Orlando Piano Stores – Where To Buy Or Rent

If you’re in the market to buy a piano in Orlando it can be tough to know where to look. Please let this article serve as your guide to Orlando Piano Stores. I decided to write it after helping one of our students purchase their first instrument after moving up from starting lessons on a keyboard.
The format below is pretty simple, I called my friends at all our Orlando Piano stores and asked them the following 4 questions:

  1. What type of Piano’s do you sell (brand)
  2. Do they rent piano’s?
  3. What advice they would offer when it comes to buying a used piano?
  4. What’s most important for the 1st time piano buyer?

Orlando Piano Stores

Like finding the best Orlando piano teacher, buying a piano can be a challenging experience, but choosing a piano at a reputable piano store can make the process much easier. Here is a list of some great places to buy or rent a piano in Orlando and a short description of what they sell:

Dave let me know they don’t rent pianos, but do finance with 10% down. His advice to pre-owned piano buyers would be to be careful and buy from someone who is reputable. He says, “If you can afford to get a new one, invest in it”. Quality new pianos should last 60-70 years. For first time buyers you should get the best piano you can afford because it will last the rest of your life. You can reach Dave at (407) 339-3771 and learn more about their Steinway pianos at www.steinwayorlando.com.

Time to get a piano?

Curt at American Piano Wholesalers sells to dealers and the public. They are located at 2610 Taft Ave, Orlando, FL 32804. They sell new and pre-owned major brands as well as digital and player pianos. His advice for buying pre-owned is to research the brand and have a technician look at the piano before you buy it. He is just as for buying used as well as new. When buying used, you can expect to get most of your money back if and when you sell it. If you buy new, you may only be able to sell the piano back at a quarter of what you paid for it. If you buy used, buy something closer to new.

They get their used Yamaha and Kawai pianos imported directly from Japan. They offer rentals for as low as $60/month. His advice for buying pre-owned is that it is less expensive and comes with a warranty. He says if you buy pre-owned to also make sure the piano is factory refurbished, and the company is reputable. Sometimes it’s good to buy through a private owner. “If you have a lot of money, go with a good brand like Yamaha. You should also pay attention to the sound and the feel”.
