Used Knabe WKV118R Upright Piano
WM Knabe was established by the partnership of Wilhelm Knabe and Henry Gaehle in the middle of the nineteenth century. The duo’s primary goal was to manufacture the best pianos in the world. The WM Knabe company became quite famous for their square and grand pianos, which received a multitude of awards and distinctions. The legacy of Wilhelm Knabe and Henry Gaehle has been carried on by the Samick Music Coporation’s WM Knabe line.
The WM Knabe WKV118R is a 46.5” upright piano built in Indonesia by Samick. For a little over 10 years, Knabe’s piano line has been divided into three levels: Baltimore (WV models), Academy (WMV models) and Concert (WKV models). The WKV118R is a professional tier instrument that is part of WM Knabe’s Concert series.
This particular WKV118R is finished in a beautiful satin walnut and features the impressively high-quality components and materials that the WKV Concert line is known for. Canadian solid spruce tapered soundboards, German made Roslau music wire, hand-notched maple-capped bridges, individually-voiced double-coated hammers, and 15-ply maple pin blocks are just some of the many amazing specs and features on these truly premium pianos.
This WKV118R would be an excellent musical choice for an experienced hobbyist or dedicated student that is seeking a wonderful instrument with the utmost musical potential. From its ultra responsive touch to its rewarding, expressive tone, this Knabe piano convincingly checks off every box for even the most discerning players.
