    Beautifully restored pianos to last another 100 years

    Here at Forsyths we pride ourselves in having a wide selection of pianos available from a range of makers offering something a little different and special as well as the tried and tested modern day ‘best sellers’. We always like to have some fully rebuilt pianos on offer that are both a beautiful piece of furniture as well as a superb musical instrument. We are in the final stages of restoring one such fine piano - this Steinway Model A in rosewood dating from 1898.

    Our French polisher has been painstakingly restoring the casework to its former glory.

    In the second picture you can see the piano pre-restoration. We have had to rebuild the bottom of the ‘elephant’ legs to how Steinway originally intended with the castors hidden beneath. The faded rosewood has been returned to its true glory.
