Still going strong today, Kawai pianos are celebrating their 90th year and produce a huge range of instruments from small keyboards to concert grands and the Boston range of pianos for the worlds best know piano makers Steinway & Sons.

Cramer - Click picture to enlarge Cramer.
Made in England c1920s this was a very good quality instrument when it was made, with its full cast iron frame and high end quality underdamped action this would keep up with even the most demanding pianists. However that was nearly a 100 years ago and with perhaps the exception of fine wines and oak trees I can't think of anything that improves over that length of time without major repairs, renovations and rebuilds. Old pianos like this cost thousands of pounds to rebuild properly and this cost is very difficult to justify with better younger modern instruments being available for much less than the cost of rebuilding an old one. This Cramer is like an ageing Olympian, looking a bit wrinkled in places and has a few creaks and clicks that weren't there in its prime... but it would still run rings around most other pianos the same age. As a piano it would make an ideal starter instrument or would suit a player who isn't going to be too demanding. It has several cosmetic blemishes and like most pianos of this age it is big 127 high 155cm wide and 64cm deep. Available soon to buy or rent.
