Comments

Extremely varied prolific British maker spanning over 200 years. There are some very old Collard & Collard pianos still in use, especially grands. Collard & Collard actions vary a lot. I once went to a lecture by an ex Collard factory worker, who said “their action department was a joke”. This may be a bit unfair as there are some Collards from 1920 onwards that are very well made. Most Collards have a good rich tone. However we wouldn’t recommend restoration of most grands and uprights made before 1920. In 1929 the company was bought by Chappell and then Kemble and the name “Collard and Collard” appears on some modern Chappell and Kemble pianos and after 2010 on some Far Eastern pianos.
