Comments

Bentley was one of the first British firms to make small uprights. Those in service today are of generally poor quality and can develop action problems such as hammer felts coming unglued or loose balance pins. There are a few taller uprights which are average to good. In the 40s and 50s they made a “Bungalow” model, which we rate about 45-50. The modern Chinese piano is totally different and is not rated here.
