The most accurate way to determine the value of a used piano is to have a local piano technician, who has
experience with the piano sales market, perform a detailed assessment of the piano and its condition.
Used piano values are not determined by looking it up in a piano “blue book” – nor does the piano industry use any
such publication for a list of used piano prices. Unlike used cars, used pianos are not neatly categorized and valuated according to specific year, make,
model and features.
Many factors affect a piano’s value including: age, geographic location, the condition of the piano’s cabinet,
structure and inner parts, and the eagerness of the potential buyer (or seller).
Any piano is ultimately worth what someone is willing to pay for it, but many people have no idea even where to
start when it comes to pricing their piano once they intend to sell it. On the other hand, potential buyers are not sure
whether or not a used piano for sale is reasonably priced.
Many piano owners haven’t the slightest idea of whether or not their piano is worth a great deal, or next to nothing.
