The choice is yours! We have listed below just the main features that differ the purchasing of a new piano compared to a used piano.
The advantages of purchasing a new piano are:
– peace of mind with manufacturers warranty
– the action has no wear and so set-up and touch is at factory standard
The advantages of purchasing a used piano are:
– initial depreciation value is already lost, hence saving money
– often pianists prefer a slightly worn in piano and so a modern used piano is preferential
VERDICT : first decide your budget, then look at what new pianos are available in your budget – once you have found a new piano that fits your criteria look for a better model of a piano from the same manufacture, but in used condition. Often this method will allow you to save yourself a lot of money whilst buying a better piano!
