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. 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.

Welmar upright piano -  c.1955

Established in 1925, Welmar would go on to become one of the finest British piano manufacturers. 

This instrument was built in 1955, and its style is a perfect blend of traditional and modern. What sets this piano apart from many of its contemporaries is its 88 note ivory keyboard. This would have been, and still is, a quality piano.

The mahogany case has been stripped and re polished and all brasswork buffed. 

Internally the action has been restored, with many new parts and materials, ensuring this instrument will play as it should for many more decades.

Configuration  :  Overstrung / Underdamper

Dimensions  :       Width      142cm

                               Depth        59cm

                               Height     119cm

Schiedmayer upright piano -  c.1914

The Schiedmayer family  have been building stringed instruments since 1735. This piano was built by J&P Schiedmayer in Stuttgart in 1914. Although probably not a particularly well known brand, they are certainly up there with the best of the other German manufacturers.

The rosewood cabinet has some lovely decorative features and the brass inlay on the fall is a work of art in itself.

The cabinet has been stripped and repolished and all brasswork buffed. The keyboard has been recovered, so is as good as new.

Internally, the action has been reconditioned and regulated so everything is in fine working order.

All in all, a really nice instrument and a fine piece of furniture.

Configuration  :  Overstrung / Underdamper

Dimensions  :       Width      152cm

                               Depth        65cm

                               Height     130cm

Blüthner upright piano -  c.1920

Julius Blüthner established his company in Leipzig in 1853. Along with Steinway, Bösendorfer, and Bechstein, Blüthner is frequently referred to as one of the "Big Four" piano manufacturers. By 1900, he would become the largest piano maker in Germany, producing 5,000 instruments per year.

This particular piano was manufactured in 1920. 

We have undertaken extensive restoration work on this piano, including a reguilded frame, new tuning pins and strings, recovered hammer heads by Abel, and much more!

The rosewood cabinet has been stripped and repolished, and even if we do say so ourselves, looks fabulous! It really does exude quality in all its detail.

The ivory keyboard is still in excellent condition, with no chips.

Pianos of this calibre rarely come onto the market nowadays, so this is an ideal opportunity to acquire a quality instrument.

Configuration  :  Overstrung / Underdamper

Dimensions  :        Width   -  157cm

                                Depth   -    69cm

                               Height   -  129cm

Dietmann upright piano -  c.1989

Dietmann pianos were established in South Africa in 1955. They produced quality upright pianos in their Wellington factory until their closure in 1989. This piano was manufactured in May 1989, so is one of the last made. A definite plus for Dietmann pianos were their use of the UK company Herrburger Brooks for their actions and keyboards, so they play very nicely, as well as having a really good bass register. This still looks like a new piano inside, showing very little signs of wear on any of the sections.

Because of the design of the cabinet on this piano, we thought a solid paint finish would show it off nicely, so we used Farrow & Ball Plummet.

We are really pleased with the result. It really does look striking, especially with the matching adjustable stool.

Configuration  :  Overstrung / Underdamper

 

Dimensions  :        Width   -  150cm

                                Depth   -    55cm

                               Height   -  124cm

Atlas  upright piano -  c.1980

Atlas were one of Japan's leading  piano  manufacturers alongside Kawai and Yamaha until their demise at the end of the 1980's. Their instruments were well respected in the trade as being of the highest quality. This A1 Model is finished in a Dark Mahogany polyester, a great alternative to the usual black seen so often. Internally, the action is smooth, responsive and plays beautifully.

Sitting at 123cm in height, the A1 is slightly larger than Yamaha's U1 model, and the proportions look perfect.

An ideal instrument for those wanting the quality of a Japanese piano, but without the usual price tag.....

Configuration  :  Overstrung / Underdamper

Dimensions  :        Width   -  152cm

                                Depth   -    63cm

                               Height   -  123cm

Bentley upright piano -  c.1974

Bentley pianos were manufactured in Woodchester, near Stroud in the UK. They were always a very popular piano in homes, mainly due to their small stature and appealing design. 

This model is the Compact 85. It is finished in a Medium Mahogany case, which is in very good condition all round.  All the brasswork has been repolished, the keyboard has been cleaned and buffed, and the action cleaned and regulated.

This is what we class as our type of starter piano. It is not an old Victorian piano with an overdamper action, but a small modern piano that will fit comfortably in most homes, and give the budding pianist the best opportunity for learning.....
