Here's a Wellington upright for only.... $5,000.00. I know where a couple of these Wellington uprights are at. Maybe I should latch on to them.

A particular trombone, not a piano, but worthy of a chuckle...

So, if anyone ever has a question about those unique plastic Irish built pianos that somehow keep surfacing this is what they look like in good condition. With a little tape and glue it could last another owner or two. Sure is enticing at $100.00.

There is a fellow who used to post here that threw one of these into the bay and it didn’t sink..it floated….
I had one once here in the shop; really difficult to repair when the hammer flanges break away from the rail.

VINTAGE PIANO...CRICKERING UPRIGHT CONSOLE - $300 (OAK RIDGE)




OKAY IT NEEDS TO BE TUNED BUT EVERY PIANO NEEDS TO BE TUNED AFTER IT IS MOVED!?!?!

BEAUTIFUL OLDER WORKING PIANO MADE IN THE UNITED STATES BY THE CRICKERING PIANO COMPANY AND PURCHASED AT KNOXVILLE PIANO COMPANY.

I CAN EMAIL OR TEXT SOME PICTURES OR MEET YOU TO SEE IT IN PERSON. IT IS A CHERISHED PIECE OF HISTORY LOADED WITH GREAT MEMORIES BUT AFTER A DEATH IN OUR FAMILY, WE MUST PART WITH IT.

IT CAN BE MOVED EASILY BECAUSE THERE ARE NO STEPS OUT OF THE HOUSE AND IT SITS WITHIN 10 FEET OF THE EXIT DOOR.

From today's PianoMart listings for a 1913 Bechstein

"It has not suffered damages during the Spanish civil war and it is valuable as an historical piece."

Loc: Lost in cyberspace.in the UK.
Pianoloverus, I checked that advert, apparently the Bechstein also did not reside in the Kent countryside during the battle of Britain.
Nor was it involved in the D day landings.

It doesnt get around very much does it? A bit of a recluse one may say. It does sport a white feather for cowardice. Allthough it has been labelled a consciencous objector, the Bechstein is eyeing up a short residency in Iran, in the very near future.

From today's PianoMart listings: four grands where the seller apparently left off the last "0" on each of the prices yielding a refinished 1981 Steinway M for $3500 and an early 20th century rebuilt Bosendorfer of $6500.

I wonder how much it would be worth if all of the keys worked.

http://stjoseph.craigslist.org/atq/2872911426.html

I've also recently come across a Mason & Hamlin BB which the ad said originally cost $100,000 in 1979! Unfortunatly I can't recall where I saw that ad.

Ok, this isn't so much funny as just plain confusing. What the heck is the seller (probably Pascal) trying to do here? Hoping people will just be confused enough to call?

UPRIGHT PLAYER PIANO
This is an original 1980's small apartment Yamaha with storage bench seat, ideal student model, lowboy spinet, 64 keys, Tom Thumb size 45" wide x 39" hi x 26" deep, both piano and player unit work perfectly, excellent ebony finish. Comes with few player rolls.

Picture: looks like a U1 to me.
