Challen (SOLD)


Recently Restored Challen Overstrung Upright Piano
A beautiful dark mahogany Art Deco style Challen, identical to the Challen used by the Beatles in many famous recordings. It has a third pedal, which when pressed converts the sound into a Harpsichord, an unusual feature to find on a piano. The tone is clear, soft, pure sounding, with even depth of tone throughout. The action is responsive and it is nice to play, for both beginner and professional. The original ivory keys are in perfect condition, the brass is refinished, and casing was recently French Polished. It is a nice compact size and fits into most spaces, with rounded edges and contours typical of its period, but hard to come buy today. We have tuned and regulated the piano and it is now ready to play. It looks and sounds great, and was the number 1 choice of piano for the Beatles.

Features: Cast Iron Frame, Internal Under-damping, Weighted Keys, Regulated Action, Tight Tuning Pins, Renewed Brass Works and Trimmings, Hand French Polished Cabinet, Cleaned and Buffed Keys, Fully Overhauled Pressure Blasted Internals, Regulated and Tuned to Concert Pitch. This piano is ideal for a beginner, intermediate, or advanced player.
