Conover & Cable spinet review

Small American spinet.

Thin, , flat bass sound. I can’t recommend the tone of the piano.

Some of the tone issues may be caused by problems in the strings, either nodules, or older strings. No problems on the bridge were noted.

The tone was not balanced.

Some sideways movement. Not recommended for advanced playing. Spinet actions aren’t as controlled as upright.

Spinet drop action, inferior to upright piano actions: shorter keys, extra leverage system redundant. And harder to repair.

I would not recommend buying the piano, nor doing extensive work to repair it.


These are my views are no substitute for a condition, and tone report from a well versed local piano tuner.
