Buying A Piano
Shopping for a piano can be a daunting task, whether you're looking for a starter piano, wanting to trade in your current piano, or searching for your dream piano. It is helpful to know someone who knows pianos, how to evaluate the quality and condition, and who can advise you on how much you should pay for the piano you're considering. With 24 years in the piano business, as well as being a piano technician, I can provide detailed information and make sure you're paying a fair price. There are many differences between brands of pianos and the quality in which they are built. When considering a used piano, it's very important to know the condition and what to expect in terms of performance and maintenance. For parents wanting to start their child in piano lessons, but don't want to over spend, yet don't want to buy a piece of junk, some people will ask a friend or piano teacher for their advise. Some will try to become better informed by researching on the internet. Unfortunately, it's likely that you won't have all the information you need to make a wise investment. Some pianos can cost 10's of thousands of dollars, therefore, knowing you're getting the best price can save you hundreds or thousands. Pianos that are well built, with the highest quality of materials and workmanship, should last for generations. In the short term, you will enjoy playing your piano more, and in the long term, you will be happier with your investment, as a good quality piano will have held it's value.
