The business of Allen & Fisher Pianos; Piano World, is predominantly that of major restoration, rebuilding, re-polishing, tuning and general servicing. Selected quality pre-owned pianos with known histories & full guarantees available. Note by appointment only.

A fleet of good pianos is available for rental and quality selected secondhand pianos are available, from time to time, for purchase with full guarantees.

The business undertakes all aspects of piano servicing and repair work with very strong emphasis on reliability, thoroughness and great attention to detail. Unlike many piano businesses every technician at Piano World must be able to play the piano. A proper apprenticeship-training scheme is in operation and staff is trained along the lines of the course recommended by the Piano Technicians Guild. Some staff have gone to Steinway in Hamburg Germany for advanced training.

    Hi Paul, Thanks for your time today - it was nice to catch up and to see the progress that's been made toward restoring our piano. To be honest, we were both astounded by quality of the work that's been done. After leaving I said to Hayley that I really felt that our choice to have you rebuild the piano had been vindicated - given the work that's been done so far, it's hard for me to imagine that we would have been able to get an equal, let alone better outcome elsewhere. It's also so clear that you and your staff are investing so much more than just time into the piano, and I'm sure I sensed an element of delight and pride in the smiles of your staff as they passed by and saw us witnessing for the first time what the piano is becoming once again. I know that I can be a hard task-master at times, but I also feel that excellence should be recognized and acknowledged. We feel that what you're doing is commendable and we're excited and looking forward to the piano's completion.

    Amy and Caylyn really enjoyed the tour of your workshop yesterday. Thanks so much for taking the time to inspire and educate the two lasses.  Amy hasn't stopped practicing since your marvelous impromptu pep talk! I'm, of course, delighted. On the drive home they asked me how I know you and exclaimed, and I quote, "he is so nice and very funny!" I'm sure your daughters will be amused.

    You have done wonders for that piano, and you are no longer allowed to call it a Steinwas!!!!! I am enjoying playing again and the neighbours have not even complained...................yet!!  I woke up in the night to check that I hadn't been dreaming.....and sure enough...the piano is really in the flat!  Thank you for all your effort and exceptional workmanship. It is much appreciated!

    Good evening, Paul. Well, what an absolute joy to come home to our beautifully refurbished piano. The transformation is way beyond my expectations! I am really THRILLED.  I simply ignored my children and sat down with my beginners' adult book and started playing immediately... So inspired. Much gratitude to you and your team.  Thank you.
