At Forsyths we have been selling pianos since 1857 and are now the largest independent piano shop in the UK. At the heart of our Piano Department is the fact that we are all passionate about these wonderful instruments as pianists, technicians, tuners, and appreciators. We choose our huge range of pianos with care and prepare every instrument with the closest possible attention to detail. We are piano specialists and we love sharing our enthusiasm and knowledge with other musicians. We are the only authorised Schimmel dealers (including the Wilhelm Schimmel, Schimmel International, Schimmel Classic and Schimmel Konzert ranges) in the Manchester , Cheshire, Liverpool, Yorkshire, Lancashire and Cumbria areas and we are also authorised main dealers for Boesendorfer, Bechstein, Hoffman, Yamaha, Kawai & Kemble.
When you buy a piano at Forsyth you are able to choose from one of the widest range of new, second-hand, re-conditioned/re-built, grand, upright, silent, self-playing and special design acoustic pianos in the UK, giving you every chance of meeting your perfect musical companion. We’ll give you the tools to explore the pianos for yourself, helping you to find the character which is right for a place in your family. Once you’ve bought from us, you are then part of Forsyths. We love to hear how our customers are getting on and we pride ourselves on always having time to answer any questions you might have or just to have a friendly chat about your latest musical endeavours.
As you browse our range using the menu on the left-hand side, you will notice that whilst some pianos have prices and can be ordered online, many do not. This is because we firmly believe in the value of choosing a piano by experiencing it for yourself and we want you to take the opportunity to speak with us and visit our showroom to ensure that you make the right choice for your needs, both now and in the future.
