PIANO BUYERS BEWARE | Know what your buying | Pianotech.com.au
The cost of the PIANO, PIANO MOVER, PIANO TUNER, adds up!
How stupid would you feel, when the piano tuner tells you that your piano is not tuneable and needs $1000's spent to make it tuneable and playable again.
The 2 problems are : Piano Buyers don’t know what they are buying...... and Piano Sellers don’t know what they are selling......
You need to be an informed consumer when buying any piano.
Do you know these terms:
Over strung Vs Straight Strung.
Over Damper Vs Under Damper
Full iron frame Vs 3/4 iron frame Vs Wood Frame
Open face pin block Vs Close faced pin block
Cracked Frame Vs Cracked Sound Board Vs Cracked Bridges
Loose Tuning Pins Vs Cracked Tuning Wrest Plank
I could keep going but I know your getting board now!
Don't get stuck with a piano that cant be serviced, so many pianos are like this on gumtree. Pianos that are only fit for landfill are being sold or given away and buyers are getting burnt by the associated costs of transport and piano tuners call out fees.

Here is some FREE PIANO BUYING TIPS:
If it sounds out of tune - Don’t Buy it! It may have loose tuning pins. You wouldn't buy a car blowing smoke... "Just needs a tune"... they say!
Photos of Pianos in front of windows, sliding doors, outside on the patio or in tin sheds - DON’T BOTHER - It will have problems due to extreme environmental conditions. A piano with a much shorter lifespan.
Restored 30 years ago! - Experience tells me that this could mean anything, they had the piano french polished and skipped on internal work to the action and tuning pins. It's like a shinny car with a blown engine!
ITS A BUYERS MARKET - the used piano market is dead, there are more old unwanted pianos verses piano players. You should have the upper hand in negotiations.
Found a piano you like - Contact Adrian at PianoTech.com.au and arrange a Piano Inspection. Discuss your needs and budget with Adrian and he will advise if the piano is serviceable and worth the price for the condition the piano is in.
