Used Grand Piano Philippines

If you are looking for a grand piano, especially used, you will find many choices out there. Manila Pianos Inc. of Makati sells many used and reconditioned grand pianos as well as new ones. We can tell you from experience that it is hard to chose because of different conditions grand pianos are in.

Many people think that when a piano looks good, it is good. Nothing is further from the truth! A used grand piano can have 5000 parts that are in bad shape and you would never be able to tell if you were just looking a the piano, because these parts are inside.

Then there is the sound board, it can really be damaged without you even seeing it, it could flatten and therefore loses it’s tone. It’s like a speaker that has no cone.  A grand piano should have a soundboard that’s under pressure so it creates tone.

Therefore it is very important that, if you wish to purchase a grand piano privately, you have it inspected by a certified piano technician.

Our used grand piano selection is second to none, we are for sure the largest used grand piano store in the Philippines, maybe even in the world! A used grand piano should also have been maintained and… many people don’t do a good job of it.

Usually we find that the grand piano was tuned but not regulated or any kind of maintenance work done to it for decades! We get many used grand pianos where we need to spend some 20-40 hours getting the action back to good performance. So if you want to purchase a used grand piano, watch out for these 2 main shortcomings.
