1996 Chickering baby grand - Grand Pianos

Check out this traditional, satin ebony Chickering baby grand. This Made in the USA (by Baldwin) piano has had wonderful care through its short life. Built in 1996, this one-owner piano looks like new, plays great and has a beautiful tone for a piano that is only 4'11" long! This instrument is not going to dominate your entire living room. It has a small footprint yet makes a bold statement.

The brass hardware has great lustre, the keys are nice and white, the copper strings are nice and shiny, the fancy soundboard decal adds a touch of elegance, the traditional satin ebony finish keeps the piano from looking to "plastic"....this piano has just the right amount of detail. Not too much, not too little.

It is difficult to determine what a piano similar to this would list for currently, because there are very few American made pianos anymore. If you compare to the smallest Steinway S....over $71K. When Baldwin was still building there pianos in the U.S., their model M was in the $40K range if my memory serves me correctly. We are indicating a "comparable new" piano would be around $25K....but it is difficult to find something comparable. 

You can find an Asian-built piano fairly cheap....but most of them won't hold a candle to this piano. If you think we are blowing smoke, you need to come play this piano. You will be really surprised how good it plays and sounds!! Maybe this is what American craftsmanship is all about?

Here is your chance to own a piece of American history. Chickering was founded in 1823 by Jonas Chickering...that is 196 years ago!! 

Come give this piano a test drive and see why we like it so much.
