I know this is a stupid question but I would appreciate any advice: I want to buy an upright piano and I have a very limited budget. Obviously I can’t afford to be picky, but I would like something that I can use for a while. I have seen plenty auctions on ebay of upright pianos going under 50 pounds. Is there anything that I can check or ask about the piano before I buy it so that I avoid a total disaster?
Besides if the frame is metal, if the keys are in working order and if the pins seem to be stuck, can I ask anything else? Can you give me any other advice?
