Kimball Grand Piano in Satin Black(SOLD)
This is one of the great, true American made Kimball grand piano. We always love to take a stroll through American history when looking at what we were once capable of in piano manufacturing. Solid construction and no expense spared in the building of this instrument. It has a rich lush sound with a powerful signature American bass section. The touch is on the medium light side and the tone is well balanced. This would make a fine piano for any level piano player. The deep rich tones will inspire music you never thought you had in you.
Kimball was possibly one of the most famous of all piano manufacturers in the history of piano making. William Wallace Kimball founded the W.W. Kimball Company in 1857. W.W. Kimball was an amazing entrepreneur and sales genius, and was able to promote his pianos on a nationwide basis that was very much ahead of its time. Prior to about 1880, most pianos sold by Kimball were actually built by other manufacturers such as Hallet & Davis, Emerson, Chickering, and H.P. Hale. By the turn-of-the-century, Kimball was manufacturing around 20,000 pianos annually! Kimball produced a handful of other brand names including Hinze, Dunbar, Whitney, and Harrison. In 1959, Kimball was sold to The Jasper American Corporation under the name of Kimball International. Kimball pianos were discontinued in 1996.
