Upgrading Your Piano

It’s easy to become attached to your old piano. Many musicians have a soft spot for the first piano they ever played and tend to hang on to it for years. While the nostalgia-value of an old instrument is nice, you may wish to upgrade your piano if you’ve outgrown it.

When is the Right Time to Upgrade?

Saying goodbye to your beloved piano can be heartbreaking, but it’s important to upgrade when the time is right. But how do you know when it’s time to move on?

If you’re experiencing frequent issues with your piano, you might be better off with a brand new instrument. There’s no point sinking thousands of dollars into piano repair when you’re just going to experience the same problems again and again.

If you’ve managed to improve your playing ability on a second-hand piano, it could be time for an instrument that better matches your skill level. You’ll be amazed by how beautiful your pieces sound on a brand new piano! 

Benefits of Upgrading Your Piano

If you’re an experienced piano player, you’ll know how different the same piece sounds when played on different pianos. If you’ve been playing an older instrument for years, you’ll be amazed how much better you sound on a new piano.

A new piano can even help you improve your skills. With balanced keys and a clearer sound, you’ll be able to master more complex pieces.

And remember you don’t have to get rid of your old piano completely! Why not pass it on to a friend or family member?

Dont Forget to Set a Budget

If you’re in the market for a new piano, it’s important to decide how much you’re willing to spend. Digital pianos, upright pianos and grand pianos all have different price points, so setting a budget can help narrow down your choices.

Many people view a piano as an investment in lifelong learning and joy, so don’t be afraid to splash out on your dream instrument. However, there are a great range of pianos available for those with smaller budgets.

What to Look for in a New Piano

Now that you’ve decided to upgrade your piano, it’s time for the fun part: choosing a new instrument. It’s important to select a piano that suits your lifestyle.

Are you looking for a low-maintenance piano? A digital piano never needs to be tuned, and there are a range of lightweight models available if you’re often moving around. If you’re after a more conventional piano experience, you could invest in a magnificent grand piano. For a great balance of tradition and convenience, upright pianos are the perfect size for any home.
