Zender - Click picture to enlarge Zender.
Made in UK c1970s. Very small 6 octave piano in a high gloss mahogany case. Just 114 cm wide and 100cm tall. Available to buy or rent. Would make an excellent first piano but more advanced players are going to need more notes!
£490 or Rent £25 a month
Berry - Click picture to enlarge Berry.
English c1962 . A charming little piano with a 6 octave keyboard. Surprisingly lively sound and responsive action. Ideal as a starter piano, more advanced players will want a full keyboard but you can rent for a few months to get you started then upgrade to a bigger piano when you need all the notes. For some students that might be a matter of just a few months but for most it would normally take a couple of years if starting from scratch.
£670 or Rent £30 a month

Eavestaff - Click picture to enlarge Eavestaff.
Made in England c1965. This is one of the last of the so called Mini pianos from Eavestaff, Some of the early models were revolutionary in their design although widely slated for their poor musical qualities and lack of foresight for future maintenance. However, they persevered and after several incarnations they eventually came up with this model. Although not particularly "Mini" they are still quite small but sound and play like much bigger pianos. Action parts are much more conventional so spares are easy to obtain and access for future repairs is a lot simpler. Great styling too. Available to buy or rent.
£850 or Rent £40 a month incl.Stool and all tunings
Hupfeld - Click picture to enlarge Hupfeld.
Made in Germany c1985-90ish. We sold a lot of these pianos back then, they have a great sound that is warm and powerful and the action plays very nicely. However the casework is looking a bit dated and the mahogany colour has faded in a few obvious places. This is all reflected in the price so you can have this very nice instrument to buy or rent for a lot less than usual.
£890 or Rent £39 a month
Rieger Kloss - Click picture to enlarge Rieger Kloss.
Made in an old Petrof factory c1995 in the Czech Republic. This is an excellent little instrument, Ideal for those first few years and grades but more advanced players will probably want a bigger, louder piano. It has a lovely warm tone and is available to buy or rent. Fitted with third (practice or mute) pedal, very useful when you want to keep playing but the rest of the household have had enough!
£960 or Rent £45 a month incl stool and tunings

Welmar - Click picture to enlarge Welmar.
C1963 Model A2 in mahogany casework. A lovely example of this top notch British piano. Just arrived in our workshop. From the condition of its casework it has obviously been cherished by its previous owner, who informed me had had it from new. We will be giving it a thorough assessment, service, tune and with only minor renovation necessary will have this one ready for a new home very soon.

Gors & Kallmann - Click picture to enlarge Gors & Kallmann.
Built c1980. Fabulous sounding instrument with a precision action that is a joy to play. Not the most fashionable looking piece of furniture but the quality of instrument at this low price more than makes up for its dated looks. Hopefully he could be considered retro in appearance but thatís too subjective for me to say!
Kawai - Click picture to enlarge Kawai.
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.

Made in Japan this U3X model from 1987 is a fine example. This is the upgraded version of the already excellent U3 with better hammer felts, a curved bass bridge and better tuning stability from its strong X pattern bracing in the back. Various other design features make this an instrument that is a joy to play (and listen to!)

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!
