Up for sale is a Kemble Quantum II upright piano, owned from new since purchase in 2005 (original documentation available on request). 

It’s in excellent condition aside from a few minor cosmetic marks (please see pictures). 

These pianos were made in the UK at Kemble’s (since closed) factory where Yamaha models were also produced. The Quantum was one of the more high end models that Kemble produced (it was part of their Designer Collection at the time) and is said to have a similar action to a Yamaha U1, with a superior case and warmer sound. I was told that the Kembles were given particular attention to detail when building compared to the Yamahas. As you can see from the images, the case has a unique music stand mechanism which also doubles as a sound hole when it is moved out into position and allows the piano to open up in sound. The top lid also has a retractable mounting bracket which allows the lid to be opened slightly, further opening up the sound. 

The action and tone are excellent with even response across the register. There is a practice pedal which can be locked into position - this drops a felt strip in between the hammers and strings and not only reduces the volume but also sounds great as a sound in its own right.
I still have the original Kemble brochure and their description states:
"The 124cm Quantum II has dramatic straight lines and with its music tray which also works as a sound escape system it sensitively combines the best of form and function"

Dimensions are: 

152 x 124 x 63 (cm) (W x H x D) 

Viewings and demos welcome! Please get in touch with any questions. Item is located nr Loughborough, Leicestershire LE12.

Piano move / delivery to be arranged at buyer’s expense. 


I have a short playing demo video available on Vimeo but Reverb doesn't seem to allow links to be posted here - get in touch if you would like to see and I can try to send the link.
