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 1980 88-note upright in an ‘small modern’ case, which has been fully repolished for us in dark mahogany. The action is even and smooth, with a medium-weight touch. The tone is warm and mellow throughout the register, though with some power when it’s called for. This instrument has been refurbished to a high standard by The Piano Shop Bath, with a repolished case and fully regulated action.
The light-to-medium touch makes this Rogers piano 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. Feel free to call or email us with any questions, or visit our showroom (open Tuesday to Sunday) and play!
