This is a really outstanding upright piano with a rich sound and a beautiful Polish Ebony finish. It is in excellent condition both on the outside and the inside (see attached photos). The action is superb for an upright and it has a unique tone. The sound is not as sharp as some Yamaha U3’s but much crisper than Kawai’s own models. It provides a rich and powerful sound that rivals many grand pianos.
Boston pianos are manufactured by Kawai but designed and sold by Steinway & Sons. the Boston line of upright pianos captures the Steinway DNA and represents a singular achievement in instrument-building: a superior playing experience at a price level never before thought possible. Before I tried this piano, I was sceptical as to how different it would sound from a Kawai, but having now owned it for 23 years, it definitely does sound different. The UP-125E model is similar in size and quality to a Yamaha U3 or a Kawai K800, and it was Boston’s flagship upright at the time it was made.
This piano would be excellent for pianists at any level, and would certainly satisfy both serious amateurs and professional pianists.
I will be really sad to part with this piano but it will need to be sold as I’m moving overseas.
In addition, I am selling the best in concert stools. A large buttoned leather seat and robust polished black base ensures comfort and perfect stability. Full height adjustment is standard.Minimum Height: 48cmMaximum Height: 58cmLength: 54cmWidth: 42cmOnly one owner.It is still in brand-new condition (stool has scuffs at the base but otherwise works perfectly). The piano has been well kept, maintained and tuned frequently. Piano finish: Polish Ebony with H=125CM, W=151CM, D=62CMHappy to help to arrange delivery if you can not find a professional to move it.
