About Us

Handel Pianos is a fifth generation family business that has specialised in selling and repairing pianos for the best part of a century.
The company was founded in Bristol in 1927 by the current owners great grandfather, Handel Lovell, who was a professional piano and accordion player as well as a highly acclaimed composer and bandleader.

In the post war years, Handel moved his business to London where his son Coe Lovell took over the day to day running of the company. In 1969, Coe’s son, Bev Lovell, opened a new shop in Staines. The current premises in Sunningdale, Berkshire were opened in 1993 and are run today by the father and son team of Bev and Chris Lovell, who are currently training up generation number five, Chris’s daughter Steph.

Here at Handel Pianos, we are passionate about helping each and every one of our customers find the perfect piano for their individual needs and are always happy to take the time to explain and demonstrate any of the functions of the instruments in our range. We don’t use any high-pressure sales techniques, and our customers are free to browse and play the instruments at their leisure.

Handel Pianos is staffed by a friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable team of professional musicians, music teachers and technicians who are always happy to answer any questions, and who between them have well over three hundred years of experience in the music industry.

At our store in Sunningdale, we stock a vast range of new and used pianos suitable for all styles of music ranging from ultra compact six octave instruments, up to full size hand crafted concert grands, and with prices starting from as little as £500, there’s something to suit all budgets.

Each and every one of our 80+ pianos come fully tuned and serviced, and every used instrument is guaranteed for a period of between one and five years, whilst all of our of our new pianos are guaranteed for between three and ten years.

Our guarantee covers your piano for any problems that may occur, excluding from the effects of central heating, which in particular can affect the soundboard, and the tuning, or wrest pin, block.

And excludes normal wear and tear.
