Piano Appraisals & Estimates

Recently a woman called to ask me to meet her at an estate sale. She had seen a piano there and wanted my opinion of it. This was a smart woman. The piano that was for sale was a Sohmer grand piano built in 1913 and, at $500, it looked like a good deal. Nothing had ever been replaced on this piano. It was a re-builder’s dream because it hadn’t been messed with or damaged by decades of poor or inadequate service.

While the piano had the potential to be a lovely instrument, the woman decided not to buy it. The price tag was just the beginning. It needed many thousands of dollars of work. She already had a serviceable piano and wasn’t in a position to spend that kind of money.

I tell this story to illustrate the point that having a piano appraised is always worth the effort and minimal expense. Having a qualified expert evaluate all aspects of a piano gives you the information you need to make an informed decision.
