Dale Forty - Click picture to enlarge Dale Forty.
Just back in workshop after a long season on hire. Handsome old style upright piano with a nice action and tone. Overstrung with a restored underdamped action makes this an ideal starter piano where the older more traditional look is going to fit the room better than a modern piano. Older pianos like this are most at home in older draughtier homes, they don't like to be too warm but given the right environment they will go on for a very long time.
£680 or rent £30 a month incl stool and tunings
Barrett & Robinson - Click picture to enlarge Barrett & Robinson.
Made in North London c1970s. This is a great starter piano if space is restricted with its 6 Octave keyboard it is 118cm wide and 102cm tall. It has just come back into the shop having been helping a new generation get started on their piano playing journey, they have now moved onto a larger full size model, this lovely little piano would suit a beginner and would be the ideal first piano to rent for a small child. As they progress they will need the full size keyboard but this will usually take at least a year or two, giving you time to plan for the full size instrument!

Danemann - Click picture to enlarge Danemann.
An excellent ex school model in large oak case. Tough resilient construction makes these ideal for playrooms, classrooms and public places easy to manuvour within a room due to large wheels and a wide base. Great instruments too, good for teaching on as well as learning. Although this one has been used a lot it still has plenty of life left in it.
£790 or rent £35 a month incl stool and tunings
Eavestaff - Click picture to enlarge Eavestaff.
Made in England c1977. This is one of the last of the so called Mini pianos from Eavestaff, Some of the early models were revolutionary in their design ideas although widely slated for their poor musical qualities and lack of foresight for future maintenance. However, they persevered and after several incarnations they eventually came up with this model. Although not particularly "Mini" they are still quite small but sound and play like much bigger pianos. Action parts are much more conventional so spares are easy to obtain and access for future repairs is a lot simpler. Great styling too. Available to buy or rent.
£850 or Rent £40 a month incl.Stool and all tunings
