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.

  • Brian Walters ★★★★★ a year ago
    Richard provided an excellent personal service in helping me to choose a piano for my daughter. Unfortunately, I was too focused on quality of tone than suitability for the location of the piano in our house, and it quickly became apparent … More that the piano was too powerful for the space. This was no problem for Richard, who agreed to swap it for a size down and the exchange was made within 24 hours. Richard wasn't at all bothered that the new piano was a cheaper model - he was a gentleman to deal with throughout.
