At The Piano Shop Bath we don’t just sell pianos, we provide a full range of services for all piano-related issues, ranging from a simple tuning to a complete rebuild. One of the most happy aspects of life at the piano shop is seeing older traditional pianos being given a new lease of life through the work of our piano technicians. Currently we have a 1920s John Broadwood upright piano in the shop that is just a little bit special, this upright Broadwood piano has been completely revitalized by our expert technicians, here we take a closer look at this beautifully restored upright piano.
In the 1920s the London piano trade was booming and John Broadwood pianos were highly prized instruments. This 1920s Broadwood is a wonderful example of the craftsmanship that went into each individual piano. Older John Broadwood pianos are always a nice reminder of a time now long gone but regarded by many as the golden age of piano manufacturing. There is real dignity within this piano, it showcases a level of warmth and character that set it apart and at 122 centimetres tall and 137 centimetres wide it would be a charismatic addition to any domestic setting.
What makes this piano especially appealing to me is the quality of the restoration work that has been carried out within: the tone is very pleasing and the touch is nice and responsive. This piano has had a full restring and action overhaul, including new hammers and dampers, the tone is clear, warm and well rounded, this is a piano that really seems to sing. Overall this is a fantastic, unique piano, the fusion of brand new parts embedded within the history and character of a 1920s John Broadwood piano has resulted in something rather special here, I love the combination of old meets new. If you are looking for an older traditional upright piano from a prestigious English manufacturer, but want the advantages offered by a brand new piano, this restored upright piano could be just what you are looking for.
