Otto Bach upright (1980)
This Otto Bach was manufactured in Wellington in 1980. It was refinished in a white satin finish with black trim, which if quite striking. The piano has been fully serviced and comes with a matching bench. Suitable for beginner to intermediate level of play.
Knight upright (1980)
Knight are an interesting English brand, no longer in production. These pianos had some excellent and unique
design features, especially the use of a single bridge for the tenor, middle and treble registers. They have a good sweet and singing sound, clear and bell like. Models such as this were manufactured especially for the South African market. Knight used a “sound port” in the bottom panel which allows sound to come out more freely from the instrument and makes a big difference to the clarity and fullness of tone. These pianos are distinctive and becoming more popular again as a kind of retro style. This piano will also serve well for entry to mid-level players or family use.
Yamaha U1 upright (1976)
At a height of 121 cm, this is a large upright. Yamaha U1's from the 1970's were renown for their excellent tone and are still highly sought after by pianists, suitable from beginner to advanced.
C. Bechstein L grand (1925)
Bechstein is one of the great iconic brands manufactured in Germany. It is ranked with Steinway, Fazioli, Blüthner and Bosendorfer. This piano was bought from us with a full authentic rebuild approximately 8 years ago. The hammers, strings, pins, etc. are therefore still quite new with little wear and the piano is available at quite an attractive price.
Kawai GL-10 (2019)
The GL-10 baby grand represents exceptional value for money. At its price and quality level I would rate it as the best baby grand on the market, and significantly superior to other brands at this level. Small grand pianos are the most difficult pianos to build convincingly and Kawai excel in this area of expertise. We have experience with the GL-10 in a number of performance spaces where space dictated the need for a baby grand, and the response from pianists and audiences has been extremely positive.
Kawai GL-50 (2021)
This is a medium size grand with similar tone design to the GL-30 & GL-40 but with the larger dynamic range and expressiveness that comes from the longer strings and larger soundboard area. It offers all of the characteristics to satisfy advanced playing or performance in a moderate size venue. The larger size also creates elegant proportions that make it very aesthetically pleasing. Sold new by us and maintained since it's arrival in SA in Jan 2022.
Bösendorfer is one of the great iconic brands and falls into the category of fine, hand-built pianos. It is ranked with Steinway, Fazioli, Blüthner and Bechstein. Relatively young Bösendorfers are quite rare in South Africa. This piano was bought new by a professional musician who has owned it until now. Approximately 5 years ago it had a hammer replacement with authentic parts and we have done further comprehensive servicing to bring the piano back into an excellent condition. It is now a very good representative of Bösendorfers distinctive tone and touch.
Steinway Model O grand (1952)
This 1952 Steinway Model O has been fully and authentically rebuilt by our team, this is a great investment for anyone who aspires to be a Steinway & Sons owner.
