Manufactured around 1931, with new designs, it has a brighter more modern tone than earlier Broadwood's.
Needless to say it is Overstrung & Underdamped

The piano case is Mahogany veneered and is in an excellent condition and nicely polished. The internals are also in excellent condition and the action has been fully serviced, has perfect set of hammers as well as new bridal straps.
All the keys are real Ivory and have been fully checked, serviced and polished as can be seen. NO Chips, No Wear!
The playing touch is medium and has a modern feel.
The Wrest Plank or Pin Block as it is also know, is structurally sound, tuning is stable and the soundboard has been inspected as can be seen in the picture whilst the back was panel was being recovered. The iron frame is also perfect, No Cracks.
The piano is tuned to concert pitch, but I will fully check the tuning before delivery! All good stable pianos travel well if handled correctly and I never use the excuse that it will need instant re-tuning after delivery. If a piano arrives out of tune, then it is either a bad one or was never in tune before it was moved!!
In summing up, this 88 note 7 1/4 octave piano would not only suit a beginner, but it would also suit a pianist who prefers a sharper tone.
I'm sure from these pictures and videos that this piano is of high quality and will give you many years of trouble free playing and pleasure.

WARNING! Don't waste money and time on a piano that has not been tuned for years! There is often a very good reason for this! The piano may be scrap or goes out of tune quickly!
