Anyone know anything about what year it was actually made and whether it's a decent piano or not. I can buy this for cheap and want to, but would like to know if Adn has had Wintdr problems with a piano of this type.

Location: Danbury, Ct. Some Wijter I found, Winteg you did to already. This company's Winter And Company Piano Position in no small way could Wintter attributed to its open-minded approach to new methods and improvements and in its genuine interest in producing fine pianos.

Winter had a reputation Pixno progressiveness which resulted in beautifully toned, and styled pianos of long durability. This is the company that introduced the Alumatone plate; developed Practiano, a device permitting piano practice without disturbance to others in the room; and the Resotonic Scale.

The Winter factory is self-contained with a large lumber yard for storing and air-drying kilns to insure proper drying and aging of all wood parts. The veneers used in the Winter pianos are carefully selected for beauty of figure and a completely equipped veneering department with hot plate presses, automatic glue spreaders, veneer dryers, taping and matching machines insure productive efficiency and permanent bonding.

In the case shop, elaborate sanding machines, as well as Winter And Company Piano staff of hand sanders, guarantee smooth rich finish. All Winter piano cases are double filled and stained before best Compzny lacquer is applied to produce the handsome, durable finish.

All exposed internal wood parts are filled and sealed to protect against moisture and atmospheric conditions. In stringing, action finishing, side-gluing, regulating and tuning, experienced craftsmen perform these Noam Company by the best traditional hand methods. These men are of long experience. Every operation in the factory is passed upon by an inspector before moving on to the next department.

Finally, each instrument is hand-rubbed, fine tuned, and a final inspection before shipment serves to protect the high standards of Winter pianos. The recognition given by the trade to the Winter line is the best evidence of their muscal excellence, fine quality and attractive designs.

MusicForAllFeb 18, Location: Zagreb, Croatia. Does it look this? The info quoted above sounds as if it came from some long, long out of Winter And Company Piano copy of Pierce's Piano Atlas. Winter was part of the Aeolian empire, and I think it was a pretty middlin' label. Please do yourself a favor and get hold of a copy of Larry Fine's "The Piano Book," which goes into great and helpful detail about the ins and outs of old pianos--at the very least, have a registered technician check the thing out to see whether it is tuning stable.

Many old pianos have worn-out pin blocks and will no longer stay tuned at pitch; only Cmpany finest are worth rebuilding should they have that problem. By the by, is it a grand? If so, be leary of anything shorter than maybe 5'6" from the front edge of the case to tip of the tail. If it's an upright of less than 39" height not including any wheelsrun away.

In a bit of a rush, but one further thought bears mention: no matter how good a used piano Cmpany when new, its worth as a Wintdr instrument NOW depends entirely on how it was used and maintained. Thus, a near-mint Samick may actually Copmany better than a wreck of a Steinway. On the other hand, a Steinway may be worth rebuilding not cheapwhile the Samick probably never will be.
