About Us

Richard Lawson Pianos have been involved in the piano trade for four decades, and we bring a wealth of expertise to the piano buying process. This experience ranges from the technical side of piano refurbishment and set up, to a deep understanding of how that effects the nuances of sound and the responsiveness of touch where the pianist is concerned. We supply a wide range of new and refurbished pianos starting at £1,295, moving up to the immensely popular Yamaha U1 and U3 Upright Pianos, beyond to the Yamaha C3 and C5 Grands, and even the Yamaha CF Concert Grand.

We also stock Steinway Grand and Upright Pianos, in addition to many other famous piano brands, such as Kawai, Shigeru Kawai, Petrof and Bösendorfer. Our clients range from beginners up to International Concert Pianists. Some of our regular clients are well known and prefer the discreet service that we can offer, if required.

Many schools and local authorities choose Richard Lawson Pianos as a trusted supplier who can be relied upon to offer 100% satisfaction, as well as highly competitive prices. We have sold thousands of Yamaha U1’s and U3’s to schools, for instance, over the years.

    Had a great experience buying from Richard Lawson pianos. I phoned on a weekend, and was able to book in to try out some pianos late that same afternoon.
    Colin was very helpful, showing me the various options that met my criteria, and
    … More the closest equivalents for those that weren't yet in stock. He patiently let me go back and forth between pianos myself, answering my many questions, politely helping me to overcome some of my preconceptions about certain brands, as well as demonstrating what each piano sounds like in the hands of a skilled pianist.
    Purchasing was easy, with RLP taking a deposit to reserve the piano (which could be transferred or refunding pending checks that my piano would fit), and then they kept me up to date up until delivery. I was able to add items to my order last minute before delivery too.
    All in all an excellent purchasing experience, and I'm delighted with the piano I received.
