Buying a Used Piano

Our selection of pre-owned Grand and vertical pianos is carefully selected for quality of touch, tone, and aesthetics. Each instrument is subjected to a 60 point comprehensive check for a cabinet, action regulation, and tonal voicing. Only after this rigorous program does a chosen piano receive certification to be placed in the showroom for customer selection. Each piano is delivered with a bench, full warranty, an in-home tuning, and a full 10-year trade up which allows you to upgrade your piano and receive 100% of the purchase price in trade.

Selecting A Used Steinway

Once you’ve dedided on what type of piano you’re looking for, and are considering a restored or pre-owned Steinway, we strongly recommend that you get written confirmation that every part in the piano is a genuine Steinway part.

Many of our pre-owned pianos for sale are almost new or have been completely restored. Some have recently graced the stages of the world’s most prestigious music festivals. Yet, each is offered to you at substantial savings compared to a new instrument. Our wide selection of used pianos puts owning the piano of your dreams surprisingly within reach.

One of the most important keys to purchasing a used Steinway is to know that parts that have been replaced have been replaced with the same parts that the manufacturer uses. Many piano re-builders use inferior, non-Steinway parts, which can seriously compromise the instrument’s performance and investment value. In response to this, we only use 100% genuine Steinway parts.

With so many different piano manufacturers, models, sizes, and prices, purchasing a used piano can be a very difficult and confusing journey, even more so when looking for a quality used grand piano. As one of the oldest piano manufacturers, Steinway has learned a great deal about building the world’s finest pianos and a great deal about what every potential piano buyer should know.

With this, our goal is to turn what can be a seemingly endless and frustrating journey to finding the right piano into an enjoyable and exciting experience.

About Our Used Inventory

All of the used pianos you will find in our inventory have been meticulously inspected by our experienced technicians and have been approved by them for resale. When we receive a used piano, our piano technicians evaluate each instrument and determine if any piano parts need to be repaired, replaced, refinished or in some cases – completely restored. If a piano arrives that cannot be repaired to the Steinway Standard, these pianos will not be available for sale.

Every used piano we sell comes with a 5-year parts and labor Music Gallery dealer warranty which protects your investment. 


In addition to carrying pianos designed by Steinway, we often receive pianos built by other manufacturers that have been traded in. Some of these pre-owned pianos include Kawai, Mason & Hamlin, Baldwin, Chickering, and Yamaha. When we receive a pre-owned piano on-trade, these pianos are thoroughly inspected by our highly-trained piano technicians.
