Rare Barless Upright - Very Powerful with a Wonderful Tone
Overstrung & Underdamped This is an Original & Sought after 1914/15 Piano!
In 1995 Broadwood Re-introduced This Handcrafted Piano as the New Barless Upright and then Patented the design in 1997?
A Truly Wonderful English Upright Piano from my Collection that I will miss!
How desirable are these pianos and how much would you expect to pay for a fully renovated one? Well £4,350 will buy you this onehttp://www.art-music.co.uk/pianos/uprights.phpA third party reference link: My piano has not been fully renovated, simply because it does not need to be! It has been very well maintained and was fully overhauled a few years ago as you will see and hear later!
Before I begin to detail the piano I would like to say that I can arrange Delivery for the buyer at a very reasonable rate. Please contact me for a quotation and the price given will be subject to a few conditions at the bottom of this page.
TO ENSURE THAT MY LISTING ABIDES WITH ALL OF EBAY'S POLICIES AND I DO NOT GET REPORTED!
I CAN NO LONGER INCLUDE MY USUAL BIG PICTURE POP UPS ON THE IMAGES BELOW!!
Internally the piano is also in excellent condition and has no defects!
All the original keys have been fully checked, serviced and polished as can be seen. NO Chips, Staining or Wear!
The Wrest Plank or Pin Block is structurally sound. Although it can not been seen as it is a full pressed frame, the pins are all tight and there are no deflections.
I can assure you that the piano holds it tuning very well and will only require minor tuning every 6 - 12 months if you require perfection! This is the usual tune up period for all pianos, but in reality all pianos go slightly out of tune (A little flat or sharp overall as their environment warms or cools) within a few hours of tuning!
The piano is tuned to concert pitch, but I will fully check the tuning before delivery! All good stable pianos travel well if handled correctly and I never use the excuse that it will need instant re-tuning after delivery, as I know it will not and can show you this on delivery! If a piano arrives out of tune, then it is either a bad one or was never in tune before it was moved!!
In summing up, this 88 note 7 1/4 octave piano would not only suit a beginner and take them to grade 8, but it will also suit a good pianist who is likes both a powerful tone and subtle tone when required.
The piano has a slightly heavier touch weight than most uprights due to its size and action design and has a similar touch to most German grand pianos.
I'm sure from these pictures and videos that this piano is of very good quality and will give you many years of trouble free playing and pleasure.
Please take time to read my feedback and you will see 100% excellent piano feedback!

WARNING! Don't waste money and time on a piano that has not been tuned for years! There is often a very good reason for this! The piano may be scrap or goes out of tune quickly! A £100 bargain may well end up costing you a few thousand or £75 a month for a piano tuner if he does not give you the bad news to scrap it. If you would like to view, play or ask me any question before bidding, then please give me a call on 01952-228979.
The piano is available in the UK, but if you are an overseas bidder please contact me first before bidding!
I will also require bidders who have a feedback of below 5 or have been registered for less than 4 weeks to give me a call before bidding as my personal auction settings will not allow you to bid!
Delivery will only be to a ground floor location that does not require moving upstairs or more than 3 steps to access!
In the very rare event that the piano can not be manoeuvred into the ground floor room of your choose, please ensure you have another suitable location available.
The piano can be collected as long as it has been paid for prior with cleared funds or payment for the piano can be made in full before delivery or if you prefer, in cash on delivery as long as my delivery fee has been paid for in advance.
