Behr Bros. Historical Grand Piano
Built in the late 1880’s, this Behr Bros. Grand Piano ser. #15560 features a beautiful walnut cabinet with uniquely carved legs and pedal lyre.
When we say historical – we don’t just mean old! This piano was purchased originally by Mr. John Thompson, owner of the Glenn Levin Estate during the Civil War. After the original square grand piano was used as a field hospital operating table and ruined, this Behr Brothers Grand was purchased as a replacement. It was eventually taken in by Shelby Singleton, owner of Sun Records in the late 60’s and producer of songs such as “Harper Valley PTA” and the “Million Dollar Quartet”, with Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis and Johnny Cash.
Rebuilt approximately 25 years ago, this 130 year old instrument has a extremely rich tone overall, especially in the bass section, and holds its tuning very well.
The keys are grade “A” ivory and are in excellent condition. No loose bridge pins or caps – no loose ribs.
You can’t miss out on an opportunity like this – come in to see it for yourself and quite literally “tickle the ivories”.
Dimensions: 6’9″ L x 57″ W
