Kawai Howard Grand Piano

Category: Pianos Sold
Date: 2020-09-09

$10,500 SOLD!

I am pleased to offer this fully reconditioned 5' 10" grand piano. Upon completion of reconditioning work in my shop, I have enjoyed playing it immensely, and the piano has received rave reviews by other pianists.

The piano was originally manufactured by Kawai, in Japan, in 1968. This was a decade before the wide acceptance and dominance of Kawai and Yamaha in the U.S. piano market. For this model 550, Kawai licensed the Howard name for marketing through U.S. Baldwin dealers. It is vintage Kawai throughout.

Restoration work has included:

This piano is ready for a new owner.  My work objective is to satisfy a  discriminating, advanced pianist, while meeting an attractive price point.    At 5' 10" in length, the piano is larger than Kawai's current model  GL-30 (5' 5") and smaller than the GL-40 (5' 11") .   For those current models, pricing is in the range of $20,000 to $30,000.   We invite you to compare the piano to new instruments of this class. 

This lovely,  reconditioned Kawai is offered for sale at $10,500.   Price includes the artist bench shown, in-home tuning, and standard delivery along the Wasatch Front.   

Utah State sales tax is applicable to purchase.
