One of our favorite antique pianos, Wing & Son, was founded in 1868 by Luman B. Wing in New York. Luman B. Wing was the main partner in the firm of Doane, Wing & Cushing. Luman B. Wing died in 1873 and was succeeded by his son, Frank L. Wing and then by his son R. Delano Wing in 1905. They were famous for their high quality pianos and the unique 5 pedal design, which added a “rinky tink” & “mandolin” type sound accessory on uprights. They sold many pianos through mail order and were very successful during their history.
*This particular piano has had a QRS Pianomation player system added noted by the additional compact disc drive unit on the front of the piano.
