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

We bought a beautiful piano from Nigel - it plays wonderfully, was a great price and was delivered within days. The... advice and guidance given when choosing from the wide range in the showroom was super honest (we wanted a starter piano and not too expensive) and very well considered. Totally 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
