About Us

Sykes & Sons Pianos is a family-owned business, which is built on the belief that high-quality standards and customer care are of the utmost importance; an ethos that has been nurtured and instilled over three generations of devoted craftsmen. 


Over the years, we have provided musicians throughout the UK with high-quality, reconditioned, restored and rebuilt pianos, with no compromise on workmanship, materials or guarantee. This high level of service is what our reputation is built on, and as a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals.


We are very proud that our clientele includes many professional musicians, tutors and even other piano firms, all of whom rely on our in-depth expertise of the instrument.


We also consider ourselves fortunate to have such a wealth of experience from our team of piano tuners and technicians, who are not only entrusted to service the pianos of many private individuals but also several of the UK's leading institutions of musical excellence.

Quality Without Compromise 

Our aim is simple.
High-quality pianos, an exemplary level of service and ultimate customer satisfaction. 

All of our pianos have been thoroughly reconditioned in our climate controlled workshop, where we deal with every instrument individually in order to achieve the best possible results and maintain the high level of quality and finish that we are known for.


Rather than offering every available model on the market, we carefully hand-select each of our pianos, choosing from brands which we trust and have only the utmost confidence in.

Our decision to retail on a small scale allows us to invest extra time and materials into enhancing every detail of the piano's performance in an unhurried way.

This approach is what makes Sykes & Sons different from general music shops.

Visits by Appointment

A well-chosen piano may become a valued companion for life, which is why we strive to make your visit to Sykes & Sons as enjoyable and informative as possible.

We do not agree with high-pressure sales tactics and promise a relaxed and informal atmosphere. 
Our aim is to offer the best advice possible, so you can make the best buying decision based on your requirements.


The most important thing to us is that - years down the line - you feel you made a great choice, and are happy to recommend us to others.
