 Piano review:- Quality Used Pianos

Alongside our stock of new pianos, we also offer an exciting range of used pianos, both uprights and grands, which have all been carefully selected by us using our many years of experience. They are all within a certain age with a good structural condition to give you great value for money. Many are only a few years old and can be virtually like ne.

Once in the shop our used pianos are serviced, overhauled and repaired as needed so that they will provide many years of reliable service.

All this work requires a lot of skill and craftmanship as well as considerable training and expertise.  When buying a used piano from us you know there is over 40 years of experience and hard work supporting your choice.

Each piano comes with a three-year guarantee, delivery to ground floor and the first on-site tuning.

Some important advice

Used pianos can potentially have many problems which can be difficult to identify without expert knowledge. These can include loose tuning pins, split soundboards, and worn out action mechanisms. Some of these problems are structural and often beyond repair, while others might result in unstable tuning, uneven tone, or noises and rattles when playing. The piano may even be unusable.

Where and how a piano has been kept can be vital to its condition and extremes of damp or dry air, even just for a short while, can wreak havoc on the structure and internal mechanism. Again, these issues need experience to identify and will lead to an unsatisfactory playing experience. Wear and tear can also be a problem and knowing how much is acceptable and what to do about it is quite a skill.

So please do be careful if you are considering buying a used piano privately or from anywhere else. With the wrong purchase, a piano which should have brought passion and pleasure will only cause frustration and fail to inspire the player. If it does not play or sound right, interest will fizzle out and the player will give up.

These are the reasons why we go to the lengths we do. We aim to bring you the best experience when buying a second-hand piano by using our knowledge to carefully inspect every piano before we buy it in. This way we ensure that all the pitfalls are safeguarded against and that any necessary repairs are professionally carried out and guaranteed.

Naturally the cabinet is also an important aspect and we take any steps necessary to bring it up to showroom standard.

We are also very proud of the all work we do in tuning, regulating and voicing the pianos and when this is applied to used pianos it always makes a dramatic difference. It restores the touch on the keys and brings the original tonal quality back to life.

Without this work a used piano will never sound or play at its best and will often have a harsh tone. You may never know how good the piano could have been.

When a used piano has been through our process, it is always a joy for us to see its original character and beauty shine through. It will then give you far more pleasure and enjoyment for many years.

We like to think of it as us using the knowledge and experience we have built up so that you can also appreciate the real charm of the piano yourself.

Used piano stock

We actively keep a stock of used upright and grand pianos available in a range of sizes and finishes with prices starting from only around £900. We often have pianos made by Yamaha, Kawai, Petrof, Kemble, Reid-Sohn, Bentley, Welmar, Knight, Broadwood, Chappell and Hoffmann to name just a few.

Many of our used pianos were originally sold by us and this gives us the knowledge that the piano was set up to our high standards to begin with, which very often adds to its present condition and value.

Our stock is always changing so it is best to contact us for the latest details.

We have an email brochure with photos of all our used pianos and this is updated as new pianos arrive.
