Jump to new posts Second opinion when buying used from a store by Arghhh @ 08/18/16 08:53 PM

Is it acceptable to bring in an independent tech to look over a used piano in a store? The techs that the stores use are obviously not the most unbiased, especially if the tech is also the owner. I feel kind of awkward doing this, and I'd assume som

I'm not very knowledgeable on either instrument but I do know that used electronics can be a real crap shoot. You do not know how hard it was used or if anything "unfortunate" has happened to it. Unless you can check on it's condition per

I pay monthly with a check, but would be happy to pay for a longer interval at a time. $480/per month looks like a lot, and to my mind it IS a lot. What kind of students do you see for 90 minutes 2x/week?

If you have a 36-week piano year (roughly corresponding to the school calendar), you can divide it into four 9-week terms and have them pay for all the lessons in each term in advance of the first lesson of that term, __by check__. Having them pay by

Yes they are still being made in Germany, our music school just bought one 5 months or so ago. They actually have both a Fazioli 270 and Steinway C. I know this does not show the actual sound difference, but I have two videos of the same piece played

Piano wire stretches when it's new, and most pianos don't have nearly enough tunings before they are delivered to the customer. If the piano was delivered to you flat, and the technician has been raising the pitch each tuning, tunings might not be a
