Ever Wonder HOW Old IS MY PIANO? Two of the most asked questions are "how old is my piano" and "does it need tuning". Here's your chance to find out the age of your piano. We need the serial number and the name of your piano. Also tell us if your piano is an upright or a grand. The name is on the front of your piano or inside. Check the spelling and send us the full name. If there are two names on your piano, please state both names and separate them with a comma. The serial number is almost always inside.
Before opening the top always check all hinges on your piano's top and make sure all of them have a hinge pin, plus make sure all hinges are screwed on. In upright pianos if a pin is missing remove the other hinge pins then remove the top. With grands you can just fold back the part of the top that is over the music rack. And of course check hinges for missing pins. NEVER open the top of any piano if hinge pins are missing. Of course if all hinge pins are in place simply lift up the top.
Now look on or around the cast iron plate inside your piano for a serial number. Some grand pianos have the number on the wood sound board under the strings. In rare cases it may be stamped on the underside. A few uprights will have the number stamped on the back of the instrument. If it is against a wall, pull it away from the wall to see the back. Some old pianos may not have a name on or in them. In this case forget it. Without the name I can not find the age. Likewise without a serial number I can not give the answer to "how old is my piano". Email us if you need any help.
