Thanks for your question. Welcome to JustAnswer, it will be my pleasure to help you. My name is***** can work on this for you now with a little more information.

The maker's records show that your piano was built in 1936. What is the full height of your piano measured from the floor to the top of the closed top lid please?

Has your piano been regularly tuned and maintained?

Have any of the internal mechanics been replaced or restored over the years or is it all still as originally built?
