Rogers - 104
George Rogers started his business in 1843, shortly after completing his apprenticeship at the famous Collard & Collard. The Rogers family ran a small music shop in Camden Town, selling sheet music in addition to pianos. Rogers operated a workshop located just a short walk away from the store, in which a small team of craftsmen carefully produced Rogers pianos. The earliest Rogers pianos displayed a small inscription from Collard & Collard on the name board, calling back to Rogers' training at the well-established manufacturer.
The business slowly expanded and had opened two retail stores, in addition to a large showroom and office in the West End. George Rogers was eventually joined by his four sons, whom all enjoyed different roles in the family operation.
Rogers is best known for the company's large, traditional uprights which have a good reputation for being well designed and robustly constructed. The production of Rogers pianos was eventually passed through to Whelpdale, Maxwell & Codd, makers of the Welmar piano, who continued to produce them right up until 2003 when their own factory sadly closed.
Although Rogers is not as well known as some other British piano manufacturers, such as Danemann, Welmar & Knight, the build quality is generally very good and it is a brand that we always aim to have in stock whenever a good example, such as this one, becomes available to us.
This modern upright boasts a brilliant dynamic range across the registers and offers a full 88 note keyboard, with a balanced and responsive touch. These pianos are ideal for players who desire a compact, modern instrument without the restrictions that come with digital/hybrid pianos within the same price range.
This Rogers upright is housed in an attractive, sapele mahogany case which is nicely proportioned across the whole cabinet. This piano was purchased new in 1986 and has been owned by the same family since, benefiting from regular care and maintenance.
Like all of our pianos, this Rogers has been fully serviced in our workshop and comes with the full backing of the Sykes & Sons Guarantee.
