Model 118. A very elegant looking instrument in black gloss finish, chromed hinges & pedals. Taller than the 110 giving it longer strings and a larger soundboard to produce a richer, fuller sound. Very good new instruments for the price. Also Available in White, Walnut and Mahogany finishes.
|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!

This is a very well made piano, rarely seen in the UK but made in 1985 in Hamamatsu Japan where all the best Japanese pianos are made, both Yamaha & Kawai are based there. In a beautiful satin walnut case this model 121 is lovely to play with a big sound and an action that feels just like its better known Japanese neighbours but because the maker is unknown here it is a fraction of the price.
From South Korea c2003. Model SU121SP in Natural Oak. This is the SP (Special) variant of the already excellent SU121 range, which means it has the best quality felts and strings producing a lovely warm tone and very responsive action. The casework and insides are all in superb condition and looks brand new now that it has been through our workshop for a thorough service, tune and clean.
Model U1A Made in Hamamatsu Japan c 1986. One of our latest arrivals and like all our secondhand U range Yamahas it is in as new condition inside and out, with huge savings on the price of a new U range Yamaha it is not surprising that these are our best selling pianos.
Model BS-40 c1989. this is a big powerful instrument which gives as much dynamic range as a small grand and also has warmth, subtlety and finesse when required. Fun and rewarding to play.
Model U3A Made in Japan c1987. Another fabulous new arrival at the shop. Bigger than the U1ís it has loads of power as well as finesse. As new condition inside and out.
Model U30A (U3) Made in Japan c1992. Another new arrival in our shop. Big, powerful, wonderful. Immaculate condition. Hard working pianos ready for anything from the serious players practicing for hours each day to the beginner with big ambitions this piano will give years of enjoyment.
In our workshops
Made in Canada c1980. More details to follow soon. Available to buy or rent soon
Model 108 in very dark mahogany with a high gloss finish. Sold by us new in 2002 and maintained regularly. Available very soon to buy or rent as soon as it has had a thorough service and a tune.
School model in light oak casework. Very good condition from c1970s. Originally fitted with large school wheels but now has ordinary piano wheels which brings its height and depth into line with more standard domestic models. Great value for money, available to buy or rent very soon
School model from 1964. Light oak case with lots of knocks and scuffs but surprisingly clear of graffiti, which means it must have spent its life in a lower school ( or a posh school). I'm not sure what to do with this one but if anyone is interested please make yourselves known to me, I can let it go very cheap but it has been played a lot and is too worn out to have much use as a fine instrument that it once was but could still go on for years as it is if its only used for very basic musical entertainment.

Made in UK c1930s, this cute little piano with its 6 octave keyboard has attracted a lot of attention due to its beautiful cabinet. I donít often buy old pre 1950s pianos for renovations as so many are looking too old fashioned and scruffy. However this one is a definite exception. Because it has only a 6 octave range it is unusually small but the proportions are right so it just looks like it hasnít grow up into a real full size piano yet. Ideal if space is tight but not ideal if you need a full keyboard on your piano. Nearly ready, should be out of the workshop this week.
All prices include: VAT. Local delivery. First tuning and 1 year guarantee.
