We've recently inherited a 1930s Welmar upright overstrung piano (number: 18629). This piano is in need of some renovation (the middle scales are pretty honky tonk now). Head says get rid of it, heart says that it has been in the family a long time and was generally well looked after - tuned regularly though probably kept in too hot a room. The tone of the Welmar is superior to that of the Knight (but the Knight isn't bad).
So what should I do ... and if I don't keep the Welmar will it just be chopped up for firewood? Would renovating the Welmar be a waste of money?
Any views appreciated! Thanks
