How to successfully choose a good Piano
It is easy to find 100 different viewpoints from 100 sources about how to find a good piano. However, our experience over a lifetime of playing, performing, and servicing pianos has taught us the basic formula for success.
Step 1: Parts
Find a piano that is made from quality parts and materials and you can’t go wrong in having a good instrument. A solid-spruce soundboard is the most widely accepted by manufacturers and technicians for producing long term sound quality. Many will try to sell you on a laminated spruce, but with a few exceptions, it won’t sound as good over time compared to solid-spruce.
Step 2: Touch
We recommend that you play each piano and know that you enjoy the touch and the way it feels. Each of us has a different opinion, and thankfully this element is adjustable to your taste by a certify technician.
Step 3: Felt
It’s good to check the brand, size, and composition of the felt on the hammers and dampers. Royal George felt is one of the most commonly accepted, and you can usually find it stamped on the side of the first or the last hammer.
Step 4: Price & Deal
We find that the customer who is price oriented vs. quality, affordability, reputation of dealer, manufacturer, and warranty usually results in being much less happy with their purchase over time.
Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:
Garry is extremely knowledgeable and knows his stuff. We just bought a gorgeous Baldwin piano from him and he was awesome to work with. So friendly and personable and I never felt pressured to buy anything. We had a great experience working with him!
Garry and Jackie are clearly both professionals who truly love what they do and passionate about sharing their talents with others. Very talented and entertaining. My family and I love visiting the store.
Garry is very kind and knowledgeable and is very fun to talk to. We are very impressed with his own arrangement of songs. We really enjoy visiting Gentry Music and Arts and watching Garry’s performance. Five stars!
