You can not judge a piano by name alone the piano need to be looked at by a tuner before you part with any money, it is just like me asking a mechanic in the Nova Scotia is this Morris car in the UK worth buying I don’t know when it was made but the outside is in mint condition He or she probably has have never seen a Morris car or worked on one, I am sure you are aware of the things that can be wrong with a used car, well there are more moving parts in a piano than a car so get some to look at it


However, it sounds like an old straight strung not worth the trouble

I'm glad you've been warned not to be too hasty with this one, as Barrie says (if you haven't already) get a local tuner to examine it for you before you committ yourself. It does sound as though its quite old though.
