Welmar - Regency
We are very proud to offer this elegant upright piano by the highly respected British manufacturer, Welmar.
Welmar was established in 1925 by
Whelpdale, Maxwell & Codd Ltd. (WMC).
Welmar had a reputation for building very high quality, stable pianos with a very fine touch and tone.
WMC was originally the U.K agent for the very famous German manufacturer, Blüthner. WMC learned a great deal from this close working relationship and incorporated many characteristics and designs, otherwise unique to Blüthner, into their own pianos. The use of 'royal blue' felt on Welmar pianos is symbolic of the relationship between these two manufacturers.
Welmar pianos have always been appreciated by students and teachers alike because they were built with the Blüthner tone in mind, by craftsmen devoted to the art of piano building.
The Welmar Regency is somewhat of a rare find on the second-hand market, due to a limited number of them produced.
Regency furniture incorporates designs from the ancient Greek, Roman, and Egyptian cultures. The Regency era is commonly defined as spanning a period of approximately 40 years, from 1795 to 1837, and encompasses the reign of the Prince Regent (later as King George IV) of Great Britain.
This Welmar has been well-loved throughout its life, belonging to the same family since new, who had the piano tuned and serviced on a regular basis.
This Welmar was manufactured in 1988 and is housed in a graceful rosewood (high gloss) case, featuring a beautiful bookmatched pyramid mahogany top door, decorated with rosettes and column legs; with the original stool to match.
This piano offers a full 88 note keyboard, full-length music desk, mellow tone, light touch and three pedals - including a celeste pedal.
Like all our pianos offered for sale, this Welmar has been thoroughly reconditioned in our workshop and expertly prepared by our specialist technicians; ensuring the highest possible standards, and comes with our 5-year guarantee.
