Type: Overstrung/Underdamper Upright Piano
Brand: Collard & Collard, UK
Finish: Satin Mahogany
Date of Manufacture: 1941

Collard and Collard are one of the early makers in the UK, being established in 1767. This piano was built considerably later, in 1941. It's finished in a newly resprayed mahogany cabinet, and with all the brass being polished too, does look very smart. Collard & Collard are around such a long time that they played a big role in the evolution of the piano, it's design and internal working parts. Many other piano makers learnt from them and adapted their ideas to suit their own instruments.

Dimensions: Width: 140cm, Depth: 60cm, Height: 119cm

After several months in the workshop, every aspect of this instrument is refinished to the highest standards. The casework now looks the same as when it was originally manufactured, having been stripped back, repaired and finished with many coats of the finest grade polish.

The brass trimmings included every screw, inside and out, are refinished and/or replaced in areas. The back of the piano is resprayed and fully lined. The meticulously prepared internal mechanism known as the ‘action’ is thoroughly regulated and overhauled, with hundreds of new parts including new tapes, springs, felts, bushings, screws etc.

The hammers are resurfaced, realigned, and now perform at their optimum best. The keyboard and pedal maintenance results in a responsive touch and comfortable playing experience. The pedal section was removed and reconditioned: while pedals were out, the inner base of the piano resprayed. Pedals are regulated and new pads installed around them to reduce movement noise. Strings, pins, and soundboard are cleaned.

Each ivory key was put through a cleaning and whitening process using ultra violet light. Piano is tuned, toned and ready to play. Fully restored to last a lifetime and become a true family heirloom.
