Brand: Richard Lipp, Germany
Restored by Kenneth Jones & Associates, designers, makers and restorers of pipe organs. Based in Kilcoole, Co. Wicklow. Tuned and regulated by O'Briain Pianos. A pianola restoration costs in the region of 10 to 15 thousand sterling in the UK.
Richard Lipp piano are highly regarded piano makers. They made made pianos with a superb, rich, warm and powerful tone. Their uprights, in particular those made between 1895 and 1930 are considered to be some of the best built pianos in the world, ranking alongside Steinway, Bluthner, Bechstein and other great makers.
This Lipp piano has a full rounded pure tone, excellent response and is a real pleasure to play and admire. It's an instrument with character, grace and a sound quality more in line with a baby grand piano on account of its long strings, large soundboard and the amount of work it has undergone. The internal pianola mechanism is in full working order, very rare to find one in such good condition. The piano plays itself when air has been pumped into it using pedals and we have a large supply of pianola rolls to play that feature musical favourites by great composers. A true family heirloom for all time.
