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 getting 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.

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.

Model K10 from late 1970s in beautiful walnut casework. Photo doesn't do it justice as the grain has a distinctive tiger stripe when viewed at certain angles, an effect created by rays in the grain. Will post a better photo soon. Currently being given a thorough clean, renovation and regulation. Should be ready by the end of the month.

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!
