We have just had in this beautiful upright piano which was a much loved family piano. It has been used by children learning to play over a number of years and is now looking for a new home now that the children have grown up and sadly no longer play piano.
It is in excellent mechanical condition with ideally weighted keys, not too heavy and not too light. The sound produced is rich and warm with a very good sustain.
We have to admit that this upright piano is a bit of an enigma to us. We know very little about Guilbert as a piano company, but suspect that this is a Japanese built piano using a French name. We all know that the Japanese build excellent pianos and that this piano is a beautifully built piano. We are very sure that this piano is a perfect piano on which to learn. It is robust due to its superb construction, the superb action is versatile and ideal for little fingers just starting to play piano as well as those of much greater skills.
In the open air, the rich rosewood case appears quite vibrant, however in a room it is very subdued and warm. As a result of being in a lively family home, the case of this piano has one or two minor knocks and blemishes. For me, these minor skirmishes seem to add to the character, each being part of the life story of this piano. This is a handsome instrument and has some very nice design touches, for example, there is a beautiful shaping of the legs.
We are offering this piano for sale at £1800 and it comes with a 5 year warranty, free adjustable stool, free first tuning and free local delivery (within M25) to a ground floor room.
Come and give it a try, you will love to have this piano for the whole family to have a play.
