I had been searching for a Yamaha u1 piano for my granddaughters for over two weeks. My lucky day happened when I came across Paul and James. Paul talked me through the pianos and by chance had one arriving the following week. He did tell me though that if not up to standard I could not have it. The piano a 1980 Yamaha u1 has arrived with my granddaughters and to say it is as described is an understatement. The piano is amazing was delivered on time and I have two very thrilled granddaughters starting on their piano playing.
If you want great service at a great price look no further I did all the work away from the shop and received what was promised.
Thank you very much for all your advice and help with choosing the U3 piano last weekend.
It arrived safe and sound this morning.
When the piano player gets home from school this evening, he can put it through it’s paces properly, however I already think it’s sounding great!
very best wishes

We visited your shop as a family during February 2011 in our search for a reconditioned Yamaha. James was extremely patient with both boys allowing our 10 yr old son Alex to try out various pianos. We were impressed by your skill, knowledge and advice, and after visiting many establishments both locally and much further afield, decided to purchase our beloved U3H 2480051 from Little & Lampert on 10th March 2011.
This acquisition made an immediate impact on our son who improved immediately and now, aged just 14 is winning every competition he has entered. He has just finished his grade 5 exams again with distinction. Our 9 year old Christian also grade 1 with distinction. Both are performers and play locally at every opportunity. They also play woodwind instruments for the school orchestra. They are local tennis champions and excel in all sports, we have trophies everywhere but piano is paramount.
The reason for this letter is to emphasize how glad we were to be persuaded to buy such a wonderful instrument, which is so respected by our boys, and plays as well today as it ever has. Alex once wrote in a school essay that his life would be unimaginable without his piano. This has to be the best money we have ever spent!!
We are so proud of our boys and often refer to our visit to your shop and the lasting influence James had on Alex. He isn't Rick Wakeman but, well maybe one day!
Many thanks to you both. If you wish to use this letter or extracts from it please feel free to do so.

The piano is perfect - I'm extremely happy with it. It looks brand new inside and out. I played it quite a lot (although I'm only a beginner) and I really like the tone.
Thanks very much! A friend of mine at work paid £3000 for a 1968 black U1 last year (after shopping around a lot), and so he was surprised that I only paid £2495 for a 1977 U3.
"I would also like to thank you for quickly arranging a replacement, it was greatly appreciated. I am now extremely pleased with my piano stool and think it is great quality at a superb price; It has been a pleasure dealing with you."
The beauty Yamaha U3 arrived home yesterday. Love it. And also thanks James' 1st Class service.
Beautifully restored yamaha at very good price. First class service
If you want a piano then you need look no further you will not be disappointed.
I came across Little and Lampert Pianos when I was researching the internet for information about Yamaha U Series pianos. After reading their reviews ,I decided to visit their shop, I am really glad that I did, it was well worth the journey as I could not find anything locally.
Most importantly there was good tea and no high pressure selling, James let my son play for over 2 hours on the various pianos in his shop before we made our final decision,they have plenty to choose from- I ended up buying an immaculate (Hard to believe it’s not brand new) Yamaha U30AS (silent piano) from them and they managed to deliver within a week.
Little and Lampert are experts in their field, When you receive the level of service, care and attention that James and his colleagues give it is very easy to highly recommend Little and Lampert to anyone wishing to purchase a piano.
At the end of August received a Piano which I bought without seeing. It was a leap of faith! It is absolutely fabulous. We have been enjoying it for four months now. Thank you for being so honest, trustworthy and doing exactly what you said you would do. My piano tuner could not believe the quality of the piano for the price I paid. A faultless service!!
Really happy with your efforts to supply the beautiful just before Christmas. My daughter has been playing two hours a day since it arrived. Excellent service, piano in beautiful condition...
Yamaha U3 delivered yesterday. Hard to believe that it's over 30 years old- it looks brand new! Excellent communication and advice from James. Highly recommended retailer.
Purchased U3X piano for my twelve year old son. The service we received from Little and Lampert was both friendly and of a high quality. Would definitely recommend them...... the independant piano tuner who came out to do the first tune at our house informed us we got a exceptional good quality piano for the price. Many thanks James for your informed help in the shop and faultless aftersales support.
So pleased with our Yamaha U3. It was well worth travelling the distance to find you as we were unable to find anything locally to match your range of pianos and your service has been excellent. Highly recommended.
Recently purchased a Yamaha U30. I can honestly recommend Little and Lampert to anyone thinking of purchasing off the internet. The instrament is superb and I have been unable to find a piano locally that matches it for condition, tone and quality. It was delivered in the largest wagon that has ever tried to negotiate the roads to my house. The Polish driver handled the truck as if it was a matchbox toy. I have had it for about 6 months and I have not as yet found the need to retune it though now that the summer (?) has arrived I will have to get a tuner in. Only wished I lived closer to Little and Lampert so that they could do it for me. Overall a great experience and if in 20 years when I need a replacement then I know who to purchase it from.
We are delighted with our excellent Reid-Sohn upright from Little & Lampert Pianos. An ideal instrument for our needs, and a first-class service all round. Many thanks James!
I am delighted with the adjustable piano stool which I received via Parcel Force at 10.15 am. I have now assembled it carefully and
played a Mendelssohn 'Song without Words' whilst sitting on it (at the correct height) for the first time ever! It is what I have been needing for a very long time.
Thank you so much. The stool was packed beautifully and the Parcel Force delivery man who brought it to my door was friendly and helpful.
Added to all this your service was polite and efficient.
Thank you again.
