Knight upright (1953)

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, using solid imbuia wood for the cabinet. This wood alone would cost a great deal now!

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. In addition, this particular piano has a moulded top front panel. This piano will also serve well for entry to mid-level players or family use and the cabinet has been fully refinished in a hand French-polish.

Dietmann upright (c. 1970's)

Dietmann is a German brand that was manufactured under license at the Wellington factory in SA as one of their mid to upper level pianos. This piano has been hand French-polished and has a very attractive Walnut cabinet. It is in very good mechanical condition and at 114cm is a mid-sized upright with a good, generous tone and suitable for anybody from a beginner up to more advanced levels of grade 6 and 7.

Kawai K300 upright (2015) mahogany

This is a very young K300 sold new by us and maintained since then. It received light use from an adult amateur who took very good care of the instrument, both mechanically and in terms of its cabinet, it is in immaculate condition. As the mahogany and other wood finishes are becoming more rare and costly, this is a good opportunity for someone wanting a natural finish at a good price. This is the second piano in the K-Hundred series. At 122cm tall it is suitable for all levels of use up to and including professional level and advanced teaching. It is one of Kawai’s most highly regarded models.

Steinway model K upright (1967)

Steinway Model K is perhaps the most famous upright piano ever made and although the term “upright grand” is inherently inaccurate for any pianos, the model K is probably as close to a grand piano tone as any design can come. It is very unusual to find Model K Steinways of this period, which is modern and has the current style of Steinway mechanism. Most of these pianos in SA are a previous, obsolete mechanism type. We sold this instrument 10 years ago and have maintained it since. It has an exceptional tone - very powerful, clear and colourful. The touch is also faster and lighter than is sometimes found on these models and it has a good live span remaining in the hammers and other major parts.

Height: 132cm

Bösendorfer (1974)

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 B grand (2011)

The Steinway Model B has always been one of their most sought after instruments, at 211 cm it is an ideal size for use ether in a small recital space or as an excellent home piano. The model B has an extraordinary wide dynamic range with a lot of power and charisma. This particular instrument is so young (10 yrs old) that it would rate very close to a new piano. Owned by a serious, but non-professional pianist, it has had moderate use and is in impeccable condition. The piano will be serviced to recital level standard and can meet the highest expectations for almost any context. With new prices at approx. R2.3m, this represents a attractive opportunity.
