Piano Sales.

Kemble Cambridge school model upright piano.

If your pianos are of an older style and of a lesser quality, they will doubtless have suffered with modern heating systems, causing timbers to dry out, making the tuning pins become loose, soundboards to crack and making economical repair impossible. If the piano is beyond viable repair then a new or nearly new piano is the obvious option. These use modern resin bonded glues and multi-laminate timbers so that the piano can better withstand the effects of central heating.

If this option seems to be more appropriate we would be delighted to offer you advice and guidance on suitable replacements.





Restoration.

Welmar 112 school model upright piano.

Do you already have a “modern” upright piano? If it is a Welmar, Knight or Danemann it was probably supplied it in the 1960’s or 1970’s. Most of these instruments will now be in need of an action and keyboard overhaul, including, re-facing or recovering the hammers, and re-regulating in order to extend their life by another 20 years or so. To replace a piano like this with a new piano of similar quality would cost in excess of £5,000, illustrating the sense in maintaining older examples of these makes.

Written reports giving details of the extent of work needed, and costs involved, can be arranged either at a tuning visit or by appointment.
