Gaveau Duo-Art electric grand, rebuilt, situated in S W France.

Gabriel Gaveau Duo-Art grand, electric-only, fully rebuilt. The instrument is situated near St Girons in the Ariege department in South-west France.

To quote the owner:

“The piano woodwork and inside was completely restored to “as new” condition in 2012 (including changing strings, hammers, felts, etc.) and the Duo Art mechanism was also restored to “as factory” condition in 2012 with a complete service and adjustment made by a specialist in September 2016.

 

I chose this piano because of its “touch” and “expressive sound quality” as I am an amateur pianist.    Having the pianola part is also a very good feature.    Because it is a grand piano, the pianola part does not make the piano much bigger than a standard grand piano.

 

Included in the sale are approximately 100 piano rolls of which around 30 are Duo Art rolls and the others are standard 88 note rolls of varying styles (mainly classical, “variety” and some jazz and ragtime).”
