Piano Buying Guide

Purchasing a piano can be a daunting task, but with the right information, you can make an informed decision. Here are some factors to consider when buying a piano:

  1. Type of Piano: There are two main types of pianos: acoustic and digital. Acoustic pianos produce sound through hammers striking strings, while digital pianos use electronic sound samples. Acoustic pianos are generally more expensive and require more maintenance, but they offer a more authentic playing experience. Digital pianos are more affordable and easier to maintain, but they may not provide the same level of sound quality as acoustic pianos.
  2. Size: Pianos come in various sizes, from small uprights to grand pianos. The size of the piano will depend on the space available in your home and your budget. Grand pianos are the largest and most expensive, while upright pianos are more compact and affordable.
  3. Budget: Pianos can be expensive, so it is important to set a budget before making a purchase. We offer several financing options, just ask our sales team! 
  4. Maintenance: Pianos require regular maintenance to keep them in good condition. Acoustic pianos need to be tuned at least once a year, while digital pianos do not require tuning. It is also important to keep the piano clean and free of dust and debris.
  5. Accessories: When purchasing a piano, you may also want to consider purchasing accessories such as a bench, headphones, or a metronome. These accessories can enhance your playing experience and make practicing more enjoyable.
