Our experience and expertise is second to none. We sell only Pianos; your piano purchase is special to us and would love to continue the after care for years to come!

Rud Ibach Sohn boudoir grand piano which has been fully restored with traditional materials and techniques. Here at Dorset Pianos Ltd we believe in rebuilding with strict traditional methods and materials where possible, we only choose some of the best pianos in the world and make sure when sourcing pianos for restorations that the soundboard has a crown and the plank is sound also that the soundboard ribs and bridge are all in good structural order. We have been in the piano renovation business for nearly 70 years and our experience over the years has enabled us to keep loyal to the original intentions of the piano maker and keeping the heart and soul of the piano in tact, which is the soundboard. So many restored pianos out there no longer have their original soundboard so there for are no longer the piano that is named on the piano sadly meaning those pianos no longer have their known tone.

First class service from Nigel at Dorset Pianos. Within 2 days of my initial enquiry he arranged a viewing of the many... beautiful pianos in stock at his Blandford showroom and just 2 days after that had my chosen piano delivered. This is the second piano I have bought from Nigel and can’t speak highly enough of him. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️read more

Great service from start to finish from Nigel, we bought our first baby grand and are very pleased with it. It was... fascinating to visit the workshop and see all the beautiful instruments there. We look forward to seeing Nigel for the first tuning, which is another great benefit of the purchase from Dorset Pianos, with personal aftercare and the opportunity to upgrade when our playing improves! Many thanks and 100% + more

Fantastic experience of working with Nigel to make our dreams become reality. Great sales, service, delivery... end-to-end, and nice to chat over options with someone so obviously knowledgeable and passionate - but never over "salesy" in approach. Thanks Nigel. WE LOVE OUR GL-10 🙂read more
