the Brambach Piano Company was one of the earliest and largest piano manufacturing companies in the USA.
Because the Brambach Piano factory was so large, it was capable of producing pianos in great numbers. One might expect the quality to diminish under such circumstances, but this was not the case - Brambach pianos are generally considered to be consistently good quality, with pure tone.
The Brambach Piano Co. focused on making the smallest grand made in the country, realizing that a small grand would fit in the average home and bring rich and mellow sound to a greater number of aficionados. The Brambach Grand pianos had their patented Brambach Tone Expander and custom soundboard. This Tone Expander increased and expanded the volume of tone to sound like one that was typically found in a full-size grand. The Brambach Player Grand combined the piano and a player mechanism to market their pianos as being standout in quality.
The actions used in Brambach Grand pianos were all made at in the Brambach plant. The actions gained an industry reputation for being durable compared to most contemporary piano soundboards. Brambach grands are made in three sizes, 4 feet 8 inches, 5 feet, and 5 foot 5 inches the largest, which this one is.
