🤗Buenos dias Amigos, full gear now on the. 🎹Baltimore 1916 🎹 Wm.Knabe & Co. 80881 Brown mahogany. This is the story about this piano. 👂👂👂Once upon a time... ...I got call from a person who was selling this piano in New Jersey, I asked to her to send me pictures of it, specifically of the soundboard keys, legs and piano lid open and close. 📸When I received the pictures, I knew right away that the piano had a rough life, it had a broken agraffe right on the middle of the tenor section, the soundboard had cracks and the finishing was very beating, basically it was a piano that was not on conditions to be sold as it was.😑 Sometimes 500.00 is expensive for a piano that has not been well maintained.😮 I was very honest to the person and told her that anybody that will buy the piano would have to invest a good amount of money just to get it play. She sounded worry more for the fact that they needed to empty the house before they moved to a smaller apartment. To be honest I kind of feel guilty but then again is better to be honest!👌 These days trying to get rid of a piano is expensive if you are hiring professionals so that option for her was a bad one. She called back days later and asked me if I could just take the piano. Knabe's are among my favorites, having a chance to restore it means a lot to me. Also she really need the piano out and I am the person who can fix this piano.🕺🕺🕺 🤟🤟🤟I agreed to take the piano and pay for the move, hey! I love PIANOS and 1. The person who called was helped 2. I will be able to give some love and restore this piano. 3. This is a diamond in rough shape now but wait till we make it it's best. Anybody who gets this piano will be much lucky and happy. Let's see how the story ends... To be continued... Happy Saturday @apianoshop.#saturday#tbh#pianomoving#knabepiano#1916#baltimore#newjersey#newyork#yonkersny#pianotechnician#pianorebuilding#pianorestoration#pianotuner#opio20#pianotechnology#pianist#concertpianist#pianista#pianotunernyc#grandpiano#steinway#steinwayandsons#masonandhamlin#apianoshop#concertpiano#pianorestorer#artisan#instapiano#smallbusinesssaturday#story
I think this is our first #streetphotography repost! It was taken by @photographybycarlene the other day - “Breaktime for the cooks at China Inn on South Broadway in Yonkers, NY that make Chinese & Spanish dishes”.
