Anyway, to my eyes, it looked exactly like a Knight, it felt the same and sounded the same as one too. I was practising on it in a church. Nice enough piano actually, good solid upright. Apparently it was bequeathed to them.
So, my question, are Otto Bach pianos actually Knight pianos?

The was one thing I hated about them it was the pulley wheel for the practise pedal the cable had to be re-fed back on the wheels and the bottom door was held in with 4 poz screws

It looks like Otto Bach was a name used on some pianos from several factories, rather like Irmler, and perhaps Knight imported some pianos to South Africa, and the Otto Bach name was stamped on there? It sure is a dead ringer for a Knight I used to own.
could be wrong though.
Because of the varying origins of the name, it is not possible to date the pianos by their numbers.
