This is a premium upright piano for less than a premium price. Nearly new, this 2012 Knabe WKV-131 upright piano is reminiscent of the great uprights from years ago. The finish is hand-rubbed satin rosewood, making it a beautiful piece of furniture as well as an oustanding performer.
This piano's construction combines so many upgraded features to give you a grand piano experience in the space of an upright. At 52" tall, this piano has the dynamic range and sustain of most 5'8" grand pianos. The full-sized music desk easily hold your books, and behind the desk are extra sound vents, giving the pianist a more detailed and nuanced sound.
The soundboard is a carefully designed and tapered panel of Eastern White spruce, the same type and species used in vintage Knabe, Steinway, Mason & Hamlin, Chickering and Baldwin pianos. The bass strings all terminate at precision milled brass agraffes, just like a grand.
This Knabe upright has a feature rare among upright pianos, a true sostenuto pedal. Grand pianos feature the sostenuto, but most uprights leave this out. The sostenuto pedal is frequently used for contemporary jazz and late Romantic classical composers like Debussy & Ravel. This Knabe upright also features a lever to operate the practice rail, to play quietly.
If New, MSRP for this piano is $13,395 (The Piano Buyer, Fall 2016 - Larry Fine). Save big on this hard-to-find combination of beauty and performance.
Includes matching rosewood storage bench, 5-year parts & labor warranty.
