Appraisals and Estimates

By Email

We do not charge for looking at pictures emailed to us.

For a quick idea of what the condition of your piano is;
What your piano is worth;
What you should pay for a piano;
If a piano you are looking to purchase is a good idea;

Send us some pictures.

Please include your contact information, and tell us what you would like to know about the piano. 

The best pictures to send are:
1. An overall shot of the entire piano.
2. If it is an upright, lift the lid and get a shot of the serial number so we can look up the manufacturing date. If it is a grand piano, look under the music desk (where you set your music) for your serial number.

3. A shot of the high treble hammers, aiming your phone/camera straight down, like this:
