Spinet pianos, like their cousins the upright pianos, have become increasingly popular as an inexpensive alternative to the exorbitant majesty of grand pianos. What they save in space they almost certainly do not sacrifice in sound quality, as clever construction creates nearly as much acoustical resonance as you might find in their sprawling horizontal counterparts. For families with budding musicians or longtime fans, spinet pianos simply make sense.

Of course getting your hands on a well-constructed piece takes more than just a good ear and decisive nature. Many such pianos are made with hardwoods that are less substantial than those found in lasting instruments, and the surest way to get ripped off before you even begin is to head into this negotiation without a keen understanding of piano construction. Many customers leave believing they have received an extraordinary bargain, only to return a year later with cracked casing or worse.

The Truth about Spinet Pianos

Thankfully there are some easy ways to separate the wheat from the chaff, and all you need to get the eye of authority on your side is a phone call. A number of piano services have cropped up just in the last year, and these collections of artisans, musicians and technicians bring dozens of years of experience among them to bear on your buying process. That means not only can you ensure you aren't being had, you can get the best price possible thanks to the clout of these well-known consortiums.

Do yourself a favor and do some homework about the best way to get help. Buying a piano can be an intense, involved and exhilarating endeavor, and the smartest way to protect yourself from inadequate information is to ask for help before you begin. Spinet pianos are investments that are meant to last generations, so do it right the first time and you will not be disappointed.
