Kawai Howard Piano For Sale

July 18th, 2019

Originally manufactured by Kawai, in Japan, in 1968. This was a decade before the wide acceptance and dominance of Kawai and Yamaha in the U.S. piano market. For this  model 550, Kawai licensed the Howard name for marketing through U.S. Baldwin dealers. It is vintage Kawai throughout.

Available in September 2019

Currently the piano is in the shop for renovation.  The piano is receiving these services and upgrades:

  • Full  restringing
    • Mapes “International Gold” piano wire
    • Mapes custom copper wound bass strings
    • New nickel plated tuning pins
  • New hammers
    • Premium Weickert Felt hammers from Ronsen Piano Hammers
  • New knuckles from Abel
  • Concert quality tuning and regulation
  • Case touch up and polishing

This piano will be ready for a new owner in September and will please discriminating, advanced pianists.   At 5′ 8″ in length, the piano is larger than Kawai’s current model  GL-30 (5′ 5″) and smaller than the GL-40 (5′ 11″) .   For those current models, pricing is in the range of $20,000 to $30,000.  We will be able to offer this reconditioned Kawai for just $8,000.    Once our work is complete, we invite you to compare it to new pianos in it’s class!
