Comments

Highly respected British maker. Best between about 1960 and 1985; They were the only make of piano in Steinway Hall alongside Steinway, as in our opinion Steinway didn’t have a good small upright piano at the time. They have a rich warm tone, refined firm touch and are extremely stable with central heating. Knight pianos dating before 1960 have a more dated style of casework. Apart from a few baby grands nearly all Knight pianos are modern upright pianos from 100 to 110 cm high. Colours are about 65% mahogany, 20% teak, 10% walnut, 5% other. If you are looking for a small upright piano, then a Knight is an excellent choice. We usually have at least two or three Knight uprights in stock. NB Knight pianos don’t stand flush against the wall as the back castors are on a piece of wood offset behind the piano. This is in order to make the piano more stable as they have a very heavy frame. This wood protrudes about 2 inches at the back.
