I'm going to guess it could sell somewhere in the high teens, if it's in a good state of tuning, regulation, voicing, and aesthetics. That's just a guess. You probably paid somewhere in the mid 20s for the piano when it was new, right? There is a pretty healthy market for good ...

Interesting conversation. Beemer, even if your strings are perfectly rendered, and the pins beautifully set, one would still only know the true condition of the tuning, at a reasonably later point in time, by giving each note a hard and rapid double blow. That would rerender th...
