Restored Piano Maui - 2006

Purchased a 5' 8" Knabe Grand Piano with an Ampico B Player from Chris and Tish Brubeck in Wilton, CT on July 9, 2002. The piano, serial #107437, was built in 1929. The Art Case is a "Florentine" Model which is some combination of Louis XVI & Italian. Cost = $2755.00

Finders Fee paid to Charles at Pianos and More. Cost = $240.00

Piano moved down flight of stairs to the Warehouse by Brian Tilford at Tilford Piano Movers.  Excellent Job. For a piano moved anywhere on the East Coast, get a hold of Brian. Cost = $275.00

Piano Crated on July 27, 2002 by Tom Twigg at Goetjen, John F. and Sons Moving and Storage in Wilton, CT. Tom did a superior job of crating, therefore the piano arrived on Maui in perfect condition. Cost = $825.00

John and Loretta at Goetjen, John F. and Sons Inc. took on the job of warehousing and baby-sitting the piano for me. Thank You!!  Crated Piano weighted in at 1050 Lbs. Cost = $160.00
