GRUMP 1

Piano

Recommended Posts

I am looking for some help. I have a piano I am looking to sell soon. But I am looking for some information on it and am not able to find any. So maybe some one out there can help me. It is a Hansel. It says on it Hansel The Wiley B. Allen co.. Also has Hansel E. G. Harrington & co. Makers New York. I have done an internet search on it but am not finding any thing.

Thank you,

Grump

What sort of info are you looking for? I would recommend calling a tuner in the area who can come and look at it - an educated tuner will know it inside out.

Looking to see if I can find out how old it is. Try to find out what it is worth before I try selling it for to little or to much. Also so I can give more information on it when I list it.

there should be a number inside the piano that tells when it was made. a piano tuner would be able to look this up for you.

I second the motion to check with a piano tuner. Last time I had mine out I asked him how much my piano might be worth and he took out a little book with alot of pages and lines with all makes and kinds of pianos. I thought that mine might be worth something as it is a 40+ yrs old upright piano in excellent condition, actually made out of real mahagony wood......but it's not. Mine has the name Hobart on it and was distributed by Marshall Field's and Company (the infamous Chicago store that Macy's bought out) but I think it's really a no name......and it was in there! Hope that this helps.........Good luck! Angel
