With a rich heritage of piano innovation, tradition and craftsmanship spanning a century, Kemble pianos are well known for their rich, warm and intimate sound qualities.


Kemble Pianos was founded in 1911 by Michael Kemble in Stoke Newington, North London – the centre of the UK’s piano manufacturing activity at that time.

Michael Kemble’s son, Robert, took over the business in the 1950s and moved the company to a state-of-the-art factory in Bletchley, near today’s new city of Milton Keynes. Sales were growing rapidly and the company needed to expand production.

1968 saw the Kemble family enter into a joint venture with The Yamaha Corporation of Japan and, over the next few years, the joint partners established Yamaha-Kemble Music (UK) Ltd.

In 1985 Kemble and Co. started making a range of acoustic pianos for Yamaha, to be sold in the UK market and, two years later, Yamaha chose Kemble to become its European manufacturing partner.

Quality Kemble Pianos at Great Rates

Kemble and Co. was recognized in 1992 by the granting of The Queen’s Award for Export Achievement, the only British company in the piano industry ever to receive this accolade.

In 2011, Kemble celebrated 100 years of designing and making fine pianos.

We are justly famous for our rich and distinctive “European” sound — a characteristic largely attributable to the quality of the wood used in our soundboards. We use “Strunz” Bavarian Spruce soundboards which come from sustainable managed forests and are widely regarded as the best tonewood available. The stability of the crown (curvature) of the soundboard is also important – to maintain this we use individually shaped spruce ribs. Our skilled technicians carefully “tone” each of the premium felt hammer heads as part of the final preparation process.
