The first decision to make is on the size of the piano needed to for the available space in your home or any other location for housing the piano. Grand pianos are known to be large but also come in a wide range of sizes themselves. Depending on the space available, prospective buyers can buy the largest, smallest or anything in between for the best fit. In this regard, grand pianos in Melbourne differ in terms of length and number of keys, with the maximum being 88.
Once you have decided on the size of the required piano the next step is to decide on the best manufacturer or brand. Grand pianos are manufactured in different countries by different brands. This means that you will have to research on the best brand to purchase which has the desired quality for the intended use. Pianos made in some countries are considered to be of a higher quality and may, therefore, come at a premium.
Grand pianos are available as both new and used. This offers a variety in the available options and prices. It is however important to note that older pianos may go for a higher price as antiques compared to newer pianos. It is hard to tell apart new pianos from older, but well maintained pianos. Since grand pianos are made of high quality wood products, they can last for tens or even hundreds of years while maintaining the best functionality. The age of the piano also determines the acquired timbre. A new piano will need to be tuned up to four times in the first year while the older one will have already acquired its timbre.
With the intended use in mind, brand manufacturer, as well as size, you can appropriately set a budget. Since you have already decided on major aspects of the quality of the grand pianos to consider for purchase, it is now time to set a purchase budget. This budget is designed to keep you in an affordable range in these tough economic times.
