Buying A Piano On A Budget
Updated: Feb 28
Many factors go into determining which piano is the best purchase, including cost. Knowing how to budget for a piano is a helpful place to start. Buying a piano is an investment for anyone. We all want to get the most for our money when investing in a piano. One of the best ways to make sure you get the best piano for your budget is by considering what your needs are. If you're a first time piano buyer, your needs may be considerably different than a seasoned player . You may be buying a first piano for a student or you may be an adult trying something new. For some the goal is to make that experience available without feeling like too much is financially at risk if they don't continue to play. For others learning piano is a lifetime dream and their first piano is going to be their last piano and they want all the bells and whistles. Those are different goals from the same starting point. Determining your budget range and letting us know where you're comfortable can be a helpful step in the piano buying process. At any level, we have options for you.
If you want a quality and don't mind something that's lightly used, we often have a great selection of pre-owned pianos. We only buy about 1% of the pre-owned pianos we see, which we thoroughly inspect to make sure they're up to our standards. We never buy "grey market" pianos.
Upright pianos are space saving when compared to grand pianos, and are more affordable while still giving you a true acoustic piano experience.
Digital pianos are a great way to enjoy playing piano without taking up as much space or having to worry about things like temperature and humidity control. They also afford the ability to control volume or can even be used with headphones. Digital pianos also often have more instrument sounds and features to offer beyond the sound of the piano.
