We were looking to purchase a Baby Grand Piano late last year but didn’t have any idea what we should expect to pay.
After finding this site, we began by cross referencing all the pianos we were looking at with the valuation calculators.
Here are the TOP FIVE places to locate the serial number of your BABY GRAND or GRAND piano: (See this link for a detailed picture of where to look) Note: You may have to remove the (1) music desk first and then (2) gently clean out any dust from your piano's plate [using a soft dry cloth vacuum hose] before these numbers can be found. Located on the right, this acts as a 'bridge' to the 'beams' of the cast iron plate.
Serial number locations are found: 1) On the piano’s cast iron plate, near the tuning pins, as you face the keys. 3) On the piano's soundboard (see link above for a diagram).
The serial number on YAMAHA VERTICAL PIANOS is stamped on the gold colored plate on the inside of the piano as illustrated in the vertical piano picture.
The piano trios of Haydn are dominated by the piano part.
The violin only plays the melody a certain amount of the time, and is often doubled by the piano when it does.
The serial number can be seen by opening the toplid of the piano and looking inside.
(Click here to enlarge the image at right.), the piano was manufactured in Jakarta, Indonesia.
