New Bently

Post by Barrie Heaton » 03 Mar 2008, 20:39

Seen the new Bentley upright and Grand in Southport today did not have long to look at them, but it looked like they are made by Yung Chang the 109 upright was £1400 and the grand was £3999.00 it was a bit smaller than the GB1
For the size and price the grand was not bad at all

Dongbei, China I think. Same as the Nordiskas.

Grands quite decent, but uprights shite.

Bentley is ok. Had new one with some sticking hammers. Took about hour to re-locate butt screws after removal for re-centreing.. They are sort of half woodscrew half metal thread and have to be lined up in all planes- an absolute nightmare .

Aye!
The best accessories for a Lindner is a litre of unleaded and a match.
