Julius Bluthner of Leipzig, Germany

This Outstanding Example was Fully Restored in 2006!

Please do you research on prices and I'm sure you will find in this condition the average shop price will be around £3,750!
They will give a tight 5 year guarantee for the extra £1,000's, But considering a piano of this High Standard has already proved its reliability for some 100 Years! They know once restored it will serve another 30 - 50 years trouble free!

This is your opportunity to buy one of my most treasured pianos that I have put a lot of time and money into! You can buy cheaper, but remember! A new set of strings will cost you over £800, plus 10 - 20 tunings. Action rebuilds with new hammers will cost you well over £600 plus regulating, A full case strip real French polish with cost over £ 1,200, all Plus VAT and that's why a dealer has to sell one in this condition for over £3,750 to make any money!

Why am I selling? I now have two more Bluthner uprights, a Bluthner Aliquot Grand and Ibach double overstrung Grand that I want to restore this year. One of the Bluthner uprights I will offer on Ebay unrestored as it is nice condition following a 1980's restore.

All these pictures were taken on Saturday 11th August 2007 and the You Tube Videos April 2008!
I'm sure even the most scrutinising person viewing them should be impressed with the high level of workmanship by Bluthner and myself.

Most of you viewing may already know how wonderful Bluthner's are, and although Steinway may have a slightly better name, I personally think Bluthner's of this age had far superior engineering inside them.

Their instruments have always been highly respected throughout the piano world and you will see from this Web Link http://www.pianoshop.co.uk/info/ratings.php3 they have a 5 or 6 M star rating out of the maximum of 6

Overstrung/Underdamped Plays like a Modern Piano!

The piano is tuned to concert pitch and will remain in good tune for years, YES MANY YEARS!
I can honestly say this because it has once gone over two years without a tune and when I got around to tune it, only 2 or 3 strings were very slightly out! The rest to my amazement were still at concert pitch, not even slightly below! I'm sure many other pianos tuners will also say the same and I have even heard of one Bluthner grand still at pitch after 20 years!!

Overall this piano would not only be suitable for a learner who does not want to upgrade in several years, but also anyone pianist up to and including grade 8.

It produces a wonderful and powerful tone throughout all the registers and is very easy to play with a light to medium touch.

The Dimensions are:

Width: 59 inches (1500mm) Handle to Handle

Height: 50.5 inches (1280mm)

Depth: 28 inches (710mm) Front to back including the real pull out lifting handles

I'm sure you will see from these pictures that this piano is of the finest quality and will give you many years of trouble free playing and pleasure.

This is only one example of my work and I always have a few more pianos that will not only suit very experienced players, but learners as well!
