Thanks for your question!
Kimball was one of the best known American piano companies for many years. They closed down in the 1990’s after some troubled years. Their instruments were usually pretty average in quality with those built near the end of their time considered fair.
In considering the maker, size, age, described “excellent” condition and depreciation in the used market, I would recommend a selling range today of approximately $3,200-$3,800 in a private sale. Best wishes!
Please select a rating before leaving—I aim for five stars. Thanks!
