Challen of London were very good piano makers, the pianos they made are always of the highest of quality and were made to be robust and musical, reflecting their main design which was for melodic longevity, musicality, and with cabinets that are well made and aesthetically pleasing to look at. We have always found Challen pianos to be easy to work on and as a result the pianos always play well and respond to any adjustments we may have to perform, and in return the pianos are always very nice to play. This Challen of London is a beautifully made piano with beautiful tonality and it will easily take a student well beyond the grade five level.

All of the pianos in all our ranges have been completely checked over, repaired, and adjusted by concert standard technicians to make sure the pianos will play to a minimum of grade 5 standard. The touch of our beginner range pianos is responsive and immediate, it is important that when learning to play a piano that there be no hindrance from poorly performing equipment. The tone of the beginner range has been adjusted to be pleasing for the player and listener alike. Most importantly - all pianos are tuned to A440 concert pitch – this is most important when children are involved as a child relies on aural perception more than any other sense when first learning the piano or any 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.
