Just released from our piano restoration workshop in Norwood, this is a beautiful and rare Carl Rönisch Upright Piano. This magnificent handmade instrument was manufactured in the Rönisch Piano Factory in Berlin, Germany during the peak of the European piano industry and German manufacturing. It is a 131cm high, Concert Upright model, with Patent Rönisch underdamper Action. Rönisch pianos are considered to be one of the most prestigious pianos ever made and these high-quality vintage examples are now becoming rare and extremely sought after.
The internal structure of this piano is of the highest quality and comprises a full gold-plated iron frame, quality overstrung design and handmade, solid timber patented Rönisch playing action. From a structural and mechanical perspective, this piano is far more superior than any modern piano that you could purchase today.
The piano cabinet reflects the classic styling of the time and is hand carved from European Walnut, a timber that is now extremely rare. European Walnut now retails for over $250 per square inch. The cabinet has been repolished and treated in our piano restoration workshop and all hardware, including hinges, screws, locks and pedals, have been removed and repolished.
The internal structure and mechanism has been restored to our usual high standard. We have undertaken a complete rebuild of the mechanism including all new centre pins, bridle tapes, springs and felts where required. Following restoration, the piano has been fully regulated, serviced and tuned to Concert pitch.
The original ivory and ebony keyboard is in excellent condition with no chipped or damaged keys. The keyboard felts have been replaced and the keyboard completely levelled for a smooth playing experience. The original solid brass candelabra are also still in amazing condition and are attached to the piano.
This beautiful Rönisch is an original ‘one owner’, Australian delivered and sold piano. It was originally sold by Kuhnels Piano Company in Rundle Street, Adelaide and the original sale receipt is still with the piano. Owned by a family in Unley, it has passed down through three generations.
The piano has been extremely well maintained throughout its life, with annual tuning and servicing as well regular oiling and polishing of the cabinet.
This lovely piano is suitable for pianists of all levels, from beginners to advanced. It has a lovely warm tone typical of a high-quality piano from this era. Give your home a unique feature piece that will only appreciate in value as vintage pianos of this quality become rarer and more collectable. This Rönisch piano is a ‘forever’ piano that can be passed down to future generations.
