I'd like to know the list price and what would be considered a "good" price for a Hailun 151. There are no local dealers and every one that I've asked online says they can't tell me any prices unless I come in. I'd just like to know if it's even in my budget.

See what Larry Fine says in his book; I don't have his current supplement. He also speaks of about what kind of "discount" to expect. As you may have guessed, prices for pianos are not absolute or clear.

What I do have is a website:


which shows list prices of Hailun pianos and then tells the reader that they are not list prices. I have heard of "discounts" from these list prices of more than 25%, perhaps even 30-35%. This should be enough to give you an idea of whether you would consider a visit to the deal worthwhile. But prices vary by geography, state of the economy, the degree to which dealers will prep the piano, dealer overhead, and probably many other factors. What one person paid a month ago will not necessarily be an indicator of what you could expect to pay now in a different location at a dealer with a different cost structure and support plan.

Price is important, but the appeal of the piano is even more important. You also want to be sure that you deal with someone who will provide the support that you need and want (a combination of the dealer and your regular tuner/technician). This total cost of ownership (purchase + tuner/tech) is what you will want to consider as the "price" of your piano.

The latest edition of the Larry Fine Supplement indicates $9,900 for a 151 in ebony finish. Since I have no idea of where you are located, I can only provide information in USD.

That is the "basic" price and then you start your negotiations. It is probably a very good time to do some serious bargaining.

If it is possible to consider, you might also play a 178. There is a world of difference in the tonal structure of the larger instrument. The Supplement indicates the basic price to be $13,390.

Hop has given some very good advice. There are many things to consider when deciding on the "best" price for a piano. But these will give you the starting point.
