THINKING OF A SECONDHAND PIANO?
Logans Pianos is Sydney's leading Authorised Yamaha Piano Dealer. If you are thinking of buying a second hand piano, you may be surprised to find out how affordable a new Yamaha piano is. Many people purchase a used piano for the same price as Logans can set up and deliver a new Yamaha Piano. Don't waste your hard earned money. Don't be mislead. Deal only with an Authorised Yamaha Piano Dealer.
A quote from the NSW Piano Technicians Guild regarding Grey Market Pianos;
"Definition: Second hand piano being imported from Japan. Mostly Yamaha and Kawai, grands and uprights. The quality is extremely varied (despite the A+ rating given to many of them), some of them are quite high quality, but these seem to drown in a sea of ordinary and downright rubbishy instruments."
The Logans Difference
All pianos for sale at our Burwood music shop are completely regulated and tuned several times before delivery. You will also receive a free stool, warranty, free tuning after delivery and we can arrange continued maintenance afterwards. The knowledge and experience gained over the past ninety years, when applied to a new piano through regulation and tuning, ensures a Logans Piano will deliver the best possible performance and the greatest enjoyment for many decades to come.
We have found that 70% of our business comes through satisfied clients who advise family, friends and students to buy pianos from us. These recommendations mostly depend on the good performance of our pianos long after they have been delivered. We therefore CHOOSE and PREPARE our pianos VERY carefully.
Why a New Piano Needs Regulation
All new pianos, before leaving their factory, are tuned and regulated. Piano components, including wood, felt and doeskin have a tendency to "bed down" and change in thickness for some time, thus altering the regulation and performance of the piano. All manufacturers insist that their new pianos should be regulated again before being sold.
As production schedules in factories only allow for a certain amount of time to be spent on each piano, much of the finishing work is left to whoever sells the piano. This work is vital to the lasting qualities of any piano, can save large future repair bills, and brings out the full performance potential inherent in its design. A large percentage of pianos sold receive no more than tuning at this most important stage in their lives, often being uncrated and delivered direct from the warehouse.
In 1992, members of the Piano Tuners Guild of NSW assessed the cost of a pre-delivery service for a new upright piano at about $550 to $600. Although this costs much more today, Logans fully regulate and prepare all pianos for sale at no extra cost to you.
