Bechstein and the 'B' range), Bösendorfer, Schimmel, W. Hoffmann, and Yamaha’s top-of-the-range SU7.

The grand setting of the piano showroom in our historic Manchester city centre music shop (est. 1857) is the perfect place to try out a wide range of upright pianos by different makers. Our expert sales staff are here to guide you around the 60+ instruments we always have in stock, explaining the advantages and characteristics of each so that you can make an informed choice.
Every piano we sell has been fully prepared by our in-house team of technicians to ensure the highest quality when it reaches you.
