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.

Kayserburg Piano – Pearl River’s new Flagship

Carte blanche literally translated means “blank card”, a canvas ready for creation. But it also denotes “blank cheque”, signed with no numerical value yet filled in. Such was the case for famed piano engineer Stephan Mohler and designer Lothar Thomma when asked by Pearl River to build a line of pianos with no holds barred. They were given creative and financial freedom to produce pianos similar to their heritage in Europe – having worked for ...

Who Is Grotrian?

The World Fair became The World Exposition which became Expo as we know it. I stumbled upon a book about the musical instruments from the world fair in the late 1800’s. It was said of Grotrian “There is no effort to produce them in great numbers, but rather to create in every one, as it passes through the factory, an instrument fit for the inspiration of great artists who have long accorded to its makers ...

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.

Steinway grand piano

The Sale of Steinway

From its inception in 1853, Henry Steinway had 2 goals – make pianos that produce beautiful music and build a successful company. The former is done through innovation and craftsmanship.
