The latest addition to our grand piano range was off travelling the globe almost straight away to show itself to the world for the first time in more than 120 years of Niendorf history. 29-year-old master piano maker Friedmar Lohöfener spent an intense thirteen months designing the Niendorf concert grand 275. Thanks to the support of a passionate and highly skilled team, already twenty souls strong, we were able to build the instrument in only five months.
Before sending the grand off to the Music China international trade fair in Shanghai in October 2017, we celebrated the 275’s launch on 7 September 2017 at the hands of internationally renowned master pianist Jörg Demus here at the factory’s own concert hall. The famous pianist has been convinced of Niendorf quality and the skill of our piano makers for decades and was especially taken with this grand piano. To quote him: “I enjoyed it all – the grand, the audience and bringing something new like this to the world.” Touched and honoured, Jörg Demus masterfully played the concert grand 275’s first piano sonatas, drawing forth rich and warm music to a storm of applause from the dealers, suppliers, music aficionados and regional press present, with regional TV and radio broadcaster RBB covering the event live.
Celebrities from the music business also graced the audience, with Anna Loos and keyboarder Ritchie Barton from the band Silly there to enjoy the show. Just like Jörg Demus, who played Niendorf instruments back when he was a student, Anna Loos, too, remembers the traditional brand from her past. Her grandmother owned a brown Niendorf piano with two candle holders. “It’s great to see such things survive,” she said. The instruments “are high-class, not run-of-the-mill” and she is more than happy to act as brand ambassador for them.

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.
