Squire/Kemble - Classic
Upright Piano

The Squire Piano Company has a history stretching back to the very early 1800s and involves no fewer than 20 members of the family. 

In 1964, the production of Squire pianos was transferred to Kemble.

The Chappell 110 was among the most popular models of British upright pianos during its time of production. The intelligent design of the 110 combines compactness with performance as it was intended to satisfy pianists while remaining sympathetic to space restrictions and contemporary home furnishings. The 110 contains the largest soundboard area and string length possible in a piano of its size and this is reflected in the instrument's volume and depth of tone. This upright is an excellent, modern instrument and another fine example of British piano manufacturing.

Kemble joined forces with the well-established Yamaha Corporation of Japan in 1968 to create Yamaha-Kemble Music (UK) Ltd. Yamaha was already recognised as a world-leading piano producer with a reputation for the high quality of their products and their dedication to excellence in manufacturing. Kemble welcomed the improvements which Yamaha introduced through optimising the manufacturing process, streamlining the production line, and collaborating with Kemble to create a whole new range of pianos, in addition to revising some existing models to create a new generation of instruments with a further enhanced quality of sound and performance.

The 'Classic' was among the existing Kemble models that benefited from Yamaha's influence. The Classic has a newly designed, full perimeter frame for added stability and longer string length, with a completely refreshed scale design. The added height allows for a larger soundboard and a greater action height with better materials throughout the entire construction than the previous Classic; all the while retaining the favoured British tone that Kemble was renowned for.


With this, Kemble continued to satisfy the demand for small upright pianos (which didn’t dominate the room) yet still met with the expectations of discerning pianists. The Classic has always been a firm favorite of our customers, so we always aim to have at least one Classic available at all times.


This Classic is housed in a nicely proportioned teak case with a satin finish. This piano was purchased new in 1985 and has been owned by the same family since, benefiting from regular care and maintenance.


Like all of our pianos, this Kemble has been reconditioned in our workshop and comes to you fully serviced with the backing of the Sykes & Sons Guarantee.
