Thanks for your question. I need more information in order to formulate an appraisal. What is the serial number of the piano? When was it last tuned? Any cosmetic or mechanical condition issues?

Thanks for the information. I find with the serial number that your piano was built in 1984. Petite baby grands are those which fall under 5' in size. They have become quite popular because of their low price. Kimball is no longer in business today as their later pianos were not of the best quality. Considering your description of condition as well as comparable sales and the used piano market, I would recommend a selling price today of approximately $2,800-$3,400 in a private sale.
