\u00e2\u0080\u00a2 Kemble Pianos was founded in 1911 by Michael Kemble in Stoke Newington, North London - the centre of the UK\u0092s piano manufacturing activity at that time.<\/p>\n\n

\u00e2\u0080\u00a2 Michael Kemble\u0092s son, Robert, took over the business in the 1950s and moved the company to a state-of-the-art factory in Bletchley, near today\u0092s new city of Milton Keynes. Sales were growing rapidly and the company needed to expand production.<\/p>\n\n

\u00e2\u0080\u00a2 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.<\/p>\n\n

\u00e2\u0080\u00a2 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.<\/p>\n\n

\u00e2\u0080\u00a2 Founder Michael\u0092s grandson, Brian Kemble, was appointed Managing Director in 1986.<\/p>\n\n

\u00e2\u0080\u00a2 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.<\/p>\n\n

\u00e2\u0080\u00a2 In 2009 Kemble collaborated with Austrian piano manufacture\nB\u00f6sendorfer and released the Special Edition Chopin model in celebration of the 200th anniversary of Chopin's birth.<\/p>\n\n

\u00e2\u0080\u00a2 2009 - Manufacturing of Kemble pianos moved to Yamaha's\nfactories in the Far East.<\/p>\n\n

\u00e2\u0080\u00a2 2011 - Kemble celebrates 100 years of designing and making fine pianos.<\/p>\n","dealer_locator":"Dealer Locator","product_registration":"Product Registration","contact_us":"Contact Us","download_brochure":"Download Brochure","serial_numbers":"Serial Numbers","guarantees":"Guarantees","competitions":"Competitions","page_contact_us":"

TO THE OWNER OF A KEMBLE PIANO<\/h2>\n\n

Thank you for purchasing a Kemble Piano. The piano is among the most versatile of musical instruments, but it is also one of the most complex and delicate. Kemble pianos are extraordinarily rugged-built by a combination of traditional craftsmanship and advanced acoustic technology. But even the finest instrument needs proper care to give long life and dependable service. Please read this booklet carefully and follow its instructions, and you will be rewarded with years of pleasurable satisfaction.<\/p>\n\n

PROVIDE ENOUGH VENTILATION<\/h2>\n\n

Pianos need ventilation, but the wrong kind of ventilation can damage them. The best location for your piano is in the center of the room or against a wall, which divides two rooms. If possible, avoid placing it next to an exterior wall where outside weather conditions might cause tone quality and volume to suffer. If there is no other choice, however, at least make sure that the piano has adequate ventilation on all sides.<\/p>\n\n

AVOID WINDOWS<\/h2>\n\n

Try not to place the piano near a window. Its cabinet is made of wood and must be protected against direct sunlight, humidity and sudden changes in temperature. Windows that open on the out-of doors offer the least protection. If you must place the piano near a window use a heavy curtain over the window for protection.<\/p>\n\n

AVOID HEAT<\/h2>\n\n

Keep the piano away from sources of heat such as radiators or hot air registers. They may damage the finish and internal parts causing tone and balance to deteriorate. Make sure that no radiant heat or hot air draft strikes the piano directly.<\/p>\n\n

PROPER CONDITIONS MEAN BETTER SOUND<\/h2>\n\n

Pianos work best and sound best when the temperature and humidity are right. Proper ventilation is also important. Generally speaking, a relative humidity of between 50 and 60 percent is ideal for pianos. The use of materials such as wood, felt and cloth in piano construction means that many parts are quite delicate. If not properly cared for, they can be damaged easily. Therefore we are unable to assume responsibility for damage resulting from abuse or harsh treatment.<\/p>\n\n

HOW HUMIDITY AFFECTS A PIANO<\/h2>\n\n

Felt, cloth, leather and the precision wood parts \u0096 some of them machined to tolerances as fine as 1\/100 mm \u0096 used in such critical parts of the piano as the action are extremely sensitive to humidity. Too much humidity will result in dull hammer action and unclear tones, rusting of internal parts and sticking keys. Before this happens the piano should be repaired.<\/p>\n\n

HOW TO PROTECT AGAINST EXCESSIVE MOISTURE<\/h2>\n\n

Your dealer can advise you how best to compensate for climatic conditions in your area. However, here are a few general tips for proper care. On cloudy or rainy days close all windows in the piano room. Also, be sure to close the top board each time after playing. The piano\u0092s thick cloth cover absorbs moisture in damp or rainy weather and should be taken off and dried on clear days. Be especially careful about excessive moisture if you live in one of the following places:<\/p>\n\n
