Broadwood Grand Piano

Item number: 100000004023
This 'model 69' grand in mahogany satin finish piano dates from 1964. The ivory keyboard is in good condition and felt hammer heads are not badly worn. Satisfactory stringing with the tuning pins holding the strings sufficiently. The piano is in need of attention to it's sound and has faded casework as a result of exposure to sunlight. This is a large grand with great potential.

Item Specifics
Condition: USED

We have had this piano inspected by Broadwoods themselves, and the below is from the report we received: 

Inspection of your Broadwood grand piano serial no. 263,935

"This piano dates from 1964: on the 6th April that year, the instrument was despatched from our works, having been sold to the 'Pianoforte Publicity Association'.  It is described in our records as a 'model 69' grand in a mahogany satin finish, and was the largest and best grand we manufactured in 1964.  

The piano in question was carefully examined by my colleague xxx on 14th August 2014.  He noted tha tthe soundboard had started to split under the bass strings, and that there was evidence of general moth damage to the felts.  The casework had faded on the sides of the piano as a result of exposure to sunlight. 

Apart from these drawbacks, the ivory keyboard is in very good condition, and the felt-covered hammer heads are not badly worn.  The stringing is satisfactory, and the tuning pins hold the strings sufficiently tightly.  Nevertheless, the piano is in need of attention to it's 'sound': the tone is very hard in the middle octaves (as a result of compression of the hammer felts through playing), whilst the sound is comparatively soft in the high treble.
