4 Unpractical & Common Mistakes When Buying A Grand Piano 


Buying a new piano can be daunting. Such an instrument can be a fine investment requiring commitment and entails responsibility, whether you’re buying a used or a new grand piano size. Whether you’re planning to buy one or your child aspires to learn the instrument, it’s vital to know practical ways to find the perfect instrument, especially for first-timers.

When buying such a costly instrument, one can make mistakes along the way. Without further ado, here are some of the most common errors buyers often make when buying a grand piano:

Does Not Know the True Cost Of Owning A Piano

Owning a piano is not for the faint of heart. Without any sugarcoat, owning a piano can be extremely expensive. You might want to reconsider your decision if you haven’t yet prepared your budget (and yourself) with all the post-purchase costs that entail. Moving, maintaining and repairing a piano can put your budget on an enormous setback if you don’t understand the true costs. It is not to discourage buyers from buying a new or even a used one, but the piano price in Singapore does not just end on a single purchase.

Not Yet Decided If They Are Committed and Willing To Learn

Many felt the temptation to buy instruments on impulse, just like buying new clothes when you have a budget with you. However, it is not the case when you want to purchase a piano. Learning a piano is a lifetime practice and commitment. Many people will answer ‘yes’ upon asking a simple question if they want to learn how to play. But most leave it there, and they make no decision if they desire to learn and play it.

Failing To Ask For Any Guidance

Buying a new instrument takes some time to decide, especially if you really want to pursue it. Even if you are reading a positive Steinway piano review online, it may not be enough as a basis for owning one, but only when buying one. As a buyer, you need to know if you have an idea of what you want for an instrument and how you can use it for long-term learning. Purchase is the initial start of a journey to learning the instrument itself. 

Spending Too Much or Too Little

You can buy a piano that goes way over your budget. You can also buy one that goes way too little than what you should really have. The issue here is sometimes we go for an ‘overkill’ excess or too much restrain. The context here is to discern where you will start your musical journey and what instrument can accompany you to go where you want without holding you back.
