Whether you are an absolute beginner or an advanced pianist and know exactly what you want or not yet, choosing a upright or grand piano is usually not easy.

We can talk about pianos for hours! We have the answer to all your questions, or at least can find out quickly. Contact us with specific questions via the chat feature, by phone, or in person! In any case, below you can already find the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions.


Vraag en antwoord

  • Do you have a brand or model you prefer, but you don't want to buy yet? Or do you want to spread the payment of your instrument over 50 months? Then you can opt for our leasing formula.

    The minimum rental term is 18 months. However, if you continue to rent, you become the owner of the piano after 50 months. 

    All acoustic and digitale pianos with a catalogue price between 2,500 and 15,000 euros are available for installment plan. Portable (stage piano's) and some other selected instruments are an exception and are not offered in an installment plan.

    In our webshop, you can see the rent price for each eligible piano quickly and easily!

  • Wil je graag piano leren spelen, maar twijfel je nog over welke piano bij jou past? Dan is het huren van een piano misschien iets voor jou!

    Afhankelijk van uw wensen kunt u kiezen voor een digitale ("elektrische") piano, een akoestische piano, of een stil-akoestische piano (dit is een akoestische piano, voorzien van een digitaal systeem dat het spelen met een koptelefoon mogelijk maakt).

    Een digitale piano huur je voor € 49,00 per maand, een akoestische buffetpiano voor € 59,00 per maand. Een silent-piano kan je huren voor € 79,00 per maand. Een akoestische vleugel is te huur voor € 99,00 per maand (beschikbaarheid  van vleugels is beperkt, vraag ernaar bij je consultant.)

    U kunt uw piano ook direct online huren. Wilt u een instrument kopen na verhuur? Dan heb je vrije keuze uit ons gehele aanbod en mag je tot twaalf maanden huur voor de helft aftrekken op een nieuwe of tweedehands piano vanaf € 3.600 netto.

  • A piano, which is a stringed instrument with hammers, dampers, pedals and a soundboard. It is one of the most complex and sound-rich musical instruments! A digital piano tries to approximate the experience and sound of an acoustic instrument - and succeeds - to a certain degree.

    It goes without saying that it is best to learn to play the piano on a "real" instrument - playing acoustically remains an enormous added value for beginning and experienced pianists. Our advice remains: if you want to play or learn to play the piano well, it is best to choose an acoustic piano or grand piano.

    Digital pianos today are a good alternative if there are practical limitations that make an acoustic instrument unfeasible. Are you creatively involved in music and do you often use your tablet or PC for this? Then digital pianos offer a sea of possibilities.

    Do you want to have it both ways? With a silent-acoustic piano, you can combine the pleasure of playing and the musical richness of an acoustic piano with the features of a digital one.

  • A quality acoustic piano, if properly maintained, will last a lifetime!

    We strongly advise you to have your piano tuned at least once a year. Do you play often, or is the piano in a room with an unstable climate? Then twice a year is not unusual at all.

    During tuning, our tuner piano technician will thoroughly inspect your instrument. Potential problems are thus quickly detected and solved.

    Your tuner assists you with advice on the maintenance of your instrument. We meticulously keep the maintenance history of your piano up to date. This way we keep your piano in top condition!

  • Do you have an old grand piano or buffet piano of high quality, such as instruments by Steinway & Sons, Bechstein, Bösendorfer, Erard, Broadwood or another A-brand?

We can also restore the furniture to the finest detail, with respect for the original finishing techniques. More information about piano restoration.
