To be fair, the choice is yours. And, you never know – you may purchase something you were not expecting to find. We have an extensive range of brand-new and second-hand pianos, and you can try them out when you come to our showroom.

Ultimately, your decision will reflect your needs and budget. Often, used pianos are more affordable than new instruments, so investing in a pre-loved piano is an ideal entry-level way to get started in the world of music.

Equally, they’re a greener choice. Plus, a used piano may have an interesting story or two to tell…

Likewise, be aware that we also sell reconditioned pianos, and that should they be from a high-end manufacturer, they could be more expensive than a new one.

Yes, you can.

Well, in FAQs page about pianos list, this is an important question.

Apologies, though – we can’t answer that question directly or explicitly. From an upright to a Grand or Baby Grand, there’s no standard size of piano. Plus, their dimensions vary enormously. So, do measure your intended space if possible. If necessary, we can visit your property to ensure a perfect fit.
