Built in 1903, this historical grand was partially restored in the 1980's by James Reeder. It has returned to Reeder pianos a 2nd time for general reconditioning and cleaning, and is in top notch condition! The soundboard is original, as are the action parts. This piano has unique features that have been wonderfully preserved, including original ivories.
The pinblock, strings and pins were replaced in the 1980's along with the hammers and felts in the action. The finish is original to the piano, with some repairs, as is the soundboard, bridges and action parts. This is an historical grand with the Victorian style case that plays wonderfully and is a very fine instrument!
This beautiful piano has been inspected and reconditioned in our restoration center by our expert technicians.
The Erard piano company began way back in 1777 in Paris, France by Sebastien Erhardt, who changed his name to Erard to fit in better with the Parisian culture. At that time, the company made harpsichords and was very well known throughout Europe for their fine instruments. The history of the company is varied, with instruments manufactured both in France in England over the years, however its primary location was Paris. The invention of the modern action is attributed to the Erard's son Pierre, who took over the company after Sebastian died in 1831.
Eventually in the 1960's the Erard company merged with the French piano manufactures Gaveau and Pleyel and then Schimmel in the 1970's.
