Comments

Kemble is a British firm, varied in quality but best are very good. Some older ones are overdampers. Kemble Minx minipianos well made but have “spinet” actions and therefore the keys are too short to give much control. If you’re looking for a small piano, then the Kemble “Compact” is one of the best very small 7 octave pianos in the UK, measuring less than 52 inches in length and having an 85 note keyboard (sufficient for all grades of playing). We normally have one of these in stock, but if not, please leave us your details and we’ll let you know when the next one comes in. Kemble pianos also manufacture some Yamaha upright pianos; you can normally tell which ones were made by them as they carry the suffix “N” to the model number, eg P110N.
