K-L Piano Gallery

This is a section of the Eshelby Pianos’ Piano Gallery which is intended to serve as a reference to provide insight about the huge variety and brands of pianos on the market, hopefully creating a useful resource for anyone interested in learning more about pianos. As time allows, we will be adding more details about piano manufacturers and interesting pianos that we have worked with.
These are pianos Eshelby Pianos owns or has owned since 2015. Most of these pianos are not currently available for hire or sale as they are hired out, have been sold, are awaiting restoration or are being kept as museum or personal items.
Currently available pianos are listed on our Pianos Available for Hire and Sale pages.
