SEARCH NEW PIANOS BY PRICE (MSRP)

The Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) are prices established by each company, presented in $USD. The MSRP is the “List Price” of a piano. This is not the sale price of the piano but rather, the highest price the piano will be listed at. Often, stores may discount pianos heavily and so it is a good idea to shop locally to find what price a piano may be purchased for. By clicking on any of the price points below, you’ll be able to see all of the piano models available in that particular price range.

There’s a church in Dresden called Frauenkirche (translated “Church of our Lady”) which was bombed on February 15th, 1945 during WWII.

Mapes Piano String Company – How Piano Strings are Made

Stephen Mapes established the Mapes Piano String Company in 1912 and shortly thereafter in 1918 it was purchased by John Adam Schaff.

Hailun Piano Innovation

Earlier this year at NAMM I interacted with Mr. Hailun Chen – truly a privilege and honour to connect with such a humble visionary who has influenced and supplied more piano parts than we’re probably aware of.
