Piano's Personal History:

1910 Weber 5 '6" Grand. Serial #65425

This is a California owner piano that has been kept in good condition. It was recently donated to a nonprofit organization. It sounds great and has a big full bass, singing midrange and clear bell-like treble. The Vintage American made Weber piano was internationally renowned as a concert instrument. The pianist Paderweski did his concert tours with the Weber grand.

This piano was built to last. It has a beautiful set of original ivories in excellent condition, just reconditioned. Cabinet has a beautiful reddish brown fiddleback mahogany veneer. Hammers shanks and flanges have been replaced (some years ago) Strings have been replaced (some years ago) It has new keybushings and keyframe felts, new damper felts. It has a full sostenuto pedal. It was recently tuned, regulated and voiced by Piano Finders. Brass has been polished and clear coated. Soundboard in good condition, no cracks. Original case finish has been touched up, (still has some crazing and character marks).

Nice sound, a joy to play. It has more sustain in the tone than a 6'1" Kawai, Boston or Yamaha Grand because of its wet sand cast plate and because the construction of the rim is made from maple and other hardwoods. The Asian made pianos use a vacuum plate casting process and softer woods in their rims that cause the tone to die faster. For those who prefer the richness and warmth of a full and sustained tone, this piano is ideal.

Bench is included in the price.

Market Evaluation for this Piano:

Vintage Weber grands, like Vintage Steinways are considered desirable pianos, because of their superior design and quality. The nearest new equivalent would be a new Baldwin R which retails between $36,000 to 64,000. (The new Weber pianos made today are not considered to be an equivalent to the vintage Webers, because they do not have as high quality design and workmanship and are made in China instead of the United States.)
