Rogers were a London piano maker, one of Britain’s oldest and longest-established builders. The name is not quite as well-known as those of Broadwood, Chappell etc. but the instruments are of consistent high quality, from the 1900s to the 1980s. Rogers pianos tend to have a light, playable touch and a full, ‘British’ tone, clear but not too bright. As instruments of high quality and sturdy construction they are often good candidates for restoration and can be expected to last many years.
This Rogers piano is a 1980s ‘small modern’ 88-note upright in a spotless and very attractive mahogany case. The action is even and smooth, with light to medium touch weight. The tone is full and clear without being too bright, with a brilliant treble and very rich bass for a smaller instrument. This instrument has been used very lightly and, as such, is in wonderful condition and has been regulated by our dedicated technician. The light touch makes this Rogers especially suitable for young beginners but it would equally suit the advanced pianist who prefers a lighter action. This is a quality piano which can be expected to continue to play and sound well for years to come.
