As you walk by The Piano Shop Bath on London Road, you may have noticed the white grand piano in our window! This regular feature of our showroom is a Reid Sohn SIG 48 Grand Piano, which we have been stocking for a while now. With their competitive price and all round good sound and touch, they provide a solution for all your grand piano needs!
We are excited to be now be including a few upright pianos from the Reid Sohn range as well. The 112RI and 115D are two models that each have their own character. The 112RI with its more traditional design features has a larger cabinet with a more resonant and bright sound. The 115D by contrast has a smaller cabinet and warmer tonal pallet.
Both pianos come with the manufacturers 5 year warranty and if you take a look inside the cabinet, you’ll see in these pictures that these are solid pianos that will provide years of playing.
The Reid Sohn story began with J.Reid pianos, a company that started supplying pianos in 1928. The company grew and decided to have their own line of pianos manufactured.
Today, Reid Sohn pianos are manufactured by Samick pianos, a huge piano manufacturer in Indonesia who have been building pianos for 50 years. This has taken place under the careful supervision of world respected piano technician, Klaus Fenner. Fenner co-developed the Imperial German scale keyboard which appears on all Reid Sohn pianos.
Quality spruce and air-dried maple are combined with tempered, nickel-plated pins, German hammer felt and laminated German pin blocks. This combination of Indonesian manufacturing and German engineering has produced affordable pianos that hold their weight when it comes to tone and touch. Reid Sohn pianos have also been commended by the piano industry, when they won the Music Industry Association award in 2002 and 2003 for their RS112RI traditional upright piano.
So come on down to The Piano Shop Bath and check these pianos out. You’ll be impressed by the playability and price that Reid Sohn pianos offer, and we’ll gladly take you through the options available in the range we stock here.
