The C Bechstein "London" model is a beautifully crafted baby grand that delivers extremely high sound quality for a small grand piano. Many baby grands lose tonal quality due to short string length and soundboard size, but Bechstein overcome this by the way they designed the soundboard, the way the bridge is attatched to it, and how it is fixed in relation to the soundboards ribs. This design creates greater resonance over a small area giving the piano longer than average resonance making this baby grand piano a serious piano to consider for even the most discerning of musicians. This Bechstein is fitted with the same action that is found in bigger Bechstein models, so one of the most important assets Bechstein offers can be found in this baby grand. Bechstein's actions are famous for offering accuracy and repitition that leads to fault free performance, without the bounce or double hit you can occaisionaly get from other actions. This Bechstein is finsihed in black high gloss, it is as attractive a furniture piece as it is a musical instrument.

At Shackleford pianos, we offer a guarantee on all of the pianos that we sell.
The length of this warranty will vary dependant on the piano, but the minimum will be five years. You will be advised of the length of your warranty. Our guarantee covers any technical fault that you may encounter with your piano however, any fault due to misuse, problems encountered from not having the piano serviced regularly and any problems caused due to excess or inconsistent heat, cold or moisture will not be covered by our warranty.
To ensure that your piano is covered by our warranty it must be serviced by a representative of Shackleford Pianos, along with this, please follow our tips on how to take care of your piano:
Even if your piano is not used it will go out of tune. Make sure you have your piano tuned every six months.
Avoid humidity. The best humidity level to keep a piano at is around 60%
Avoid placing your piano near a radiator or against an outside wall, near open fireplaces or log burners.
Avoid water damage. Keep vases, pot plants, cups of tea etc away from the piano.
When you clean your piano use a micro fibre cloth. Do not use furniture polish.
The best temperature to keep your piano at is between 21 - 24c The worst thing you can expose a piano to is extremes of heat and humidity. For example, if you go away for a few days and let your house freeze, then come home and put your heating on high, expect piano problems. Instead, slowly introduce heat into the room.
Our beginner's pianos are all at A440 concert pitch, respond to a grade 5 playing standard, and are guaranteed for three years against any technical problems. These are ideal pianos to get started on. If you then decide within the first three years that you love the piano so much you want to upgrade to a better model, we will give you what you paid for your beginner piano (less transport costs) as a trade in value on your upgraded piano. All we ask is that you follow the guidelines above and this will maintain the warranty.
