Ciaran W. - B. Squire upright piano
"I have given 5 stars, but if facebook would let me- I'd have to give at least 5000!!!!
I first contacted Jack back in March 2016 when I decided it was time to get myself a "proper" piano.
Jack was extremely polite, helpful, and he demonstrated an excellent knowledge of the various pianos he had on offer. He was able to help me find an excellent piano within my budget and warmly invited me down to his shop so I could try it out before buying.
As well as this, when my piano was delivered, Jack included a free stool! But he didn't stop there- inside the stool there must have been at least 6 different music books, a folder, a pencil, and the relevant business cards for Jack and for Benjamin Treuhaft (piano tuner).
The range of pianos that he has in his shop is fantastic and there is guaranteed to be something there for every level of player and price bracket. I honestly think you would struggle to find a piano shop in the rest of the UK with such excellent prices and customer service."
Amble S. - Squire & Langston upright piano
"I bought an upright piano from Jack and was really impressed with the place. He had a great range of pianos and was really knowledgable about restoring different types. He often has interesting and quirky pianos in. Cannot recommend enough. The piano was lovely by the way!"
Clare M. - Danemann baby grand piano
"I bought a stunning Baby Grand from Jack as well as two adjustable piano stools which I'm delighted with!
Being a piano teacher myself I highly recommend going to see what Jack has in stock! You are guaranteed to find a beautiful piano for an absolute bargain!!
He also recommended a great piano tuner!!!"
Carrie B. - James C. Pike upright piano
"I cannot say enough positive things about Jack and Newlands Pianos.
The customer service was fantastic - advice, support and contacts (tuner) were all gratefully recieved.
Jack helped me to pick out my first upright piano, arranged for the delivery and he spent a lot of time with me making sure I was happy with the purchase and making sure I had all the info about maintaining it after purchase.
I would be happy to recommend Jack to anyone looking for a 1-to-1 service backed up by great knowledge and a genuine passion for music.
I have had my piano for over a year now and am ver happy that I went to Jack for help.
Olivia H. - Peatland upright piano
"Jack is a great business owner, going above and beyond to please his customers. I bought my piano last year from Jack and he was very patient and informative when helping me to choose the right instrument for me. The shop is well stocked and there is a lot of variety to suit all budgets. Highly recommended!"
Chris W. - Marshall & Rose upright piano
"Excellent service and piano. Wouldn't hesitate going back again when I decide to upgrade. Top class."
Barry P. - Rich. Lipp. baby grand piano
"Jack's just spent 30 or so minutes of his evening kicking ideas around for my next piano. He's been really helpful, but what I appreciate most is that "out of hours" support that most companies won't entertain.
Well done, Newlands :)
Chris H. - John Broadwood semi concert grand piano
"When I was in the market to buy a piano (pretty large old grand) Jack helped me choose the one I wanted.
He has a great knowledge of products old and new and is a very inviting person to deal with. His aftersales support is fantastic and he is always willing to go that extra mile.
When I am ready for my next piano purchase it will definitely be from Newlands!"
Will H. - Pianist
"I play here quite often and the pianos are always fully tuned and ready to play.
The pianos are tuned and fixed up so that you can enjoy your piano for many years after buying with Newlands Pianos. There is a vast selection of grands and uprights and all come with fantastic service from Jack, owner of Newlands Pianos with all the knowledge and information you need to know when buying a piano.
Would definitely recommend to anyone who wishes to buy a piano whether at a professional level or someone just starting off."
Laura R. - Danemann upright piano

"Very reliable shop. Jack was extremely helpful, arranged delivery and kept me updated through the process until the piano was delivered. Delivery was on time and the piano was in mint condition, better than described. Highly recommended."
Jade M. - Marshall & Rose upright
"Jack was really helpful throughout the whole process; from help in choosing the right piano and stool through to liaising with the delivery team. He kept me up to date throughout, which gave me great peace of mind - I would thoroughly recommend. Thank you, Jack!"
David H. - Zender upright
"I was really impressed with the selection of Pianos at Newlands Pianos. The knowledge and enthusiasm of the owner was very impressive. I was looking at the budget end and that didn't disappoint. I bought but then changed my mind which might have been a problem but John the owner accommodated my indecision and allowed a trade in and I purchased a more suitable and slightly more expensive instrument. I left a very happy and satisfied customer."
Sally R. - Vintage upright
"Bought a lovely walnut upright from Jack at Newlands Pianos. It's ideal for what I want. Jack was very helpful and his communication was great. Would recommend buying a piano from here."
Jenna C. - Starr upright
"I absolutely LOVE my new/old piano. I first saw it advertised for sale last year but the timing was wrong and ultimately was no longer for sale. I was gutted. So you can imagine how shocked/surprised and excited to see it for sale again at the beginning of the month. Timing was perfect. I went and viewed it on Friday there, paid for it and.....it was delivered yesterday (Monday)! Super quick delivery. The piano (huge upright made in Richmond Indiana in � in 1908) is in great condition, looks amazing, been tuned. Everything's great. The customer service was and still is great! Jack is always there to answer any questions. He has a great selection of pianos. I highly highly highly recommend!!!! Many thanks again!"
Shona P. - Kemble baby grand
"Fantastic service by Jack at Newlands pianos today. Approachable, knowledgable and not in the slightest bit pushy! Would highly recommend making the journey to Edinburgh if looking to purchase a piano - whatever your budget they will help you buy the right piano for you!"
Anna R. - Chappell baby grand
"We bought a beautiful second hand Chappell baby grand piano from Newlands Pianos. We are delighted with it and the service we received. We visited the Edinburgh showroom after spotting it on line and knew that we were in safe hands when we met Jack. The piano is beautifully restored and was delivered to us in Glasgow with no trouble, and at a time that suited. Happy customers! Thanks Newlands Pianos. We would highly recommend you."
Claire B. - Piano teacher
"I went to assist my pupil's parents in choosing a piano for their daughter.
I was immediately impressed with the collection and variety of pianos for sale. All were tuned and restored to impressive standards. There is a great collection for all budgets.
Jack was very friendly and incredibly helpful to the parents. He anticipated and met all of their needs, and it is obvious that it is Jack's passion for piano and helping other pianist find their instrument that drives his business. He is incredibly knowledgable about his instrument and maintenance, and I will be recommending Newlands pianos to all my students from now on.
Thank you Jack, I'm sure Rebecca will be thrilled with her new piano!"
Joanne W. - Welmar upright
"Absolutely delighted with the piano I purchased from Jack at Newlands Pianos. Having not played in a few years, Jack was extremely helpful when it came to choosing the right piano for me to get back playing again - and could not be happier with the Welmar that I picked.
Jack kept me up to date while I was waiting delivery, and was friendly and approachable throughout the entire process.
Could not recommend Edinburgh Pianos highly enough for anyone looking to purchase a piano."
Joanna M. - Steinway upright
"Our piano has just arrived, and we are absolutely delighted with it!! Jack was super helpful - we were really impressed with how knowledgeable he was. He listened really well to when we told him what we were looking for, and gave us some rally good options. We didn't feel under any pressure to buy anything. He was super patient with us when we were faffing around trying to choose between the pianos. He even played (beautifullly to boot!) each of the pianos we were interested in, to help us make our decision! The payment, delivery and post- delivery customer service has gone so smoothly as well. Highly recommended!! Thank you Jack!!!"
Laura W. - Broadwood barless grand
"Jack was really professional and helpful, giving really good advice, and with really interesting information about all his pianos! I came into the store, and within 30 minutes had tried nearly 10 pianos, and fallen in love with one. I was really impressed by the range of pianos on hand, some of which were truly of excellent quality and not at too high a price. Jack was also a great help for organising the transport and delivery of the piano, and also recommended piano tuners etc... Cannot recommend enough!"
Antoinette F. - Challen baby grand
"So impressed by the whole process. I am a total novice and Jack answered every question and helped us find the perfect piano in terms of quality, price and look. Would definitely highly recommend."
James F. - Rich. Lipp. upright
"Just bought a lovely old Lipp upright from Newlands and we are thrilled. Jack clearly loves and knows his pianos and it was a real pleasure to do business with him. He's highly efficient - he returns calls immediately, is happy to open shop at weekends if necessary - and the turnaround was super-quick, including the delivery which he organized. It's rare to walk away from a transaction like this filled with such confidence. I am also certain, after my own research, that his pianos are good value. As he points out, he has no formal showroom in town, just an industrial estate unit down Pilrig St, which means low overheads, reflected in the final piano price. If you want a piano in Edinburgh, this is without question the place to go."
Jennifer R. - Petrof upright
"Newlands Pianos has a great selection of pianos to try. Jack is very knowledgable about pianos, enthusiastic about what he does and was great at finding what I was looking for. He was very efficient at replying to my queries and providing information. I’m very happy with my purchase and the piano was delivered only 2 days after I bought it. Many thanks."
Natalie M. - Fazer upright
"Absolutely delighted with my new-old Fazer piano, it plays beautifully. Jack’s passion for his work shines through and his professionalism and standard of workmanship is excellent. Would highly recommend Newlands Pianos."
Leslie Castle - Collard grand
"Jack really went above and beyond his brief to get a grand piano into Leslie Castle, in Aberdeenshire. On a snowy day, he managed a particularly tricky delivery safely and professionally, we couldn't have done it without him! Price was good value for money too and communications quick and efficient. Thank you."
David O - Albert Fahr grand
"Just taken delivery of my Albert fahr grand from jack, service was top quality,great guy. What an amazing Aladdin's cave of pianos would not buy a piano from anywhere else now thanks"
Helen A - Barratt & Robinson upright
"Jack's enthusiasm and knowledge of pianos is inspiring. Thanks for your help - we're really happy with our upright."
Vivien S - B. Squire upright
"Newlands Pianos has an ethos that every single family should be able to have a piano in their home, and to that end, Jack has pianos of all types, ages and conditions. However, the one thing you can be assured of when doing business with Jack is that you will get honest, knowledgeable advice, and that whatever piano you end up with, whether it's at the lower or higher end of the price range, it will be cleaned up and tuned to perfection so that is the best that it can be. Newlands Pianos will not charge you silly money either - the price you pay will be the right price, and a fair price. It's not often you come across a business that is not only in it for the joy of being able to do the work that they do, but also so that they can bring happiness to their customers' homes at a price they can afford. I would never go elsewhere now and can wholeheartedly recommend this amazing place."
Jenny M - Squire & Longson upright
"Jack, thank you for all your help and sharing your expertise to get an item just right for us. Beautiful piano and great delivery service too."
Sally K - Concert stool
"Just taken delivery of a beautiful red leather piano stool. Excellent and efficient service from Jack every step of the way. He was very helpful in sending me photos of the stool set in front of several different pianos that are similar to mine so that I could see how it would look with my piano. Stool arrived promptly and very well packaged. Highly recommended"
Carole A - Knight upright
"You cannot find a more competent, helpful and nicer person than Jack Newlands. I bought a practice piano 4 years ago for my daughter who was just starting to learn piano and I naturally came back to Jack when I needed an upgrade. I bought this beautiful Knight walnut upright piano which has a lovely sound and will do her until grade 8 (if she chooses to go that far!).
Jack is passionate about his job, he is very responsive and make himself available at all times for his customers (we went to his showroom on a Sunday..).
If you are looking for a piano, look no further, you will find with Jack a nice welcome, good and honest advice as well as fair price."

James W - Eavestaff upright

Kumar S - Kawai grand
"Amazing selection of pianos at a range of very reasonable prices. Jack was patient and helpful as I picked out a piano over the course of a whole morning and amazing in storing it for months on end until I could get it delivered. Once I could, it only took a few days to get it delivered. Could not recommend higher, no matter the size of your budget."

Flexible with payments. Delivery nice and easy quick and on time. well there's nothing I would change. Thank you for all. You're brilliant Jack!"
Martin M. - Kayserburg upright
"Would highly recommend!
I was buying my first piano and was worried that the process would be intimidating. However, Jack was so welcoming, approachable and patient. He took the time to find out what I wanted, set out the various options and gave me the time and space over the course of a few weeks to make a decision. No hard sell at all.
Delivery was fast, painless and professional."

It is everything that was promised and a bit more...a beautiful instrument and the sound is like being at a concert, 1st class, front row. Service all way through. Noting that you can't ask or can't be granted. Excellent and swift service from owner and help. Thank you Jack...we are so happy for the piano in our little church up here."
