Lagonda Piano Serial Numbers

Pianos also have other numbers printed on them such as part numbers and many other pianos do not have a serial number at all. Many pianos will have a 4, 5 or 6 digit serial number to identify the age of the piano. Using this number, along with the manufacturer, the age of the piano can sometimes be determined. The areas to look for these numbers vary from each company but here are some common places to look along with some photos.

Lagonda Piano Serial Numbers


3. Grand piano serial numbers are placed in many areas as the photos show. There are seven examples but your serial number placement could be in yet a different location and may require some searching.

Although a number of companies such as Steinway & Sons and Mason & Hamlin put out some of their finest work during this period, a large number of piano builders flooded the market with hastily assembled or badly engineered upright/vertical instruments to meet the high market demand. Well over 300 piano makers were in simultaneous operation within the United States alone. Due to this, hundreds of thousands of mass-produced upright pianos were built, flooding the market. Even if full rebuilds were completed (costing north of $10,000.00) the result of restoring these old pianos would not be more than average. Churned out of factories in exceedingly high numbers, the average upright was never a concert-level piano, to begin with.

Widely known pianos and players are made and marketed by: the Jesse French & Sons Piano Co., New Castle, Ind., who are the proprietors and exclusive factors for the same.

Antique piano values can range from one to the next, depending on a number of factors such as model, period, and model year. A piano restoration and tuning can easily cost you more than $2,500. If you want to buy a musical instrument that can be used by a serious pianist, you can expect to pay quite a bit of money for a new one. The grand and upright sizes are two of the most common styles of antique pianos. The value of a piano that is older than a century will increase. Most pianos will be able to be dated using their serial numbers within a few years. The death sentence for an antique piano is not to be removed. When it comes to the quality or age of the piano, as well as the degree of restoration, piano restorations can sometimes have a price increase. It is possible that piano values will not be high, and that bringing them back to life will be prohibitively expensive.

The brand name and serial number of the instrument can be found near the soundboard or strings of most pianos. The brand name and serial number of an upright piano are usually located inside the instrument, near the top of the strings.

The square grand piano was introduced in the 1760s, and its design helped to reduce the amount of space required. During World War II, a technique for modernizing old upright pianos was to remove panels and replace them with mirrors to give them a more modern appearance. Before you can begin to value a piano, you must first identify who made it and when it was made. A serial number can tell you whether or not a piano is worth anything. The piano, on the other hand, is frequently worth more than its price. Etsy is a great place to look for piano accessories such as stools and piano benches, as well as smaller pieces.
