When pianos come into our workshop in transition to their final destination we can take a look and offer a free assessment.
In this case the piano is a Kaps upright from 1900. The casework is in good condition with only a few paint stains which can be removed. If the damage is only light scratches it can be removed easily, if it is more noticeable the piano can be polished.
The tuning pins were a small size which is good for replacing them with a larger size. Between the bass strings and the treble strings there is a gap, in this piano there is not much tonal difference which is a good indicator of quality. A fundamental sign when deciding whether or not a piano is worth the work you will put into it should you commence the restoration process.
