SALES

As our main business involves the tuning, repairs and restoration of pianos, we don't have a huge showroom full of expensive pianos. However, we always try to maintain a small selection of pianos available for purchase. These are the pianos that we love to restore. There are many pianos out there, but the majority of them are now past their best, or even when newly built, were only ever mediocre. Because of this, a lot of our time is spent sourcing the right pianos for restoration. Each one is personally selected, and is an instrument we would happily have in our own home. We do a considerable amount of work on every piano that comes into our workshop, that includes the newer instruments too. 

 

As we are often out and about tuning, give us call to make an appointment to visit.  We will give you honest, straightforward advice, along with a cup of tea  (and a biscuit if you're lucky!) This page is updated regularly, however, if you do not see what you are looking for in the photos below, call us as we may have something suitable not shown; or at the very least we can discuss your requirements. Every piano comes with a  guarantee of our workmanship for a period of 3 years.

 

                                                                                                                                               

                                                            

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                                                

 

 

                                                                

 

                                                              

Delivery of pianos is a costly business and needs not only knowledge and experience, but also the correct equipment too.

For pianos that are within a 75km radius of Kilrossanty, delivery is free of charge. For customers outside that radius, there is a small fee , but rest assured, we don't make a profit on delivery - the fee only covers our extra time and costs incurred.

Knight "York" upright piano  c.1989

Arguably the finest British piano maker of the latter half of the 20th century, the quality of the pianos that Alfred Knight produced was of such importance, that when he started production of his first grand pianos, he only made a handful of them before he decided to discontinue them, as he didn't feel they were good enough. Thankfully, he was happy with the uprights, and since 1936, manufactured many fine instruments.

This "York" model was one of the last made before the closure of the Knight factory in Loughton, Essex. 

This particular model is one of their famed "exotic" veneers, namely figured walnut, that they produced every now and again to stand out a bit from the usual veneers. As can be seen, it does!

Internally, the hammers have been refaced and the centres replaced, so everything works exactly is it should!  The action and keyboard has also been regulated, with the usual attention to detail we afford on every one of our pianos.

A great opportunity to own a great piano...

Legnica upright piano -  c.1992

Legnica pianos were built in the former Ed. Seiler factory in Leignitz, Germany. Following the second world war, Leignitz was transferred to Poland, and became Legnica. In 1948, Legnica pianos were established.

This particular instrument was built in 1992. It is finished in a mahogany polyester cabinet. All brassware has been repolished, the pedal system serviced, and internally the action has been recentred and regulated to ensure it plays nicely. It has a full 88 note keyboard, and the third practice pedal. 

With a touch not as heavy as some similar pianos, this is a great piano for a beginner.
