Frequently Asked Questions

Although many sellers choose to operate on a consignment basis with their pianos, we are sometimes able to purchase pianos outright from sellers. Pianos are assessed for potential purchase on a case-by-case basis; if you'd like to know if we'd be able to purchase your piano, please feel free to call or email us.

Yes, in fact most sellers choose to use our services to sell their pianos on consignment.

Sadly, no. Many pianos presented to us have met or exceeded their intended lifespan and do not retain much value in the open market.

Some common examples include:
  • Pianos produced by makers who are no longer in business
  • Traditional (roll-style) player pianos
  • Small upright pianos (spinet or console pianos 43'' tall or smaller)
  • Very small baby grand pianos (5' in length or shorter) which are 30 years old or greater
  • Digital pianos or keyboards 10 years old or greater or without an 88-note fully weighted keyboard

Most pianos falling into this category have a market value between $0 and $1000. Unfortunately we are unable to provide more specific valuations for pianos in this category.

This is not our specialty. The value estimates that we can provide you assume that the piano will be listed for sale in the current market, and may not be suitable for purposes of insurance or tax deduction.
