There's a 1935 L that has been refurbished for sale in my area. I've played it and it sounds really good.

They are asking about $28,000 for it. How does this compare with other used Steinway L's of that era?

No one can give an accurate assessment of a used piano without seeing it. Condition means a lot, while descriptions of condition mean little.

BDB speaks wisely.

A huge number of 1935 Steinway L pianos could easily have $28000.00 worth of work put into them to bring them to their performance potential.

Without seeing what has been done - and much more importantly - the quality of what has been done - any value we give would have little meaning.

As a start, you could go to www.ptg.org, click on find a technician, then follow the prompts. It may be a good idea to hire an independent technician to examine the piano for you.
