Ivers & Pond 1937 Swing Era Grand
When my wife and I and our two toddlers arrived in the USA from England almost twenty years ago, we had little money left over to purchase luxuries, and were nearly in tears at having to leave our piano permanently in England due to the cost of shipping it. Despite having no cash left, we saw this dusty old thing with bad varnish in the corner at Harry Day pianos in Atlanta calling to us one day while trying all kinds of uprights in our meagre budget. It took just one note to fall in love with this pre-war, swing-era original Grand, and we just had to have it no matter what the cost. It’s gorgeous, lush sound has filled our house with love, sorrow, and inspiration every day since. I now travel coast to coast regularly but have only just got around to sampling it so i can take it, and the love it’s given us, with me everywhere I go (I even have it loaded into onto my iPhone DAW in case I get a spark of inspiration in the supermarket!).
