Secondhand Pianos

We are now at 57, Wakefield Street, Onekawa, Napier, (just 50 metres from the junction with Austin Street).

I'm a piano tuner/technician and need to be out tuning and servicing customers' pianos in their own homes, therefore we can't be open all the usual retail hours.

We are usually open on Thursdays from 10-45 until 4-30 and on MOST Saturday mornings from 9-30 until 12-00. Otherwise we can be open by appointment (Sundays and evenings included).

You can ring anytime on 06 8445 312 to make an appointment to view pianos. Thank you.

I supplied to a family about 5 years ago and as the children are progressing well they have just upgraded to a new piano. It is in good sound condition and plays well. It has a pleasing bright tone.

This good quality Czechoslovakian piano is in excellent playing condition.I estimate that it was built in the 1970s. It has a warm European tone and an even, responsive touch. This instrument would satisfy most advanced students or pianists. Unfortunately the polished finish is badly faded. Were it not faded, it would have been priced at $3,000.

Bernard Steiner

A reasonably modern South African instrument in a stylish reproduction cabinet. I estimate is that it was built in the 1970s or 80s. It is in sound mechanical condition and plays well. The construction would suggest that this should be a really good toned piano but in reality it is disappointing. It is, however, a perfectly adequate piano for a beginner or intermediate level student.The cabinet has suffered minor damage but nevertheless the matt finish appearance is respectable. A matching single stool is included. I expected this to be a $3,000 piano but it doesn't come up to that expectation, hence the more modest price.
