A-class IBACH Piano (built in 1920)

An original A-class IBACH piano with which the current piano tuner has been in love for the past ten years. Bought by my parents for a mere song at the end of the 70's. It has since accompanied me while I wandered from Barendrecht to Belgium and Maastricht (college), Den Haag and back to Barendrecht again. Indestructable.
I even still have the original 'old-Dutch' user manual from the 20's.

The soundboard, the ivory keys, the felt hammer heads, the pulls, the action and the hand wound strings have been renovated/replaced since 1998.
