ON LINE PIANO APPRAISAL

Piano appraisal service

I’ve been helping people get the best piano at best possible price since 40 years.

It is important to hire the service of a professional to evaluate the piano you plan buying.

I will help you make an informed choice and avoid losing large amount of money.

Whether it be for a new or used piano, I am available to evaluate “on site” the piano you have an interest on for less than the price of a regular tuning ($120), or for an online piano appraisal at only $67 (see comments bellow)

Instructions for piano dismantle

PS if it’s an uprignt piano, open the top lid and the front panel to take photos near hammers, mechanic and the strings. Under the keyboard, please take off the lower pannel. It is held in place with only one spring. Take pictures of the strings, bridges and the soundboard. Just examine the inside of your piano and you will soon discover how to dismantle it. You wont need any tools.

Here is a (French) video from my PIANO TUNING TUTORIAL with which I teach piano tuning. You will have more instructions than necessary to take your photos but you will understand how the piano is built.

Don’t forget to remove the lower panel under the keyboard and take photos:

PS note that this visual assessment from photos does not replace an “on site” assessment, that is to say in real ($ 120) Therefore, it is not accompanied by any guarantee apart from my willingness to help you.
