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.

Piano Touch with David Stanwood

I was speaking with someone recently about this blog post on touch, describing it as "an interview with a piano mathematician". "There are piano mathematicians?" was the reply. If people only knew how many calculations go into the engineering of a single instrument, they would be astounded. Today we have the privilege of speaking with David Stanwood, a piano technician who also happens to be a published author specializing in piano touch metrology. (Metrology being ...

Visiting Pearl River Factory

On this latest trip to China, I managed to catch a glimpse into the transformation of Pearl River Piano. Already the largest piano company in the world manufacturing more than 130,000 pianos annually, Pearl River Piano has its sights set on even greater advancement. One hundred thirty thousand pianos annually equates into about 400 pianos being manufactured per day. Imagine though what it must be like to produce 400 pianos daily. With roughly 225 tuning ...

Bell Tower in Czech Republic

Visiting Petrof Piano

I walk up the stairs of the bell tower in the town of Hradec Králové (“City of the Queen”). The stone steps are worn because many have visited this monument built nearly 450 years ago.
