You will all be aware of the global cost inflation we're seeing across all industries and products.

You'll feel it every time you visit the petrol station or go to the supermarket, and we are sorry to report that we are experiencing the same inflationary pressures in the piano trade and prices are going up. We would like to assure you that we are doing everything we can to minimise these cost increases for our customers.
