I'm looking for a better piano for my kids who have been playing an old beater for the past 5 years. My budget is 3-5k - I want good sound, value and an instrument that I can pass on.
Given my budget and the piano's we've played in stores, I'm thinking a slightly used Yamaha or Kawai upright are good options.
I recently found a Kawai NS 20A (1997) for sale by a private party in the SF Bay Area. They are asking $4200. Does anyone have any input on this instrument at this price? Any other advice is greatly appreciated. My kids are musical but I am not!
Thanks

The NS-20A is a fine piano.It was Kawai's 49"artist uprt. in that era before changing over to the K series (K50) When it was discontinued it retailed for $7290. Most dealers sold it for 5Kish so....$4200 is on the high side from a private party, You don't have to be musical to get a better value. 3-3.5K is closer to reality.
Anymore$,buy a new one for a few dollars more. \:\)
