The Piano Makers Most Suited To You!

It can be hard to move away from the makes of piano you became comfortable with in school or college. Most people’s ready available advice is habitually based on what they have used when studying, or second hand advice from another party.

That is not to say that such advice should be disregarded, quite the opposite in fact. However if someone’s advice is based upon there knowledge of playing 4 – 5 different makes of piano then it could be suggested that it is a fairly limited guidance!

Did you play a certain make when you were studying, and still feel like you are drawn back to that make because it is what you know?

Practically every concert venue, school, sixth form, college and recording studio purchase either a Steinway & Sons, Yamaha or Kawai piano. All superb instruments but not necessarily the makes most suited to you….

Don’t feel pressured into living with one of the popular makes you see everywhere. Popular does not always mean they are they best for your needs or the best generally!

Remember:

The reasons behind establishments choosing to use certain brands of piano has little to do with your individual needs, financial plan, likes or dislikes.  More often that not a institution will be awash with one or two particular makers,this is because they signed on the dotted line to take part in some type of ‘free loan piano education’ package.  What that means is the institution can use many new pianos that it would not otherwise of been able to afford in a single purchase.

Such contracts are worth hundreds of thousands of pounds to the manufacturers, and in turn gives the brand great exposure. Its well understood by the manufactures that such exposure through very appealing contracts develops a natural amount of loyalty from the people playing the pianos.

When institutions & concert venues make such purchases it is usually the ‘best deal’ at the time that wins.

It would be interesting to work out how many makes of piano you know, and what makes in that list you have actually played?  Also what makes of piano do you have an opinion about but have never played?

In most peoples opinion Steinway & Sons are the Rolls Royce of the piano world, however why did one of the greatest acclaimed jazz pianist of all time choose to play Bosendorfer pianos?

Image

Oscar Peterson was a Bosendorfer artist

Elton John since the early 1970’s has been one of the most influential pop pianists of our time. An accomplished pianist who studied at the Royal College of Music, he plays Yamaha pianos.

Richard Wagner was a gifted pianist and composer, he was obsessed with the service his Erard piano constantly gave to him throughout his life. I’m surprised he didn’t write an opera named after the maker!

Image

Richard Wagners Erard grand piano

The above is an example of individual taste, and individual requirements, not all of us feel comfortable playing what others consider the ‘Rolls Royce’ or ‘BMW Sport’ of their piano world

With some practical research and opportunity’s we can discover what our perfect instrument is, and what suits and compliments our playing style the best.

In our last auction we had over 80% of the respected makers of piano in the auction room. Our next auction is on April 5th 2014  in Manchester and we hope to have the same & more! It is a great opportunity for you to come and play many different makes of piano and create your own opinions and enhance your knowledge of the leading makers in the piano world. You never know what you might find!

Don’t forget there are always bargains to be had at our auctions!

So remember that the institutions have very different needs than you do, so become well acquainted with the other makers of piano!

Ferrari & Bentley to name but a few would never of stood the test of time if with blinkers we all bought Rolls Royce cars. Not only would this of been a great shame but it would of  deprived many a good motorist of a most agreeable ride!
