The Steinway Pianos for sale that undergo piano restoration by The Piano Store are carefully selected based on their superior tonal
qualities, action, wood, and soundboard condition .They are primarily procured from California homes and estates. West coast weather and atmosphere is kindest to pianos over time and only superior candidates are chosen and then evaluated for sound superiority and case and action condition prior to starting any major restoration. Higher level piano restoration may include stringing an original condition piano to evaluate projection and quality of sound prior to any major work commencing on a particular piano.
The Piano Store owns our pianos, and we have a physical business location. In recent years, virtual piano brokers have set up “shop” on the internet , simply brokering home seller pianos, whereby they take pictures of house pianos and "photo shop" them to conceal the real condition of the pianos. Many of these pianos have poor service records, and also have less than truthful condition disclosure .These brokers then market them on the net, for far more money than these pianos are worth to unsuspecting buyers. What seems to be a bargain, is generally a costly financial and emotional landmine. Most of the pianos on these sites that state they have been restored…are in fact sadly needing complete restoration.

The value of The Piano Store rebuilt Steinway is much higher than a new one immediately. A new high ticket Steinway will depreciate dramatically during its first few years of ownership while our pianos have already factored in substantial immediate savings and value into our sale prices. The big advantage is you are buying an investment quality Steinway piano from us which will have fantastic sound, action, and look. You will also get far more value than any new imported Far East mass market, machine built piano. Granted, late model Steinway pianos are generally featured in live performances ...but many famous concert performers prefer a restored Classic or Vintage Steinway as their home piano.
