I have been offered a Spaethe upright piano, I've been advised its overstrung and underdamper. Dates from 1909.
Just wondering if this is a good maker? We currently have an old J R Walter. My son is working toward grade 2 and is ready to move to a better model. Any advice re Spaethe would be appreciated as you can tell I'm somewhat of a novice!
