With more than 60 new grand pianos and many rebuilt, reconditioned and second hand instruments in stock, Forsyth has the best selection of quality grand pianos to be found in any piano shop in the UK today. We have a team of full time, in house, piano technicians, tuners and voicing specialists who, uniquely, prepare our instruments to the highest standard. Choosing a new piano can be a daunting experience and most shops only have one or two brands for you to choose from. We take great care in selecting the piano makers we carry, ensuring that we offer the best possible instruments at each price point. We base everything on quality over and above brand name, placing the emphasis on musical capability. Our vast experience and knowledge means that we can give you impartial advice and help you to make the right choice for your needs. Assessing a piano need not be confusing and we can show you simple methods of making a discerned choice.
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 grand 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. When a piano has travelled half way across the world from the factory attention to detail in preparation is vital, and you can rest assured that every piano we sell has to pass our approval before being ready for sale, unlike other shops.
