Some pianists decide to own an old piano
, especially if they are still starting out. If you do not have the budget of a brand new keyboard, consider the following benefits that you can get in buying a secondhand piano.
1. The sound quality of the aged piano is enhanced
Unlike poorly made brand new pianos nowadays, you can rest assured that the sound quality of a used piano is fantastic. Especially if the previous owner had been regularly tuning the keyboard, it could turn out into a piano that sounds impressive compared to mass-made consoles you see in the market today.2. Secondhand pianos are great deals
Most of the time, private sellers sell their keyboard because they have to move and it'll be a hassle to bring it with them. Hence, they are always in a rush of selling their piano. That means you can negotiate with them and own a well-conditioned piano in a lower price. However, if the cost is suspiciously low, make sure that you double check the keyboard before you hand them the payment.3. Alluring history
Some professional pianists use their grandmother's heirloom piano because of its history. You will get the same feeling once you buy an old piano from someone who descended in a musical family. The previous owner may have the piano for a decade and must've made a lot of memories and mysterious history that you can keep once you bought the piano from them.
