Looking For a Piano to Buy
A quality new piano will be almost as good and just as up to date in 10 years time as it is today, based on normal one hour's use per day. After 20 years
it will need light adjustment by a qualified tuner. In 40 years it will probably need reconditioning. During all this time it is highly unlikely to go wrong at
all. Older pianos sometimes carried lifetime guarantees. Therefore the number of used pianos for sale far outweighs the number of quality new pianos.
How to choose a good piano
Only a small percentage of new Pianos for sale today are well made, especially when looking at the cheaper ranges. Many uprights from the Far East which
sell for under £1800 are in our opinion of poor quality, having uneven tone, action & tuning problems after a few years. We recommend finding a good
second hand one or buying a top reconditioned one from the 1920s or 30s. A good restored piano from the early 1900s is likely to be much better than
a cheaper new one. Also modern pianos for sale dating from about 1960 to 1980 are generally better quality than equivalent new ones made today.
A Piano's Touch & Tone
Touch is to some extent a matter of personal preference, but Pianos with too heavy a touch can be difficult to play expressively. On the
other hand, pianos with too light a touch aren't very good for serious beginners as they will not develop sufficient finger strength. New
pianos tend to be on the heavy side with a brighter tone, while Traditional pianos generally have a lighter touch and more mellow tone.
Upright & Grand Prices
You can Buy a good restored used upright traditional or modern from around £1300.00, an equivalent New Piano will cost £3000.00+.
