Piano purchase consultancy 

If you have an intention to buy a piano, you will definitely ask for opinions from people you know, look for information on the Internet or go to different shops. However, time never seems to be enough to understand thoroughly about the field. People then decide to buy a piano just like tossing a coin, with a hope of luck that they can choose a good one. Some are persuaded because of the tactful and ear-catching talks by the shop assistants. Others ask for opinions of piano teachers as they are claimed to have professional knowledge. In fact, piano teachers are those who are taught to play and to teach only. They are much different from us, the technicians who understand better referring to technical issues. They do not really know much about this as you think. You can read more about this here.

Being a professional technician, I am willing to help you be more confident with your purchasing decision. The knowledge I have gained does not only owe its origin to my personal experience, but also to the collected, extracted and translated professional materials that I have got. Nonetheless, it only works when you read it very carefully, again and again, step by step. Or else, it may even be counter-productive. You then will have a chance to buy good second-hand piano with a reasonable price, which is said to be better than buying a brand-new one, so please, just be patient.




1. Acoustic or Digital Piano:


Basically, there are two types of pianos on Vietnamese market: acoustic and digital piano. The former one is the real piano with sound and art values to contribute to the elegance and beauty of your home. The latter one does not have such values as acoustic pianos, but they are known for their mobility and usefulness. To understand more about this, please have a look here.

Now, if you have decided to go for digital piano, it is not necessary to continue reading. Just come to any piano store to choose any piece that suits your budget, make a bargain and then a purchase. You should go for the 88-note-keyboard (as there is a 76-note-one) with Grand Hammer System GHS which is created to get a sound quality as good as an acoustic one. Good bye and good luck with your purchase.


2. Brand-new or second-hand:


We only mention Upright Piano here even though there is another kind called Grand Piano, which is a big one with wings, used to perform. Have a look at these two kinds here, and make your own decision.

4. Budget balance:

Depending on how much you want to spend on the piano, you can choose the most suitable one by looking at the pricelist here.


You should find a store with these criteria:

1. Being a direct importer or selling pianos with importing certificates. Ask the shop assistant to show you importing documents such as Custom Paper or C/O and then you will know whether they are a direct one or not. By doing this, you will be able to avoid origin-unidentified pianos in the market.

2. Being supplied with authorized equipment and piano components. Ask the shop assistant to show you some components such as hammer, keyboard, etc. The authorized ones will be sealed in box, with barcode and brand information on the box. The store with authorized components is technically proficient enough to provide standard products and warranty later.

3. Having professionally trained piano tuners and warranty details. This is very important thing to bear in mind.Bạn nên tìm các cửa hàng có đủ những điều kiện sau:
