We’re asked a lot of different questions about pianos, piano repair, piano moving, and just about everything to do with our favourite instrument!
These are a few of the more common questions. If you have other questions, or would like any help or information regarding our pianos and piano services, call us or visit one of our stores in Sydney.
Choosing the right piano can be a personal and subjective decision, but there are a few key factors to consider that can help guide you towards the right instrument for your needs. These factors include your skill level and experience, the type of music you will be playing, your budget, and the available space in your home. Our team of knowledgeable professionals can help you assess these factors and guide you towards pianos that may be a good fit for you. We encourage you to visit our shop and try out different pianos to see which one feels and sounds best to you.
Ideally the best place for your piano would be in a central area against an interior wall, away from direct sunlight and extreme temperature changes. Maintain a stable humidity level and consider the room’s acoustics. Avoid high-traffic areas to minimise potential damage. Our team is available to assist and provide advice on the positioning of your piano. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have any doubts or questions!
We recommend having your piano tuned at least once a year to keep it sounding its best. However, the frequency of tuning may depend on factors such as how often the piano is played, changes in humidity and temperature, and the age and condition of the piano. If you notice that your piano is not sounding as good as it used to, it may be time for a tuning. Our team of professionals is experienced in piano tuning and can help you determine the optimal tuning schedule for your instrument.
Using regular removalists for moving your piano is not recommended. Pianos require specialised knowledge and expertise to handle properly, which general movers may lack. Pianos are delicate and sensitive instruments, and their transportation involves disassembly, packing, and specific techniques. Regular movers may not have the necessary experience or training, increasing the risk of damage. To ensure the safety of your piano, it is best to use professional piano movers which we can arrange for you.
While we do not offer piano restoration services, we would be happy to provide you with recommendations for reputable restoration companies in the area. These companies specialise in restoring vintage and modern pianos to their original condition and can help with anything from minor repairs to full-scale rebuilds. Please feel free to inquire with us, and we would be glad to provide you with our recommendations.
We offer long-term rentals of our used acoustic pianos, with a minimum rental period of 6 months. In addition, we also provide short-term rentals for special events such as weddings and business functions. Please note that we currently do not offer digital piano rentals. Our rental pianos are well-maintained and regularly serviced to ensure that they are in top condition for our customers. We also offer flexible rental terms and can provide delivery and pickup services for your convenience. Contact us to learn more about our piano rental options.
We understand that purchasing a piano can be a significant investment, which is why we offer short-term financing options for our customers. We provide interest-free financing on the original retail price of the piano, but unfortunately, this is not available on discounted pricing.
For new and used acoustic pianos, we require a 50% deposit upfront, with the remaining balance to be paid off in 3-6 equal monthly instalments.
For digital pianos, we also require a 50% deposit upfront, with the balance to be paid off in 3 equal monthly instalments.
Financing is not available for keyboards.
Please note that conditions apply for our financing options, and we encourage you to come speak with us in-store or give us a call to learn more about our financing terms.

Please contact us immediately if you encounter any issues with your purchase and we will work with you to find a suitable solution.
