Restored and rebuilt German Schiedmayer overstrung upright piano with medium responsive touch and full rounded tone. A large, ornate instrument with beautiful Burr Walnut case, perfect keys, and built by Schiedmayer in 1890, a highly regarded maker of upright and grand pianos.
The case was stripped back, refined, and then resprayed, giving the instrument a surface that enhances the appearance of the wood grain and the swirl patterns in the Burr Walnut veneer, but is also the easiest type of finish to keep clean, requiring no maintenance from the owner. Brassworks throughout were brought back to their original shiny finish and the all felts on the casing and music stand were replaced. The pedals are unusual, ornate, and back to their original finish. The piano has candle holders, we have left them out of the images, but come with it should you like them.
Internal mechanism called the 'action' was stripped, reconditioned with new tapes, felts, and springs, regulated, realigned, and the pins/strings removed and replaced. The original ivory keys are cleaned and buffed and in perfect condition. Piano is tall with large soundboard and very long strings for greater depth of tone, volume, and presence. To play, it's versatile for its age, and performs at its very best due to the amount of work carried out on it. The piano has a strong, potent Tenor and Bass register, with an even pure tone that is mellow sounding, and overall is dynamic for its age. A good looking piano built to last centuries if tuned at least once a year.
