SEARCH NEW PIANOS BY PRICE (MSRP)

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.

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.
