Purchasing Your Baby Grand Piano

Friday, November 30, 2012
Usually, when you are looking to purchase an instrument for your child, there is a purpose. One of the most common is a piano, and the price and type depend on what your specific needs are. It is a common belief that if a child is only a beginning player, a cheaper upright style is all you need, however, if you have a good teacher, he or she may suggest that you need to get the best one on the market so that your child will look forward to practicing his lessons. One of the best that you can buy for your child is a baby grand piano and there are several steps that you should follow to be sure to find the best one for your home and budget.
The first thing you should do when you are considering buying a baby grand piano is to visit a showroom so that you can familiarize yourselves with the different manufacturers and what makes each stand out. At this time, you should ask any questions that you may have and take notes from the dealer. You will also want to play each and listen to them so that you can hear the varying tones of each style. This instrument style will take up more space in your home, so make sure that you have pre-measured your space before you visit the showrooms.

Once you have decided on a couple of instrument options, take someone who is an experienced pianist back to the dealer with you so that you can get a professional opinion. Just remember that it is really your opinion that matters the most as well as what your pocketbook allows.
Finally, have your pianist friend check out several different pianos from each manufacturer because each one has a different quality and sound. Wen you are checking out the pianos, carefully inspect each one to make sure that the back is sturdy and can support the entire front of it. You also want to make sure that the soundboard translates the instrument's vibrations properly and that it is not cracked, because if it is cracked, it won't work properly. Other things that you should inspect are the plate, the treble and bass bridges, and the pedals. All these things need to be placed properly for the instrument to function as it should.
Once you have made sure that everything works and your professional pianist friend has checked your options for sound and quality, you can make your final decision, knowing that you have done careful research. Your child can have the baby grand piano that will create a lifetime of piano playing enjoyment.
