This beautiful 1927 Knabe Style O grand piano is currently undergoing a full restoration and refinishing. It will be made available with or without the QRS PNOmation3 Player system.

Knabe pianos were among the finest quality instruments among their contemporaries. They are a particular favorite of our technicians. Their sound is always extraordinarily rich for their size. At the time this piano was constructed, Knabe house literature made the bold claim that they were “the World’s Best Piano”. Knabe was then the official piano of the Metropolitan Opera Company.

Before restoration, the piano had a wonderful sound, particularly considering the aged wire. We found that its bass section was particularly impressive, and restoration will greatly enhance its tone.

The original ivory keys are still in place, and are in very good condition for their age. The original ivories can be cleaned and retained, or replaced with new, modern keytop material upon request.

Before restoration photos: The finish seen in the photos below is not original, and the original color of the instrument had previously been bleached out; we have returned the instrument to its original, beautiful, reddish-brown color, and the new finish will be our signature natural, hand-rubbed tung oil finish.

Follow our Instagram feed, accutonepiano, and watch our progress in restoring this wonderful instrument — then bring the finished piano home for the whole family to enjoy!
