Broadwood 1801

Regular visitors to this website will know that these early Broadwoods are my favourite square pianos, with their beautiful brass under-dampers, and detail improvements to the single action.  The fine example now offered for sale is a 5½-octave model.

This one was expertly restored David Hunt in 1992; a full report is available on request.

The brass dampers have the curved form to allow for the slightly larger hammers introduced around 1794, but the tone of these pianos remains light and silvery.

It remains in excellent condition, although it has not been tuned for a number of years.

The price for this professionally-restored piano is £3,000; it is in Diss, Norfolk.
