The GOLD-plated piano -- used to perform Mark Ronson, Lady Gaga and Billy Porter’s Golden-Globe winning “Shallow” song -- is brand new and only used this one time!
The piano is a premium Asian piano... it's a Hardman 158, 5'3" baby grand with bench. This brand was the official piano of the Metropolitan Opera in NY in the early part of the 20th century. It has an elegant European look with spade legs and wide casters.
It has GERMAN felts for the hammers for a mellow, rich tone. The Hardman has a sostenuto pedal - a feature found only on high end pianos. The piano has a wonderfully light and fast action. The Hardman piano was the official piano in the White House during FDR's presidency.
This piano was donated to Gold Meets Golden, an annual event hosted by Nicole Kidman, Nadia Comaneci, and a variety of top Hollywood Celebrities and Professional and Olympic Athletes coming together to raise funds for sports-related causes. This year's charity was the Angel City Sports Foundation who provide needed equipment, coaching and other resources to young disabled children who have a dream of becoming future Paralympians.
