Finish: Dark Mahogany Satin Finish.
Description: Hardman, Peck & Co. is a well known New York manufacturer who specialized in fine quality grand pianos and high styled vertical pianos for the finest homes in East. Known for their cabinet designs, art cases and special edition pianos, Hardman became part of the Aeolian Group before World War II and ceased all operations in 1982. After years of being fallow, the name was purchased by North American Music of Nanuet, NY and they started producing a range of pianos made by Dongbei Piano Company in Northern China. These pianos are being marketed as ‘value pianos’ to compete with all the other Chinese and Indonesian made products. This piano has been untouched and unplayed since purchase. It was purchased new from Performance Pianos by a local family in 2007. Due to divorce, the piano was sold and we have completely refurbished the piano, resolved some technical issues and now can offer this as a fine value in a studio upright piano. Significant German voicing and specific readjustment of both the stringing and action relationships have yielded a much higher level of quality and performance than available from a new Hardman from any dealer!
