Broadwood 1823/4

This piano, number 28435, is in much better order than most.  It was restored by Andrew Lancaster in 1994, and has been maintained in playing order since then.

It is a fairly early example of a six-octave piano - note the canted ends to the nameboard.  

A year or two earlier, the treble wrestpins were at the right of the piano, but now they are all together at the back.  This piano also has the divided bridge, recently introduced to squares, with the overspun and brass strings on the bass section, changing to a longer scaling for the steel strings to avoid the sudden drop in tension.

This piano has been registered to comply with the ivory sales act - reference XRMYU7QA.  It is in Ascot, Berkshire; the price is £1,750.
