Model 110 in black gloss casework. Traditional styling with legs under the keyboard but the chrome metal hinges and castors give it that modern twist.

Made in The Pearl River factory in Guangzhou China, the largest piano factory in the world, making excellent pianos for some of the worlds top piano brands.

Model RS122. From their Superior range. In stock in black with chrome fittings. Very good to play and itís rich deep tone gives a warm all consuming feeling that makes it very easy to loose yourself in your playing for hours. We have sold more of this model since itís launch 2 years ago than we have the ubiquitous secondhand U range of Yamaha, which is usually the highest seller by a long way. The excellent design and build quality of these Pearl River factory pianos is becoming very difficult to ignore. The Ritmuller name does not have the same pedigree and heritage of some other makes like Yamaha and Kawai who can trace their piano making credentials back generations but Pearl River have been investing very heavily and developing their ideas and designs relentlessly for the past 40 years. It is only a matter of time before we see their pianos on our concert stages and getting their brands into the public eye. The quality is definitely comparable to better known makes but the prices of the Ritmuller range are currently a lot less. Like Yamaha used to be back in the 70s and 80s when they were much cheaper than the mainstream rivals, now Yamaha are the mainstream and Ritmuller Pianos are setting new standards selling high specification instruments at entry level prices. All prices set to increase by at least £200 by next shipment due to increased world container shipping price rises. Don't delay, come and try them all now.

From their newly created top of the range Premium line featuring improvements to many aspects of the material specifications of their already excellent Superior line.

Danemann - Click picture to enlarge Danemann.
Built for school life c1970. These are fabulous quality instruments, unfortunately most of these pianos have lived their lives in schools are now too worn out or bashed about to be viable instruments. However, Occasionally we find them with lots left to offer like this one. It is a bit scruffy and scuffed on the outside but inside it is all still working really nicely and will be fun to play for years to come. If you remember your school days with affection then this could be just the piano for you, maybe not as a centre piece in your living room but it would be ideal in a Childs playroom or studio. Available to buy or rent

Finlandia Model made c1980 in light oak casework. These were made in a very modern factory just outside Helsinki Finland and sold in good quantities until their demise in the 1990s. They were popular because they were good and cheap. Made super efficiently by producing just one size of piano, 1 frame, 1 action, 1 keyboard, Different case styles and colours but basically one piano. Very unusual even to this day. They used good quality parts including UK made actions and keyboards and most, like this one are still playing well today.

Knight - Click picture to enlarge Knight.
Made in Loughton Essex c1975. This is the K6 Exotic model with 3 pedals. Previous owner had it from new and it was obviously well loved and cared for. Original factory label on the back is still attached says finish is Rosewood OPM I believe OPM stands for open pore mahogany so I presume the rosewood was the colour of the stain applied to the mahogany But Whatever the actual veneer used it looks lovely, if it is mahogany it isn't straight grain cut veneer but a more interesting quarter sawn cut. Plays beautifully with a rich warm tone.

Model 107 from one of Europes most famous and enduring makers. Made in Langlau West Germany in 1976 this is one of their smaller models but it doesn't sound small! Rich and full bodied is how I would describe its tone, many smaller pianos shout at you but this sings beautifully. Looks fabulous too with an elegance to its tiny casework.

Model RS118RI c2010 gloss walnut with inlaid band around top and bottom panels. Very traditional looking and beautiful but with all the advantages of being recently made with modern seasoned timbers and synthetic glues to live happily in a modern home with modern heating. Unlike the actual traditional pianos from over 80 years ago with their dried out animal glue structures that have been seriously weakened by years of drying and shrinking in modern dry homes they were never designed for.

Model M1 from c1977 in black gloss casework. This is just like the one we restored and sold in a walnut case recently although this one has had a much fuller life! from a few feet away and in photos it looks good but the poor thing has collected a good set of scratches and dents which are very noticeable on closer inspection and are too extensive to cost effectively remove. This hasn't affected its insides and it would still be perfect for a recording studio or schools practice rooms or even a child's playroom where you don't want to worry about a new one or pristine one being exposed to potential damage from exuberant toddlers. This one still has a lot of fun and music in it, but I don't think it will win any beauty contests! Will be very cheap for an instrument of this quality and should be ready to try soon. Currently in our workshop if you wish to see it being renovated.

A Square piano from c1830s. I am keen to save this from the skip so please make yourself known to us if you can make a home for it!. A beautiful piece of piano history, it is what every Georgian home desired. Made by the best makers of the day. It still makes a noise but whether it can be tuned to any useful level is doubtful. Needs work cosmetically as one of the legs is not safe. Free to a good home!
