I also believe that you have to get to know and trust the person that you are buying from..... what actual experince and knowledge does he have ? How did he gain that knowledge ? From whom was this knowledge gained ?......that's the difficult part.
Nowadays, you have ' salesmen ' who try to sell pianos on price alone (just like buying a car). They have ' little - to - no knowledge ' and will and are going to tell you just anything to get your money. What does it matter ' what price ' when you are going to have this instrument for the rest of your life ! The ' salesman ' will alway try to muddy the waters and ensure that you go along with his reccomendation. But how can he make such ' bold ' statement ? "Go for this or that !" The tuner/ technician will listen to the player and suggest that you try this or that because of the touch or tone...not the 'bottom line '. The tuner has the knowledge and experince working with pianos to direct you to the correct instrument !
Good luck.. in what we call...... ' the piano trade '

Kemble 132 not in the same league as Yamaha SU7 or price range SU7 made using the same materials as Yamaha concert grand,have played them and are good instruments but did find the top treble disappointing.Grotrian College model in price bracket and should be able to pick up a decent used Steinway K around the 13k mark.hammer man wrote:I agree with Sussex, Kemble first, Yamaha second!
Very much agree with above comments,but would go for say a 20 to 30 year old Bosie oppose to new one.joseph wrote:If money wasn't a problem, and I had to make the choice between an SU7 and a Kemble, I'd personally go for the SU7. If money was no object and I had to buy any upright of my own choosing, I'd pick a Steinway K or perhaps a Bosendorfer 130.
