Welcome to the Bedhampton Pianoshop Blog!

We have been restoring and selling pianos since 1988. We specialise in restoring and reconditioning old pianos, both upright and grand. Our work ranges from minor servicing right through to complete overhauls and rebuilding projects which take many weeks to complete.

The aim of the blog is to post regular progress reports on ongoing restoration work, as well as updates on the current available stock and any new arrivals. Where possible these updates will be accompanied by photos to demonstrate the work that we do.

Dear Graham,
Apologies for the delay. The Chappell upright we bought from you is lovely! It has a beautiful mellow tone and I'm very pleased we took the plunge and bought it from you. Thank you very much for all your help and patience and the professional service you gave us while we tried out the different pianos in your shop.
Best wishes,

Hello Graham, 

I wanted to let you know how delighted we are with the Knight piano we purchased from you for our daughter. It  looks and sounds lovely and as I hope you can see from the photo, fits perfectly into our home.
It's been a pleasure dealing with you and we have been grateful for all your advice and the high quality of service we have received. 
Kind regards

Hi Graham, 
Thanks for your email. I'm thrilled with the piano and the guys were great at getting it in. Thanks very much for all your help, I'll be in touch in a while to arrange the first tuning. Thanks again!

What happens to pianos that are beyond the sale by date
(no longer restorable) well they go to the piano graveyard waiting to be burnt.
very sad for a piano restorer to do this,but needs must.
we do not have the room @ bedhampton pianoshop to store them all.

Hi Graham, 

Just a note to say thank you for setting up the contact with the piano tuner and of course a huge thank you for my wonderful new piano! I'm enjoying it so much and am so happy with it. Thank you for all your advice and time the day we visited too. 

Kind regards,

 Once  again  I  must  express  my  thanks  to  Graham  and  his  team  of  experts  at  Bedhampton  on  the recent

    re-stringing   work  carried  out  to  my    Street  Piano   with  its  unusual  Mandoline  tremolo action.

       This  is   the  third  time  I  have  entrusted  an  instrument  to  Graham  and  the  team   for   remedial  work

    and   I  have to say  that  each  time  there  has  been  much  discussion  beforehand  and  attention  to  the

     details  of  the  project  to  ensure  a  satisfactory  finished  job  of  the  work  in hand.

       Also   special  thanks  are  due  to  Harry  for  his  attention  and  expertise  when  tuning  the  new strings

    as  it  was  his  first  excursion into  the  mechanics of  a barrel - piano  ,     with    non - chromatic   scale, 

      lower   than  standard   pitch   ,  duplication  of  octave  in the  middle  range  and  all  without  a  keyboard

       to  guide him !

         Graham's  knowledge  in  piano  technology  is  extensive  with  many  years  experience  under his  belt.

     I   have  every  confidence  in his  ability   to   carry  out   restoration  work  to   the  highest   standards

     and  will  certainly  be  contacting  him  again for  any  future restoration  projects.   

        By   that  token    I  would   certainly   have  no  hesitation  in  recommending   to  others.
