Over the past 60 years, PianoPiano has represented 43 brands of pianos from over 14 countries. We’ve used that superior knowledge today to select the pianos we believe are of superior quality and value.
Here’s the story: Our General Manager has been going to Asia almost every year since 1965, visiting factories from Japan to China to Korea and beyond. Finally, we found a company that can make a pianos for us, exactly the way we want them – with the right materials, in the right cabinetry, with the right touch and tone, to our very tight requirements, all at the right price! Avery Bond is a great piano ideal for beginners, teachers and performers, that is also great to look at, that will fit almost any space, and all at a surprising low price.
Founded in Germany in the 1800s, the legendary Weber history has always been one of high quality tradition designed for serious classical music. The famous and exclusive Weber Scale Design has never been compromised as Weber moved its manufacturing facilities from Germany to the United States then to South Korea and now to one of the most modern piano factories in the world in China. Weber offers two series of models: the beloved standard Weber uprights and usual sized grands, and the superb Albert Weber Masterpiece uprights and grand pianos featuring Renner actions.
The largest piano company in the world, Yamaha was founded in Japan in the early 1900s. Featuring that big, bright tone that the world has come to love, our Yamaha pianos are purchased in Japan and lovingly restored by hand to make them even better than today’s new Yamaha pianos. We’ve been selling and renting Yamaha pianos for the past 40 years and have selected our (and the world’s!) favorite models just for you.
Founded by Yamaha in the 1930s, Young Chang emerged into its own worldwide popularity in the 1950s. The brand’s bright clear projection and light-easy action encourage young piano students as they learn and stage performers alike with durable construction and high tension scale. Chosen as the official piano of the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center, Young Chang is our favorite brand for a professional level piano that will grow with any student from a beginning player to a world class professional. Now imported by our friends in Anaheim, California, you can’t go wrong with a Young Chang piano.
Always known as a New York Piano, Hardman is now made in China and imported by our friends in Upstate New York. Today’s Hardmans are good quality, well priced, and absolutely musically pleasing to play for beginner students and advanced players alike. They hold up well, tune easily and are recommended regularly by some piano teachers for starting students because of their bright tone and easy (light) action.
Shigeru Kawai thought he knew a better way to build a piano, but his employer, the Yamaha Corporation, wouldn’t let him try. So, he went across the street and opened his own factory, starting one of the biggest rivalries in piano history. At PianoPiano, we feature one Kawai model which is the 43” Continental Console piano, a great option for those with a small space or who live in a walk up apartment.
