I'm not sure, in where to put an anouncement like this, I hope it is no problem, having it here.

This will be interesting for users from europe, because the piano stands in Budapest.
I bought a piano a year ago. Except the finish it was rebuilt. I have done some work on it (regulating acton, intonating hammers, rebuilding legs, piano cover, hydroceel...) but don't have the money for refinishing. I need some money and the only way to earn some is to sell one of my pianos. Because of the value of the Blüthner I decided to sell it (it really is not easy to make a decision like that...). You can come and have a look at it, it's in good condition, has new hammers, felts, tuning pins,etc.. It has a beautiful ornate frame.
Umfortunately it has some cracks in the soundboard which are not audible.

The price of the piano is 4000 €.

You can PM me or send me an email to benecs@hotmail.com, or you can also ask questions in this thread.

We rebuilt this exact model a couple of years ago and it turned out to be one of the most extraordinary pianos I have ever heard. And it looked gorgeous. It was a major restoration though including new soundboard and new keyset.

Pre WWI Bluethners can be very special pianos.

"Please do not use this forum to advertise your own business or pianos for sale.
We have an excellent source for selling pianos through The Piano Exchange"

Now I found it, sorry, I really haven't seen that.

My first exposure with a Bluthner was playing one that Cunningham had just rebuilt in 1990 or so. The piano had a sweet delicate voice that seemed to be the same that Brahms and Beethoven heard as they composed.

Although the new Bluthners are beautiful pianos, they are different beasts now. I have yet to play a new one that speaks to me in the same way the earlier ones did.

Alex once had the same piano when still at Classical grands in Seattle,
I fondly took the picture of him playing it:

Apparently Bluethner presently plans to recreate the tone of this historic piano.

Rich, I encourage you to play a new Blüthner I think you may revise your opinion.

Norbert, You sneaky so and so. Thanks for posting that it brings back many great memories.

Alex,

It was great to see you at NAMM, but maybe I need to make a trip to Sacramento sometime soon.

All the best,

Rich, it was great seeing you, we'll have to continue our conversation sometime. If you ever make it to Northern California you must pay a visit!
