Welcome to this new page, specially for the 'Older Keyboard Instruments'. In contrast to square pianos, there are relatively few original older instruments about, So although we will be happy to welcome Originals, most of the instruments on these pages will be replicas or 'Revival' instruments.
Please remember that I have not seen the instruments on this page, and any comments I may make are based entirely on information provided by the seller and my own interpretation of the pictures. Buyers should make their own enquiries, and should view the instruments whenever possible. Buyers are responsible for collection; please do not assume that the seller will be able to assist with handling.
Please also be aware that there may be export or import requirements or restrictions between certain countries. For example CITES certificates my be required if the piano conains materials such as ivory or certain woods. It is the buyer's responsibility to ensure that any such requirements are met, but in practice it may be easier for the seller to make the application, and to be reimbursed by the buyer. The CITES fee is currently £37.
I make no charges to either buyer or seller, but if you would like to support Cats Protection, my chosen charity, please go to www.cats.org.uk/wellingborough to make a donation. Thank you.
Buyers and sellers please note that for the interest of other visitors to the site, pictures and details of the instruments will remain for a while after they have been sold. They will be marked as 'sold', and sellers' contact details and asking-prices will be removed.
There have been a few cases where instruments have just 'disappeared', and some where owners have disposed of them privately and forgotten to let me know. So please note that the advertisements will stay on this page for a year or so. If owners wish them to stay longer, would they please make a request in good time?
