Comments

About 90% of A Bord pianos in the UK are small straight strung overdampers, and are therefore quite basic. However, they are quite attractive, usually walnut or rosewood, and well made, with a sweet tone. In at least 50% of Bord pianos the tuning pins are loose; replacing these costs far more than the value of the piano. If you’re looking for a small traditional piano that looks good, then of those most common in the UK we recommend a small iron framed Broadwood or a Bechstein model 9. After 1960 the name was taken over by Pleyel but few of these can be found in the UK.
