How to Buy a Piano: Part Three

Monday, October 8, 2018 | 10:19 pm

Buying a quality piano is a major purchase requiring some specialized knowledge. A competent buyer must know the landscape of piano-making in today’s world, what to look out for when it comes to finding top quality, and how to shop for a piano whether you are buying your first or tenth. Part three of this series details how exactly to go about buying a piano.

Whether it’s your first or fifteenth piano, you’re unlikely to know everything about the grand instrument. The online world has made it easier to source information. However, the internet is also full of unhelpful stuff.

Hollywood Piano believes there are three main resources that any piano buyer should look into. First up is The Blue Book of Pianos. Available online, it details information about both new and used pianos.

The Piano Book (also known as PianoBuyer.com) is the industry’s bible. Going into great detail about how each piano is made, it also gives tips for how to research and buy the best piano that suits you. It also gives each piano a rating.

Lastly, there’s Piano World. This website features a series of forums where you’ll find answers to all the questions you’ll ever have about pianos. And if you can’t find an answer, simply post a question and wait for the floods of replies to come in.

According to Hollywood Piano, the best way to kickstart the buying process is to figure out the type of piano you want (vertical, grand, etc.) and your budget. Use the above resources to help and ask for opinions from other piano lovers.

Once you think you’ve found the perfect model, head to Hollywood Piano for even more advice and to see your new baby in the flesh. Research may be time-consuming but it’s the only way to ensure you don’t end up with a dud.

Hollywood Piano is located at 323 South Front Street, in Burbank. For more information, call (818) 954-8500 or visit http://www.hollywoodpiano.com.
