The decision of which piano to buy for you can be difficult. But buying a piano as a gift for a loved one or friend can be even mores daunting. This is especially true if the recipient is an advanced player who might have very specific preferences in an instrument. Here at Northwest Pianos we are very sensitive to these issues and have strategies to help our customers navigate them.
When you visit us just let us know if you are buying for someone else. We have a list of questions that will help us to recommend a piano that you can be confident your recipient will love. We can also help with arranging delivery if you want the piano to be a surprise. We can even arrange for the piano to arrive with a big red bow on it.
Many people these days seem to be interested in the industries heavily promoted “hybrid pianos" as an alternative to acoustic models.
Most of the instruments sold as hybrids are actually digital pianos with regular piano actions to get a closer to acoustic feel. The digital manufacturers have been improving the actions since day one to try to come as close to an acoustic experience while playing as possible, and this is the ultimate outcome.
