A Rich-toned Piano Would Complete Your Home

Apart from the finished appearance that a handsome Piano imparts to a room, the charm of music creates an atmosphere which secures to you the greatest enjoyment a home can possibly yield.

With the coming of Winter, when bad weather keeps you indoors or friends “drop in” during the evenings, the benefit of possessing a piano is realised to the full.

Our showrooms are full of New Models and our

Easy payment System

Gives you the opportunity to secure at once the instrument you like without disturbing your savings.

Why not call to-day?
