  • Key Points of Used Yamaha Piano-Ace Piano Shop in Singapore buy & sell used pianos-www.pianoshop.ol.sg
    say Dear Ummm not much really So did you call the manufacturer too Yes Agatha it s strange did you know that some of the earlier models might have a problem with square wheels PIANO EXPERTS Expect them to tell you what best suits their employment situation or any arrangement they may have with piano manufacturers dealers or others in the piano industry We don t buy and sell pianos and my opinion isn t based on fear of you purchasing an instrument we weren t paid to recommend Truth is that as a Piano Tuner most people I ever met or spoke with and who purchased used Japanese instruments are thoroughly happy They don t have any problems related to their piano having to contend with a climate being different to the one in which it was manufactured And in Alaska Angola or Atlantis or wherever you live it probably isn t much different You ll be warned that these used Japanese pianos are a bit sus suspect unless the serial numbers identify them as designed for local use Well Sorry my friend I find that all just a bit far fetched MOISTURE A little legacy from bygone days inside some older pianos one may find an old forgotten glass dish or empty soup bowl sitting on the base board Owners in areas of low humidity were once advised to keep it filled with water to prevent the piano from drying out What dried out of course was the water bowl In more humid zones a low wattage light bulb might be installed behind the bottom panel Left burning in the wetter months emitting gentle warmth it would help to dispel moisture Yep Worked fine I guess Right up until the bulb blew and a new one was needed Don t ever recall having spare 15 watt light globes at our house Do you Nowadays available as after market add ons are humidifier devices Sophisticated humidity control systems which may be fitted for such purposes Singapore reside in areas which feature tropical conditions on one hand and the rugged outback on the other Here dry sandy deserts can abut Rain forests and yet in general the pianos found in such locations simply go the distance most of them not being subjected to extremes in temperature or humidity anyway That s because most homes are equipped with heating and cooling systems designed to produce a comfortable environment for owners of quality pianos OK I will admit that as a Piano Tuner I will occasionally find some poor old relic with a moisture problem stiff keys notes that don t play as they should Not however a condition likely to be present in a modern piano unless it s been in Storage or left in someone s shed or a Cold Damp room for an extended period of time DRYING OUT But ask someone connected with Distribution or New pianos Sales well of course you ll be warned about Grey market

  • Where to buy a used piano-Ace Piano Shop in Singapore buy & sell used pianos-www.pianoshop.ol.sg
    you as a buyer a firm foundation to work with when planning your purchase and negotiating prices All of the prices in the guide are based upon the same margin ranges for each brand This ensures that there is no favoritism shown towards any particular model or brand and helps you get an idea of how the dealer is pricing their instrument relative to Industry Standard Piano Prices It is impossible to tell much about a piano simply by looking at it Neither can you tell unless you are an expert by sitting down and run fling through a few bars yourself or by listening to a salesman tinkle through a sonata or drum out some chords Most new pianos sound pretty good especially to untrained ears Not even the name may be a trustworthy indication of a piano s quality In the past 25 years many famous old piano companies have gone out of business Many of the names however have been bought by other firms Frequently the new makers have continued the tradition of craftsmanship and quality originally associated with the label Sometimes though the new owners place the name on a low cost piano of inferior make or on instruments made up especially to sell at sale prices The Who Where Why When and How are very important Singapore Piano Shop buy sell used YAMAHA KAWAI pianos There cannot be many products as ill suited to modern assembly line manufacturing techniques as the piano Each piece of spruce for the soundboard each batch of rock maple that becomes the pin block or wrest plank that holds the tuning pins in place each set of hammers all are marginally different from one another and the vagaries of each of a piano s 10 000 components have to be accommodated and allowed for by succession of watchful sensitive human beings PIANOS ARE NOT DUPLICATES Pianos are not duplicates they are not rubber stamped While it is possible to evaluate appearance tone and action by trial and observation other factors such as quality of workmanship price level and durability are not superior performance and workmanship in the store do not always produce the most rugged and durable construction The problem in the recent past in considering some pianos was that many of them came from the factory needing several hours of work by a skilled trained professional technician to bring the new piano to their full potential Not every dealer is or has been willing to spend the extra money it takes to give this preparation to new pianos The difference could and does lead to the selection of an inferior instrument over a potentially superior one because the better factory prepared instrument out performed the other in a store You are buying the time the dealer has put into preparing the piano for sale on the showroom floor costing anywhere from a few hundred to several thousand dollars depending on his location overhead and what he s had to

    technician will know for sure if it is a potential problem and to what degree and cost DO ANY of the NOTES WHEN PLAYED SOUND LIKE TWO NOTES AT ONCE This would indicate that the piano is severely out of tune and is going to require anywhere from 150 to 250 in tuning and pitch raises IS THE PIANO IN TUNE WHEN WAS IT LAST TUNED If the piano has been tuned and brought up to pitch recently and is already considerably out of tune it probably means that THE PINS ARE LOOSE AND IT WON T HOLD A TUNING minimum acceptable standard time is 6 months Also repairable but look at adding 200 and up for a pin treatment or more extensive repair to the cost CAUTION BUGS ON BOARD One infrequently addressed issue is that of the uninvited guests You may be bringing into your home with the purchase piano that is not certified clean rodent residue moth and roach casings pet hairs and spiders A prudent seller will look well to these things prior to selling but unless otherwise stated you should assume the piano in as is condition IF YOU DON T SMOKE WATCH OUT FOR THE PIANO FROM A SMOKER S HOME This can be dealt with but it is a long and tedious process whether you do it yourself or hire it done MYTH All pianos must be tuned after they are moved FACT If a piano has been kept tuned prior to moving it should not need tuning after moving if proper humidity has been maintained exceptions for concert performers Because moving is such a good reminder to have a piano tuned it has become a belief that it must be tuned at this time The difference to being in tune and recently tuned is an in tune piano means it can be played alone and sound quite pleasant but may not be up to pitch the standard A440 It also means that it is probably reasonably good at holding a tuning if it s been some time since its last tuning and it still sounds good A recently tuned piano should be up to the standard A440 and stay near there a minimun of 6 months IS THERE A BENCH This feature is not by any means a necessity but an added bonus as used benches start at 35 alone a matching bench being much more desirable and valuable ARE THERE DEEP INDENTATIONS IN THE HAMMERS A piano with deep grooves is still quite playable but the quality of sound is greatly improved with proper shaping Again this is something your technician can deal with with relative ease but it will be to a cost a minimum of 100 to have the hammers reshaped and follow up regulation performed If they ve been reshaped more than once it may mean a new set of hammers is in order which again means 400 or so more HOW IS THE FINISH Is the finish
