Ibach 1912 5’5” Grand Piano in High Polish Ebony | $24,900
This German made 1912 Ibach 5’5” piano (serial number 70673) is from the well heeled house of Ibach in Barmen, Rhineland, Germany. If there was a Piano Royalty, Ibach would be it! Johann Adolph began his manufacturing career in 1794 and the family has maintained 6 generations of involvement in the piano industry. Ibach has always been known for its elegant tones. The sound is very complex and is a mysterious colorful tone. The touch is designed for discriminating performance. Soft and romantic!
Obviously, the cabinet has been completely refinished throughout. The original cabinet must have been a wood finish but our designers decided to go with high polish ebony and the result was amazing. The pin block restored, new pins and new strings installed, the plate has been refinished, the soundboard restored, necessary action parts have been replaced, new hammers, restored and/or replaced hammer shanks, and the belly work and trap work (pedals and lyre) have been restored.
Steffes and Schulz GmbH of Weisbaden Germany are responsible for the refurbishments of this piano.
