Now is the time to buy – especially if you want new!

 

If you’re interested in the benefits of a new, beautiful piano you should consider buying now as our Canadian currency has developed a losing trend over the past several months – and — most of our products are purchased through the US, even ones built in Asia. 

Why buy new?

The benefits of buying a new piano allow a beginning pianist to experience what TODAY’S piano industry standards demand – believe it or not, things have changed considerably in just the past 20 years — when we say change this has to do with; construction, leading to the 2 most important features of a piano; sound and touch.

Over the past couple decades our technology has greatly advanced which has allowed worldwide communication – particularly Europe Asia & America — to build to higher standards than ever before. The internet alone has enabled transparency leading to higher standards, and the extinction of truly poorly built instruments.

The piano is considered as a luxury, expensive family purchase that is generally used for decades. Therefore, an instrument built today that cannot deliver adequate performance, or that wont withstand certain climates will inevitably not sell.

For further education please contact us today – we’re delighted to help families select the right piano by providing a thorough education in the process.
