The June Auction on Saturday 28th

The BPA team had a very busy week last week with the June auction being in the foresight. All the pianos were delivered into the auction rooms and set up by the very reliable Gilberts piano removers who we work closely with at each auction.

 Image

 

Image

 The makes included Steinway, Bechstein, Bluthner, Schimmel, Yamaha, Kawai, Kemble, Chappell, Petrof, Young Chang, Marshall & Rose and many more.

The day was very successful with some very good prices realised on pianos, and some prices that still goes to prove that bargains are obtained in the auction room!

Lot No. 3 was a year 2000 Yamaha C3 with matching duet stool shown here in the middle of the picture. The instrument was in pristine condition and could be considered show room quality. When the hammer fell the piano reached £7,000.00

Image

 

We caught a photo of Alex Borg on the admin team who was arranging & dealing with paperwork post auction, and as usual looking very smart.

Image

 A run of uprights in the auction rooms; Kemble, Yamaha, Young Chang & Yamaha. A Bluthner can be seen in the far background and the cheek of another piano on the left…do you know what make? ( You can comment below)

Image

It was nice to see new faces in the auction room as well as reliable regular customers who buy at each auction.

The next auction is in September and consignments are already on the way in so keep a keen eye on the website and on our Facebook.

A Lesser Known Piano Maker of Quality…..

Part of the team  at BPA was on the road over the weekend and an interesting conversation regarding lesser-known makers of the piano world took place.

We have all heard of Steinway, Bechstein, Yamaha, Chappell etc.… but who in todays generation has heard of Ernst Kaps ?

I’m sure that many piano enthusiasts in the autumn of their life have, and possibly played or owned a Kaps piano at some point, but the younger generation if asked would probably draw a blank face.

We Believe this is something todays generation of pianists are missing out on

Kaps was founded in 1858 by Ernst Kaps in Dresden.  A German manufacturer and distributor of pianos who used quality materials to build their instruments. Detail and class can always be seen when looking at a piano built by kaps.

In 1922 Kaps began collaboration with the piano maker Johann Kuhse.

One of the BPA team said:

“Kaps were beautifully built pianos of very high quality, the grand’s always very pleasing to play with a fairly gentle, mellow tone. The uprights especially the ‘Panzer’ system uprights were very fine pianos they rival and often surpass some of the far better known makers”.

Britannia piano auctions: Kaps Upright

This piano (circa 1905) had at some time in its life been ebonized (polished black) and just looked like any other ‘not very interesting’ piano. This is what the instrument looked like after it had been stripped back to its original colour and polished up to how it was originally.
