John Broadwood are a classic, highly respected manufacturer of finely constructed quality pianos that are built with great attention to detail, sound and response being the priority, but casework and acoustic chambers of equal importance. They are the oldest British manufacturer and were sold by Royal appointment.
This stunning instrument is completely restored, inside and out. After several months in the workshop, every aspect of this instrument is refinished to the highest standard. The casework is refinished in Satin Graphite Grey (Almost Black), 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 key was put through a cleaning and whitening process using ultra violet light. Piano is tuned, toned and ready to play. Ideal for the beginner, intermediate or advanced level player. Fully restored to last a lifetime and become a true family heirloom.
