Diapason 17-E Baby Grand, $3500
I need to let my lovely Diapason Baby Grand Piano. It is in very good condition, bought from Sherman Clay San Francisco. certificate is available. All functions work ok, the sound is beautiful. But it is not played for about 1 year.
Diapason was manufactured by Kawai in Japan but licensed out and rebranded 'Diapason'. Model 170-E designed by the piano Guru, Haitawa Ohhashi, high grate piano. The quality should be very good as Kawai make very high quality pianos. Kawai even make the Boston line of pianos on behalf of Steinway & Sons.
Buying a Diapason can be a good way of getting a quality used Japanese piano without paying the higher price of a Yamaha.
