Baldwin - Click picture to enlarge Baldwin.
Made in USA c1980. Very compact, ideal beginner piano due to small size and light touch weight but still full 7 octave keyboard. Attractive walnut casework. Available to buy or rent
Crowley - Click picture to enlarge Crowley.
Made in England c1920s. This is a type of piano we rarely sell these days as most of the examples we come across are very worn and tired but don't have enough potential value to justify the thousands of pounds it costs to rebuild them. However occasionally they are good enough and this is one that we have had in our rental fleet for many years getting several generations of players started before they commit to buying something. Crowley has been a very reliable instrument, holds his tuning well and looks very handsome, although Crowley has picked up several scratches, scrapes and dents over the years he is still in great shape and will go on for many more.
£690 or Rent £29 a month incl Stool and all Tunings

Danemann - Click picture to enlarge Danemann.
A School Danemann with a great future still ahead of it. This one dates from the 1950s which would normally mean it would be worn-out But this one has been extensively and expensively rebuilt within the last 20 years, not by us but by someone who believed it was worth investing in. It has been restrung, repolished and the action and keys have been meticulously restored. All this work would have cost far more than I believe it is worth but I am grateful they did it as it has saved a wonderful instrument.
Kemble - Click picture to enlarge Kemble.
Made in Milton Keynes This is the Concerto model from 2008 with factory fitted Silent system. Lovely dark walnut casework in excellent condition throughout. Supplied with brand new headphones but please bring your own headphones to try it out in our showroom whilst keeping your visit Covid safe.
Kawai - Click picture to enlarge Kawai.
Model BS-40 c1989. These were top of the range instruments in their day. Big and powerful giving as much dynamic range as a small grand but it also has warmth, subtlety and finesse when required. Fun and rewarding to play.
Yamaha - Click picture to enlarge Yamaha.
Model U1A c1986. Like most of our secondhand Yamahas this has come over to the UK as a renovated secondhand instrument and as always our supplier has done a superb job of making it defy its age. It is nearly 35 years old yet everything is like new, inside and out, top to bottom. Stood next to brand new pianos in the showroom it is easily mistaken as one of them. At half the price of the new Yamaha U1 I canít imagine a better way to spend that money you would normally spend on a season ticket to your office in London or that holiday you weren't allowed to take this summer!

Hupfeld - Click picture to enlarge Hupfeld.
Made in Germany c1980s. These were our best selling pianos of the 1980s we sold hundreds of them because they had a good quality feel and sounded superb and they were so much cheaper than their competitors. At the time the mahogany casework was also a very popular finish. These days mahogany isnít quite so popular but the piano is still fabulous. Available soon to buy or rent.
John Broadwood - Click picture to enlarge John Broadwood.
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!
