Chas f. Netzow upright piano Serial number 47686


I should write this out to save me keep typing it. Remove the front of the piano and the lid for the keyboard. Remove the middle C key completely. You may find the manufacture date and its full service history written in pencil on the side of the key.
Netzow Piano Co. Brand Name: Netzow Piano Co. Parent company: Netzow Piano Co. Location: Milwaukee, Wisconsin Serial Numbers Available: yes First date listed: 1904 Last date listed: 1931 Other brands:

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?

What was the year manufactured and value of Ernest Gabler Square Grand Piano, serial #6159?


Here is a good place to look for your piano by make & serial number.
There are times when your piano name or number is not listed. They can help you find the year your piano was manufactured in most cases. Since you have the name & serial they should be able to answer your question. About the value... they can't possible know without seeing the piano.

What is the estimated value of a milton upright piano serial number 51839


Milton Piano
From http://antiquepianoshop.com/online-museum/milton/ :
The Milton Piano Company was established in New York in 1892. In the early 20th Century they offered a full line of uprights, player pianos, and grand pianos, and they enjoyed a reputation of building very well made instruments. In the mid 1920s, Milton built a coveted new state-of-the-art factory on West 51st Street, New York City. There is some evidence that Brambach and Milton were somehow affiliated with one another, and their factories were located within blocks of each other. The Milton Piano Company built pianos until the late 1950s era.
From http://bluebookofpianos.com/agesm.htm#MILTON :
This name is a familiar one to the magical world generally. Milton pianos have been manufactured for many years and always with the care that produces most satisfactory results. The modern factories in which the Milton piano is produced are new, large structures located at 626-630 West 51st St., New York City. Milton pianos and player-pianos are thoroughly well-made, beautiful instruments, designed for a class of discriminating music lovers. They possess a tone at once powerful and sweet. They are pianos in which purchasers are assured good values and they are pianos that give exceptional satisfaction. Milton reproducing pianos are equally representative and popular.
All of which is great, but:
Be aware when dealing with antique pianos:
Many of the old (say, 1850 to 1940) pianos were made by companies that are no longer in business (failed, or bought out by a competitor), or companies that built the instrument under another name.
Pianos back then were not really mass-produced, they were hand crafted- and each manufacturer made their piano very differently, so:
Short Version: there will be parts that will work on only that *one* model of piano, so getting parts will be difficult if not impossible.
Long Version: Musical instrument craftsmen (craftspersons?) love to innovate, for a variety of reasons: they may find a new way, for instance, to connect the key to the hammer that strikes the corresponding note. It might be a better way to do it, or, more often, it was to come up with a cheaper way to do it.
The point I'm making is that your Struz Brothers piano will have parts that are totally different from, say, a piano made by either Krakauer Brothers, Doll, Jacob & Sons, or Mathushek & Son Piano Company (companies that started around the same time as Sturz Brothers). The parts may vary from one year to the next, or even one model to another.
So, if your Sturz Brothers piano needs a key replaced, or the harp has bent under pressure, the soundboard is cracked, or any number of things that can plague an old instrument, you'll need to either
A) find someone that is willing to sell parts from a similar model (if they're parting it out, it has more problems than yours does), OR
B) you'll need to have the part manufactured from scratch by craftsmen that specialize is rejuvenating old pianos. This will be expensive far, far beyond what the piano is worth- and these craftsmen live very well, BTW...
Last Caveat: Upright models sell for much less (and the term "Upright Grand" was just an advertising phrase, there is no such animal.) Uprights (spinets particularly) sound very... tinny, is the best description I can think of. Tinny like the toy piano your granma gave you when you were five- remember, the black keys were painted on? Tinny like that.
So, unless the piano is a Steinway & Sons, a B?sendorfer, or a Fazioli, don't count on huge offers for your instrument. And if it came to you from your great-aunt Tilly and you can't bear to part with it, that's great, I understand sentimental value. Just know that this will cost a great deal to bring to playing condition.
I'm often told "But the keys all work, the pedals are still tight, and the tuner told me that it's not a bad piano!" All this is true. But please remember that professional buyers know all of these potential pitfalls won't offer much, and the guy on Craigslist that needs to replace the piano for Great-Aunt Tilly can't afford much.
Good luck!

Im trying to find out the year of my piano and possibly a value its in excellent condition


First, we'll need the make and, if possible, the model of the instrument.

But be aware when dealing with antique pianos:
Many of the old (say, 1900 to 1940) pianos were made by
a) companies that are no longer in business
b) companies that were bought out by a competitor
c) companies that built the instrument under another name.
They were also not real mass-produced, so getting parts will be difficult if not impossible.
People that buy pianos know these things, and will make an offer accordingly.
Additionally, upright models seem to sell for much less (and the term "Upright Grand" was just an advertising phrase.
So, unless the piano is a Steinway & Sons, a Bosendorfer, or a Fazioli, don't count on huge offers for your instrument.

I have a Casio digital piano and some keys stopped working after my daughter finished "cleaning" the piano. I'm thinking maybe a fuse needs to be replaced?? Some keys plays and some do not. Any


Old reply so hopefully it's fixed. Dust or hair can get through the gaps and land on or near the contacts of the electronic key sensors. To be on the safe side (rather than doing a diy) take it in to the technicians. They'll have it fixed in a jiffy

My Casio Px 330 keyboard is about 1.5 years old. After the instrument has been played for 20 minutes or so, one note (D above middle C) sounds very loud regardless of how hard it is struck. The problem...


This is a problem with one of the two contacts for that key. The contacts close at different times as the key is depressed and the time it takes between is measured as velocity which is used to control the loudness as in a regular piano. The contacts are conductive rubber pills. After a lot of dis-assembly you can clean them with 99% isoprphyl alcohol and Q Tips. Clean both the pills and the circuit traces on the board they are pressed against. Be very careful of the ribbon cables between the halves of the case.

How to adjust the metronome on casio privia


You hold down the function key/button and then use the PIANO keys with the "tempo" shown above them.
In that section of the keyboard, the C# key raises the tempo and the C key lowers it. You can also use the numbered keys in that section to dial up a particular value. Hold function down and strike the numbers you want then release the function key/button

I don't believe there is an adjustment for loudness of the metronome other than the overall loudness of the piano..
