Award winning pianos, handmade in England

Based in former cowsheds on the Yorkshire Dales, Cavendish Pianos are a specialist family team committed to crafting exceptional pianos. Cavendish is one of only two remaining piano build houses still in operation in the United Kingdom.

With each piano built with up to 20,000 parts, Cavendish Pianos work with hardwood sawmills, felt makers and a hand-spinner of piano strings to craft exceptional pianos made with exquisite materials such as British walnut, ash and oak.

Cavendish has received plaudits across the piano playing community, national press and music industry. In 2014, the Cavendish Contemporary 121 Upright Piano won the 2014 Music Industry Award in the Best Acoustic Piano category.

After selecting from their diverse range, customers can choose to include custom plaques, inscriptions and special features making a unique piano to be enjoyed for generations to come. The team will capture each stage of your piano being built, for you to treasure and share.

The Full Cavendish Range

Cavendish Classic 112

Despite being of small size (112cm) it possesses an astonishing richness of sound. Its treble is open and crystal without ever being harsh. The middle sings naturally and is classically European.
The bass astonishes by its depth and full tone without drowning the treble. The range of sound of this instrument is large and its reserve of power is very impressive.
It is an excellent instrument with very good musical qualities at an affordable price.

Dimensions: Height 112 cm, Width 150cm, Depth 60cm

£4995 Including delivery and complimentary tuning.

The Cavendish Classic is available in polished black as standard although any other finish is available to order.
