Our upright piano prices start at around $3000, which is the minimum one should pay for a modern piano in good playing condition. If your budget is lower, we recommend not wasting money on buying an inferior instrument but instead look at renting a piano for some time. This is a very popular option as it keeps all choices open for the future — and we 50% of rent paid if you decide to buy later on.
Pianos under $6000
Professional Models are taller, from 121 cm and up. The most popular are the Yamaha pianos — with the U1 and U3 models the best known. We import these directly from Japan. We are careful to select only "A"-grade models which look like new inside and out. Even then, we spend many hours carefully regulating, lubricating action parts, voicing the hammers and tuning the instruments to A441 Hz. Prices start at around $ 7600, under half the new price.
