Let us broker your piano!
We do not deal with cheaply made, low quality, pianos. First we are hired to carefully inspect it to make sure that it is in good shape, or that any repairs or upgrades that it needs will have integrity. We will then do the work we feel is needed within reason. If we are going to sell a piano for you, plan on some work needed on it to be able to sell it.
Let us find you a piano!
In addition, if you give us the basic details as to what you want in a piano, as well as a reasonable price range that you are willing to afford, we can often find the right instrument for you, saving you the hassle of attempting to make a sound purchase in a field that you probably know little about. We have matched many people up with instruments this way.
Feel free to call or email us concerning any instrument you see here on our website, or to discuss your piano needs and "wants". Thank you for your interest.

The instrument pictured here is a beautiful Mason & Hamlin Model A Grand Piano Serial #31258 manufactured around 1923. Size is 5' 8". The piano received a major overhaul some years ago and is in excellent condition. At that time it had new hammers & shanks installed, a new pinblock, with repair and refinishing of the soundboard, new strings, new tuning pins and damper felts, and of course regulation of all components. Recently, we went over the entire piano, performing tuning and some minor reconditioning and voicing work and to verify the integrity of the entire instrument. The keys have their original ivory and ebony on them and they are in great shape.
As you can see, the brown mahogany finish is in excellent condition. Only a few minor dings and scratches exist here and there from usage. It really is gorgeous. Although not visible in this photo there is a complete humidity control system installed on the piano. This ensures much better tuning stability and longer life as a result.
The piano is owned by a local music instructor and has been used for teaching and music composition. It is readily available to be seen and played. The tone and touch is very much typical of what Mason & Hamlin became famous for: full, warm, and rich, yet plenty of power available when needed. This is a true musician's piano. You will not be disappointed. Call for an appointment to play it. Located in the Seacoast area. Price is $18,500.00

Pictured below is a Charles R. Walter grand piano, serial # 525912, manufactured in 1999. It is 6' 4" in length and sounds as big as a 7' piano. The case style is a gorgeous Traditional Mahogany. The Walter Piano Company is a family owned business noted for producing some of the finest hand-crafted instruments in the U.S. Each piano is signed (after rigorous inspection) by a member of the Walter family before being shipped out.
The two grand models (5' 9" & 6' 4") produced by the Walter Co. were designed by Delwin Fandrich, one of the most respected piano-design consultants in the country. Both models have high-quality features such as maple rims, Renner actions, Kluge keys, tapered solid spruce soundboard and German Abel hammers, features found only in hand made, high-end instruments. These pianos also have a unique "floating" soundboard that allows the bass to produce a much fuller and cleaner sound, as well as more powerful than other instruments of it's size. This piano is capable of the producing a huge Fortissimo as well as a subtle pianissimo and everything in between.
The unit under the keys is the control box for a PianoDisc player system installed on the piano. This was installed when new in 1999 and still works quite well (though it uses 3.5" floppy disks which some young people may not even have seen before). It can be upgraded to the latest and greatest system at additional cost.
As you can see it is also stunningly beautiful and includes an adjustable concert bench.

Please let us know about any work you want done by us on your family heirloom. We have been restoring fine grand and vertical pianos for 42 years to date. They are usually stunningly beautiful to look at, as well as gorgeous sounding when properly restored, at a fraction of the cost of a comparable new instrument. However, the emotional impact of a family-owned instrument essentially "brought back from the dead" is difficult to describe. We have experienced this many times. We have hundreds of satisfied customers!
