Kemble - 106 - Classic
The Kemble Piano Company was established in 1911, in Stoke Newington, North London.
Kemble is recognised for nurturing a piano tone that became distinctively British - warm and rich with a superb dynamic range.
In the 1950's production was moved to a state-of-the-art factory in Bletchley, near today's new city of Milton Keynes.
Sales grew very rapidly and the company needed to expand production, which led to a consortium with
Yamaha in 1968.
This Kemble ‘Classic’, despite being a small piano, has a rich tonal quality and impressive sound, while offering a very responsive action with a medium-light touch.
This intelligent design allows for a larger soundboard, longer string length and a greater action height than what can usually be achieved in such a compact piano; all the while affording the player a full 7-octave keyboard and a high level of volume and performance.
With this unique achievement, Kemble satisfied the demand for small upright pianos (which didn’t dominate the room) yet still met with the expectations of discerning pianists. The ‘Classic’ grew to be one of Kemble’s signature models and represents a fine example of British manufacturing ingenuity.
This piano was purchased new in 1976 and has been owned by the same family since., enjoying a life of little use and regular maintenance.
Like all of our pianos, this Kemble has been reconditioned in our workshop - with a full technical service - and comes with the backing of the Sykes & Sons Guarantee.
