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.

 Kemble upright piano -  c.1988

A relatively late arrival to the piano manufacturing business, Kemble pianos were established in London in 1911.  They produced many pianos during the 30's and 40's. Many of these pianos were left "unbranded" and sold with other names on them.

This 1988 "classic" model was built towards the end of their manufacturing, and the same year that Yamaha took control of the company.  

It is finished in a very compact mahogany cabinet, which is in very good order.

The 85 note keyboard has been thoroughly cleaned, and the key coverings buffed.
