My wife and I are currently in the market for a small grand and after reading the forums, it seems like the Ritmuller line offers a lot of value. We used the dealer locator on the Pearl River/Ritmuller website but the dealer it listed (in Las Vegas) is no longer in business. Can someone help us find where we could view/play and possibly buy this piano?

We are in the Phoenix area.

Thanks!

2 choices:

Hollywood Piano in Pasadena - Glenn

Kassman Piano - Berkeley - Russell

I was in Hollywood Piano's Pasadena store a couple weeks ago and he had some very nice Ritmullers.

He also had a very very sweet Brodmann 162 just inside the door on the left. Very nice indeed.

Good shopping!

My favorite is R Kassman in Berkeley. I purchased long distance from him and could not be happier with the service I have received.

But before you drive over to the L.A. area if I were you I would go see Jason at AZ Piano in Phoenix and let him show you what he's got.

He handles Weber which are in about the same price range and you may find those to your liking.

Wow, thanks for all the help! We actually visited AZ Piano today and looked at a Young Chang PG-157 for a great price that we are considering.

Did you purchase sight unseen? I'm not flying six hours to try a piano.

I recommend Norbert at Heritage Pianos in Surrey, B.C. thumb

We're near the North Pole [as is commonly assumed..] which is a nice change from Phoenix weather!

Problem is we're almost completely sold out of ice cubes right now but can throw in a few free pianos instead!

Oh, no Rits please, we kinda like to keep those for ourselves...

I recently bought a Ritmuller grand from R.Kassman. I would recommend him highly if you are looking at Ritmullers, and do not have local dealer.

I played a PG-157 at AZ Piano a couple of months ago. Very nice instrument for the price !!

I did not buy sight unseen - I only had a 2.5 hour flight and was able to visit family while there. Now that I have met Russell and have been able to spend a little time with him, I would buy from him sight unseen after explaining what I was looking for. I trust that he would be totally honest with me and tell me if what he had to offer matched my needs/wants.

I am not sure what you would be looking for, but for me a plane trip ended up being neglible in the cost of my purchase. A six hour flight seems very little to me based on the amount of time/joy I receive from my piano.

No matter what you are looking for or where you might travel, a phone call discussing your wants and needs could eliminate unnecessary trips or determine if a trip is warranted.

Good luck,

Jonathan
