How To Purchase The Perfect Church Piano

How To Purchase The Perfect Church Piano

If you have any experience with purchasing a church piano, you know every piano is different. Defining your goals is important before you make your final decision. 

For example, the piano you place in a practice room wouldn’t have the same requirements as one you place on a stage. If you’ll be using it in a classroom of kids, it has different requirements than one you’ll be accompanying the choir. 

Your first step is to define your goals clearly. What do you need the piano for? 

  • Will it be kept in one place?
  • Will it be moved around?
  • Who will use it?
  • Who will listen to it?
  • Who will play it?

As you budget for replacing a current piano or adding a new one, don’t discount the value of used pianos. This isn’t about finding one off of Craigslist. Instead, it’s about working with a reputable dealer who can help you discover your needs. 

This is often why restored pianos can be a great purchase. Pianos of yesteryear were built to last. In many cases, the fact that they still are high-quality and in-demand today speaks volumes. And when they are fully restored to their best condition, their sound and tonal quality can often far exceed what you could purchase new for today. 

Which brings us to another question for you. Do you have a scratched, worn out piano in the basement you’ve been thinking about getting rid of? What if it could be brought back to life once again? 

Many of these older pianos are actually diamonds in the rough. Because you have experience with this piano, you know how well it’s been treated over the years. If it was a high-quality instrument in the first place, chances are through restoration, it can be brought back to great condition once again.
