Choose a restored piano
On occasion, I bring in a candidate for restoration. I keep the inventory pretty small, only with pianos which have stood the test of time and are capable of being sturdy, beautiful, fully restored instruments.
Price for a fully restored piano is comparable to the price of some new pianos. I have yet to hear a new piano which adequately replicates the quality of sound intrinsic to so many pianos of this era.
