Established in 1884, Bush and Gerts became known for their intricate and detailed woodwork. The company began in Chicago, but by the mid 1920s their pianos were being built by the Haddorff Piano Company in Rockford, IL. There are a number of Bush and Gerts still available today, demonstrating the high quality of craftsmanship utilized to build each instrument.
This antique piano was built around 1900 and is in excellent condition with only some minor cosmetic issues (some of the keys are lightly chipped and there is some cracking on one of the sides). From the outside, the piano looks to be in great working order. The wood finish has been restored which makes this antique piano look beautiful - a wonderful piece of furniture!
Some experts claim that antique pianos have a much richer sound compared to contemporary instruments. I am not exactly sure how or why, but I have also found antique pianos to have a much fuller sound. Not only is the sound noticeably better, but the woodwork can be more elaborate at times. Antique pianos have their own set of problems though - requiring more attention to cosmetic detail, as well as frequent tuning in order to maintain a true pitch.
The seller is asking for $500. (Update: this piano is sold). Jessica's Piano Studio simply provides a platform for people to purchase, sell, or rent instruments. The purchaser and seller take full responsibility for the condition and quality of the instrument.
