Piano has not been refinished, and has its original antique exterior.
From Wikipedia: “In the 1770s, the Augsburg builder Johann Andreas Stein developed an entirely new action in which the orientation of the hammer was reversed, with the hammer head closer to the player. This “Viennese” action was widely used by makers in Vienna, and was the action of pianos played by Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven. It survived in Viennese pianos almost to the end of the 19th century.”

IN PROGRESS: Mid 1960’s Yamaha Console – continental style. Estimated selling price $1700-2000
Very cute with minimal wear and tear, these little Yamahas are a favorite! Its clean, streamlined design means it can fit in places bigger pianos won’t. Crisp, responsive action and clear clean tone will give any student or amateur a boost to their piano playing skills!
IN PROGRESS: Vintage late 1890’s Heintzman Upright Grand. Estimated selling price $1700-2000.
Heintzman is often called “the Steinway of Canada” and they were some of the best vintage upright pianos ever made. This one has a ton (well, maybe 1/4 ton) of character and personality. The finish has a cool antique/distressed look and the genuine ivory and ebony keys are fantastic.
IN THE QUE: 1939 Steinway M Mahogany 5’7″ grand.
With a pristine, extremely well-preserved soundboard, this piano really sings. It spent its whole life in the Pacific NW. Estimated selling price $9000-$18,000 depending on work completed. We may be able to customize this project to fit your budget.
We sometimes have other pianos in progress that are not listed. Drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.

Why Buy a Piano From Us?
Our overhead is super low, because we are a real Mom and Pop operation. Our little piano shop is located at our home near downtown Olympia, so we don’t have to pay for commercial retail space. We are family owned and operated and we don’t hire professional salespeople. That means the money you pay for our instruments goes into refined workmanship that makes our play and sound better than others you may have tried. Yet, if you compare our prices you’ll see we are very competitive.
We service pianos for many of the prestigious teachers and performers in the area. Ryan ‘s dedication to the Piano Technicians Guild has allowed him to study with some of the most well-respected technicians in the United States. Ryan has received specialized training at both Yamaha North American Headquarters in Los Angeles, and the Steinway & Sons factory in New York. Ryan’s résumé
As an advanced pianist, Ryan can experience the instrument not just as a technician, but as a musician. This allows him to bring a level of refinement to his technical work that would not otherwise be possible.
When you come to see one of our pianos you won’t be pressured into making a decision right away. In fact, we always encourage people to take their time when purchasing a piano. What is important is that you make the right choice for you. Since you’ll be dealing directly with the technician you’ll be sure to get accurate information without all the sales hype. Even if you don’t buy one of our pianos it will be an educational experience.
