The Cavendish Contemporary model offers sleek, modern contoured lines and a hand-finished ebony, high-gloss finish on the exterior. At 121cm high, this sets the traditional dimensions of an upright piano. The key length, soundboard area and string length are all optimum to produce the power, dynamic range and subtleties of a superb all-round piano. ‘The traditional English makers knew what they were doing,’ says Adam Cox at Cavendish. ‘For many reasons this seems the “natural” dimensions for a piano and gives us the opportunity to create the mellow warm tone we require.’
Particular attention is paid to the exact weighting of keys. Like all the processes of Cavendish piano building, this is done by hand in the Yorkshire Dales-based factory. Each individual key of the Contemporary model is weighted for each individual piano, giving the best playing experience. ‘Every piano is different’ says Cox, ‘and this ideal is at the heart of every piano we build – each piano truly is unique.’
The Cavendish Contemporary is British built to the highest standards without compromise. Perhaps that’s one reason why this model won the ‘Best Piano’ category in the prestigious Music Industry Association’s awards.
