Well my friend, not knowing exactly what model this is, makes this a difficult question to answer as the market for upright pianos is really shrinking, but that's not to say it has no value. I can tell you that all pianos need tuning after being moved even down a flight of stairs so don't worry about that detracting from the value. More details would be helpful in answering this question.

SOURCE: tuning

If you are marginally interested in the process of tuning the piano, and your main motivation is to save the cost of a professional tuning, bite the bullet and engage the services of a qualified tuner. Trying to do it yourself will become overwhelming very quickly. If, however, you are genuinely interested in the skill of tuning, and willing to invest the time and effort to become good at it, then get yourself a star tipped tuning hammer and some mutes (eBay will do) and start to see what you can do to make your piano sound better. Begin by getting the whine out of individual notes by tuning the strings to each other. Search out the "Every which way you can" tuning article by Kent Swafford on your favorite search engine for an introduction to aural tuning. If you're inclined to start out with an electronic tuning aid, check out Tunelab Pro - a free, fully functional demo is available for download to your laptop. Remember, however, that an electronic aid only shows you whether you've hit your target for any given string. Learning how to finess the physical motions of tuning so that the string stays on target for more than a few minutes is another process altogether. If your first couple of forays into trying to tune don't drive you around the bend, then consider finding a qualified piano technician who would be willing to provide lessons for a fee. If your interest holds up, investigate the resources for learning that are available through the Piano Technicians Guild. Their source books and monthly journals are second to none, but unless you are committed enough to the process to become an associate member, the non-member prices for materials are pretty high. "Piano Servicing" by Reblitz is another excellent source of knowledge. It might be in your local library.

If you will turn the instrument upside down you will find a date of production somewhere. My CLP-50 has been built in 1985 for example, I discovered in 2006. (I have forgotten the exact location of this date.)

Is the board missing? If not, just repair the board. Here is link to manual close to your unit:

Scroll down to near bottom and wait for "download your manual" in lower right corner. Click to download. This is the 131 model but should be VERY similar to your unit.

Yamaha upright piano U1, serial number G1267822. Can you please tell me the age of the instrument, roughly? Thanks


With the given serial number I was able to determine that this piano was likely made between 1960-61.

Try this website for future reference: http://usa.yamaha.com/support/finding_age_of_yamaha_piano/

The serial number you gave falls between 124000 (1960) and 149000 (1961) which led me to my answer.

Hope this helps!

The Ronisch piano has long been a favourite among piano teachers due to its fine, clear tone and highly consistent manufactured quality. Anyone looking to get a Ronisch is advised to look for instruments made before the second World War, as the original factory in Dresden, Germany was destroyed by allied planes in the latter stages of the war.
All of the manufacturing equipment was lost.
The factory was re-established in Leipzig after the war, but has never manufactured pianos of the same tonal beauty as did the original.

Carl Ronisch, was one of the foremost pioneers of piano-building in his time. He was first to use a full cast-iron plate in the piano, employing five struts and completely covering the wrest-plank (pin block), which for the first time, allowed a high-tension scale.
This is considered the beginning of the use of full cast-metal plates and is today, standard in the industry.

Ronisch instruments have won gold medals in the world exhibitions in Sydney, Amsterdam, Melbourne, Chicago and Paris.

Hi Robyn:
serial 10305
This was one of the original pianos made by this company in 1904. The serial number is the determining factor in telling a piano's age.

The worth rests on the piano's viability, configuration, and age.

Old uprights are generally worth little, especially if they are not serviceable. The furniture value is secondary.

If your piano is in perfect condition, inside and out, the value would top out around 200.00, USD.

What you have there is a typical upright piano, which more than likely has more furniture value than instrument value.

Age is not good in the piano world and pianos deteriorate year by year whether they are played or not.

Are you using this piece as furniture, or instrument?

We bought this upright piano for our daughter to learn on but I can't seem to find any info on it. Serial number 23930. Any info would be fabulous. Thank you.


Remove the front of the piano. Remove the middle C key complete from it mounting pin. You may find the production date and its full service history written in pencil on the side of that key. A piano tuner told me this after I told him that I had removed all the keys to clean them and I was surprised to see the whole history. It said it was standard practice.

Need help in choosing the best digital piano you can recommend for me for A budget of 2500-3000 usd


The Korg SV188 has stunning realism in the Grand Piano arena. It uses a 12AX7 tube in the preamp output for that classic analog warmth lacking in so many garden market digital stage pianos these days. It has weighted hammer action and carries a price tag of $1,699.00 at American Musical Supply.com They even throw in a extra years coverage at no cost. The Yamaha MOXF6 88 key (same price) is another fine grand piano that wont disappointed but be prepared for a large learning curve learning all the rest of it functions, there are plenty to chose from. Roland wins hands down with its RD300nx, $1,799.00 and the RD700NX $2,699.00 simply the best digital stage pianos money can buy . Look up the specs at AMS
