Welcome To Richard
Lawson Pianos

Whether you’re a seasoned concert performer, an enthusiastic home player or just starting out on your piano playing journey, the team here at Richard Lawson Pianos are here to help. Backed by over 40 years of piano passion and expertise, we have an enviable range of new and expertly refurbished pianos for sale by world-renowned piano manufacturers such as YamahaKawai, Shigeru Kawai and Petrof.

Is there any sound more enchanting than the evocative playing of a piano’s keys? Few instruments have such an impressive, dynamic range – able to be both delicate and yet so intensely powerful. It makes sense then, that with an instrument capable of so much, finding the right one for you and your unique playing style and needs, is essential. And it makes even more sense to shop with the experts.

Our piano collection extends from popular Yamaha U1 and U3 upright pianos, all the way up to handcrafted grand pianos, such as the Steinway Grand and Yamaha’s CF Concert Grand. We are also proud to supply various Yamaha Disklavier pianos, modern reproducing pianos with an excellent array of electronic recording and playback features. Whatever you’re searching for we can help you to find it.

Striking the right note

We recognise that everyone’s piano needs are different, with varying skill levels, budgets and available space. Which is why we pride ourselves on offering such a wide range of competitively priced piano makes and models.

Unsure whether you’re ready to commit to buying a piano? Then why not hire one instead? We offer a great piano hire scheme, allowing you to decide whether you’re ready to invest or to buy in the confidence that you’re choosing the right piano for you.

Perhaps you already have an instrument but instead, you’re searching for piano stools and accessories, a reliable tuning service or a way of safely moving your piano from A-B? Whatever it is you need, we’re confident we can help.

    Richard Lawson Pianos came highly recommended to us and Richard didn't disappoint. From our initial visit to the showroom through to delivery and on-going service, he was so helpful and informative. The showroom is incredible and well … More worth a visit to try before you buy.

  • Avatar Jeremy Holmes ★★★★★ 5 months ago
    I have nothing but praise for Richard and his team at Richard Lawson pianos. I found out about them quite recently in an article at the back of International Piano magazine, and was delighted to see that they had relatively recently opened … More a huge showroom in Amersham, close to where I live.My first contact was to get their technician, Rick, to come and tune my upright Kemble piano, and after a couple of emails, we found a convenient time and date, and Rick came and did a splendid job at a very competitive price. So, if you need you piano tuned or looked at, please think of Rick.As I then proceeded to play it more, I came to realise that good as this piano was, it simply was not "the instrument" for me or for my rather small living area, so I started to look at top end digital pianos, and found that Richard stocks one of the leading models, the Kawai DG30. I made an appointment by email, and came to the showrooms, where the very friendly and expert Colin let me try the instrument out at my leisure, and also demonstrated it himself (he is a very good pianist!). Once it was clear I was going to buy this instrument, we discussed and agreed a part exchange for my Kemble. This was on a Friday, and by the following Wednesday, I had the new instrument delivered, unboxed, and assembled at home, and my Kemble taken away by their excellent removal team. I am delighted with the new purchase, and really looking forward to getting more familiar with it, and getting back to regular playing.Every step here has been a pleasure - on top of the excellent service in person, Richard and especially Colin have been incredibly responsive on email and phone to ensure things happened smoothly and quickly. I would unreservedly recommend them to anyone interested in a piano, whether, acoustic or digital, upright or grand - their range in the showroom is astounding!Jeremy

  • Avatar Steph ★★★★★ 7 months ago
    I bought a piano (Kawai Anytime X upright) from Richard a number of years ago and he has been a shining example of customer focused care. During purchase he was very helpful and knowledgeable (he really knows his stuff about the physics, … More materials, inner mechanical workings, and so on involved in a piano). After purchase he’s been very responsive to my queries and always goes that extra mile to help.
    I recently moved flats, and went back to him for piano moving services (since I was very happy with the service when they delivered the piano after I bought it), and that was fantastic too - those guys had my very heavy piano out the flat, navigating what turned out to be a rather awkward stairwell, in 15 minutes!! They are fully equipped and strapped my piano in safely with proper quilted covering.
    His logistics team was really great too on the day. Easy to contact and very kind and understanding about the stresses of moving!
    I would recommend Richard Lawson Pianos to anyone considering buying, or moving, a piano.

  • Avatar Rickardo Santana ★★★★★ 9 months ago
    I have no idea of Pianos but do have an experienced teacher for my Son and a second opinion from a musician who spent many years in the London Philharmonic orchestra.
    The Yamaha U3 I bought for my son have great tone in excellent condition
    … More at a very competitive price.
    I have no idea so I know I have been a complete nuisance to deal with. I asked many questions , some of which I didn't understand (That is the danger of google).
    I wanted a new instrument on a low tight budget.
    Colin and Richard are not pushy salesmen they do not need to be they are backed by a solid reputation, what they are is caring , honest, patient and good listeners. I got more that what i wanted.
    I expected the delivery to be cumbersome but that was smoother that flying to New York first class using a limousine service. Again experienced humble gentlemen in and out in minutes with no issues.
    I would not hesitate to recommend Richard Lawson Pianos to any potential buyer or seller and you will have a great experience.

    Many thanks to Richard and the men who delivered my new piano. I'm over the moon. Got a great deal on the Shigeru SK5 which is an amazing sounding instrument and a dream to play. There is a vast choice of pianos and digital pianos … More at Richard's warehouses at great prices. He has gone out of his way to help and make everything possible with attention to every detail. Always a pleasure to deal with, I recommend anyone looking to anyone to check him out. There are so many more pianos in stock than on the website, with something to suit everybody.

    Fantastic service, and we're delighted with the Yamaha grand piano we've bought from Richard Lawson Pianos. Richard met us late one weekday evening to accommodate our schedules, he took the time to answer all our questions and … More didn't come across as trying to sell in the slightest (which in a showroom is very refreshing). He's responsive, knowledgeable and friendly. Their showroom is very impressive and has a very wide variety of different pianos.

    Have a large inventory of pianos each with a unique and different touch and sound. Sure enough, after an hour and a half of trying piano after piano, I found one I was pleased with. Sales manager was very patient and helpful, even demonstrating … More on some of the pianos so I could just listen rather than play. Delivery was prompt and overall, I am pleased with my purchase.

    I really cannot thank Colin at Richard Lawson Pianos enough for his professionalism, willingness and above all patience (I am a very fussy about my pianos!) in buying my first grand piano. The showroom looked immaculate, the best piano … More showroom I've ever been to, even better than Steinway, London! The delivery was quick and efficient, the pianos were in tune and a pleasure to play and to find this perfect one was a blessing. It's amazing in its new home and I already can't wait for the first tuning! Thank you again for everything, you have been wonderful!

    Richard Lawson Pianos, what a tremendous service they provided.My family and I cannot thank Colin (Sales Manager) enough for such a great buying experience. As a first time buyer, Colin was very patient and explained all the benefits of … More the different pianos in our desired price range. No pushing or up-selling at all, he was entirely focused on helping us select the most appropriate piano for our children.We have no hesitation in recommending Richard Lawson Pianos and will definitely look at going back when the time is right to step up to a grander piano.

    I could not recommend Richard Lawson Pianos highly enough. From initial telephone consultation through to showroom visit and delivery - Richard provided one of the best services I have ever experienced buying pianos. Both my wife and I … More have been professional pianists for nearly 20 years each and we were both hugely impressed. We were so pleased with the service that we received we encouraged our employers to purchase all their new pianos from Richard. They too have experienced the same high level of service and attention to detail that made the purchase of our Yamaha C3 such a pleasure. Thank you very much Richard.

    I purchased a Yamaha YU33 from Richard several months ago. Very happy with the service and price - the instrument itself is wonderful.

  • Avatar Victoria Wong ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    Bought a Yamaha UX upright about 2 years ago. He was very helpful, patient and honest with us. Love the 0% finance deal and was incredibly generous with bargaining, giving us a discount on top of free delivery to Manchester and the stool … More thrown in for good measure too haha. I’d say it was well worth the 4 hour drive there and back! If selling/buying my piano I would be a happy return customer 👌🏻 keep up the good work Richard!

  • Avatar James Letham ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    Buying a grand piano is not usually a spur-of-the-moment decision, but in my case it almost was! Having enjoyed playing a Yamaha C7 and seeing that Richard had one for sale at a very good price I made contact. I narrowed my choice to … More the C7 or C6, both of which he was willing, on payment of a deposit, to reserve until I could get down to London (I live 35 miles south of Edinburgh). The chose day was immediately after the day of railway chaos, but Richard contacted me on the train and offered an alternative route via Watford junction, meeting me there, and taking me to try both pianos (including a welcome cup of tea!). Decision made (at a leisurely pace), he kindly drove me back to the station. It took a few days to organise my finance, but he was very understanding. With everything in place, the piano was scheduled to arrive on Thursday, 29th August, and the piano removal company kept me fully informed of the likely arrival time. The two guys were excellent (yes - just 2 for a 400kg piano!) and took a great deal of care in bringing it into the house and setting it up. From my very first contact with Richard through to the e-mails following delivery I have nothing but positive comments and would thoroughly recommend Richard Lawson Pianos - and distance is no object! It goes without saying that I'm loving the piano!!

    I recently bought a Yamaha CLP 675 from Richard Lawson and I’m so happy with both the service and the instrument! I had great advice from Richard, a very competitive quote and upon delivery date he even put the instrument together in his … More workshop for me and had it delivered to the second floor. Definitely recommend this piano house and couldn’t have wished for a better place to buy from!

    Simply the BEST!!Once having discovered Richard Lawson Pianos many years ago, we have always recommended them to all the students, parents and friends of our music school.The prices are fair, the instruments in excellent condition and … More the service is second to none.. The delivery crews are absolutely no-fuss complete experts and Richard himself is a ' mountain mover' in the beyond -the-call-of-duty department, honest and kind in all his dealings.Can't recommend this firm too highly. Thank you Richard Lawson Pianos for all the help you've given to us/me, very much appreciated.Gail Smart

    I had lost one of the rubber stoppers on my baby grand yamaha piano. Unsure of where to get them, I contacted Richard and he was nothing but helpful with sourcing and providing them. I only contacted him yesterday and already the stoppers … More are ordered and on their way to me. Great customer service and great knowledge about the fantastic pianos he has to sell. Definitely the place to go.

    My wife and I could not be happier with the service and quality of the Yamaha G3 piano we bought from Richard Lawson Pianos at the end of April 2018. The piano is wonderful, in immaculate condition. It plays and sounds great and it was … More a very reasonable price.

    A wide selection of reconditioned and new pianos with excellent service; helpful but never pushy or impatient, I took as long as I wanted to try the pianos without feeling pressured. Delivery was arranged quickly and this was efficient … More and professional. I bought an upright from a selection of about 20 and will go back when I want a grand.

    My Yamaha U3UX upright piano was delivered today and I am very happy with it and the service I received. I have an impossible schedule at the moment and in my search for a piano, I found Richard always made himself available to discuss … More my budget and options. I visited many shops (did a lot of driving) and did find that Richards pianos were just that bit better with regards to wear and tear. I noticed that the refurbished felt and hammers looked in better condition, as did the piano casing. I'm not an expert but I have looked at over 50 pianos now. I'm also happy with the price, and believe me, I spend many many hours and days searching. I hope my review helps!

He delivered really excellent service; he was polite and efficient to work with and his delivery guys were courteous and careful.
