If that is truly the case with your local dealers, then they can't be very motivated with regards to selling their pianos. The same applies for most acoustic instruments, a violinist wouldn't go and spend thousands on an instrument they have never heard or played because each is so individual, just like the player.
Currently play on Casio CDP100
Plan on trying to finance a Grand Piano by the end of 2013 *Donations kindly accepted, apply within*
