British modern piano by Woodchester in unusual traditional style. Reduced to £1550
Woodchester Pianos were founded in 1994 – they were one of the last British piano manufacturers.
‘Woodchester Piano Company has staked a firm commitment to traditional methods of manufacture, creating an individual product that is built to last. Over 200 operations are necessary to complete the manufacture of each piano, from the precision casting and drilling of the iron frame, to the skillful carving of the bridge.Many operations are still carried out by hand, involving the trained eyes and ears of craftsmen, heirs to generations of piano making skills. At the heart of the instrument, the all-important soundboard is crafted from solid spruce, selected from timber grown in the mountains of Central Europe.Top quality German cross laminated wrest planks are used to ensure tuning stability. The copper-wound strings are of the highest quality, while the British-made felt hammers are hand cured to give a crisp, sure striking action over tens of thousands of keystrokes.’
