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!

Ronisch - Click picture to enlarge Ronisch.
Made in Germany c1905-1910. Looks much more impressive in real life than a photo can capture. Internals are in amazingly good condition too and very white unblemished original ivory key tops. We will be sympathetically restoring the action to replace the only parts showing signs of wear but the piano should be available by end of the summer.
Eavestaff - Click picture to enlarge Eavestaff.
Made in England c1977. This is one of the last of the so called Mini pianos from Eavestaff, Some of the early models were revolutionary in their design ideas although widely slated for their poor musical qualities and lack of foresight for future maintenance. However, they persevered and after several incarnations they came up with this model. Although not particularly "Mini" they are still quite small but sound and play like much bigger pianos. Great styling too. Currently in our workshop waiting to be thoroughly checked over and to receive the attention of our French polisher to remove as many of the scuffs and dents as possible. Available soon to buy or rent.

Model M5J Just arrived here. Made in Japan c1984. Very good condition throughout so should be through the workshops soon. More details and picture to follow.
Welmar - Click picture to enlarge Welmar.
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.


All prices include: VAT. Local delivery. First tuning and 1 year guarantee.
