This is a used Ibach piano, which has a new black high-gloss lacquer. The piano has a typical German, warm sound. Despite being a compact piano, it has a pleasantly warm sound with full, deep bass.
Ibach was a family business with a rich history and tradition. The Ibach factory was founded in 1798 in Beyenburg (near Düsseldorf) and in 1834 the name Ibach was changed to Rud. Ibach Sohn because Carl Rudolf Ibach became co-owner of the factory.
In its history, Ibach has always been an innovative and high-quality company. At the beginning of the 20th century, Ibach, with its factories in Berlin, Schwelm and Barmen, was at the absolute top of piano construction. After surviving difficult times, the family business revived in the 60s and 70s. During this period Ibach made instruments of absolute world class.
Since Rolf Ibach entered into a joint venture with Daewoo in South Korea in 1991, the quality of the instruments has deteriorated and production numbers have fallen sharply. In December 2007 Ibach ceased to exist.
