Regulating the piano keys and action enables the technician to change the touch, consistency and physical performance of your instrument. There are many moving parts within the piano which from time to time will need attention, regulating and servicing due to wear and tear.

Buying a Piano from AMH Questions

Great question and we are pleased to inform you, yes we do. Please visit our pianos for sale page and bookmark the page as we will regularly update the page as we clear out stock and get new stock in.

It all comes down to the craftsmanship of a piano, consider what materials have been used to create this elegant instrument. It has always been known that a player will always know when a piano belongs to them. If your piano doesn't suit you, then it's not for you.

If you want an excellent piano without extensive research and testing, then you can't go wrong with a decent high-end range Yamaha or Kawai, these are among the most popular in London and the UK because frankly they're designed so well.

First, you need to decide if you want to go acoustic or digital, both have pros and cons. Digital pianos are more suitable for people that want to produce all types of sounds and want to be able to edit those on a computer, while an acoustic produces a set amount of tones and pitches.

Learning either will mean you should be able to switch from one to the other without a huge learning curve, its like learning to drive a car, and then having to learn to drive a truck, learning to drive anything, is going to help you learn the other, faster.

You will also need to consider space since a digital keyboard takes up far less space than an acoustic piano. Once you have to decide which type of piano you wish to learn, its time to choose the brand and model.

For digital keyboards, you can't go wrong with a decent Casio, Yamaha or Roland. We recommend the Casio CDP-S100 Slimline Digital Piano since it has a realistic playing feel, powerful performance, impressive connectivity and is perfectly portable.

For acoustic pianos, decide what type you want, e.g. upright, baby grand or grand. Then pick manufacture, we recommend going with a Yamaha or Kawai as they make incredible sounds, and they hold their market value far more than the less known brands. For beginners, we recommend the Yamaha U1 as it has a 10-year warranty, it is built to last, solid investment and great for learning.

A skilled technician will have worked on many pianos sounding out of shape. Most pianos may need a tuning service to bring the life back where others may need to be restored. Our highly experienced technicians can take a look and bring back even the most neglected piano back to life.

We do not actively buy pianos direct from the public as we have limited storage and only obtain pianos when we have space to store them. You can view many of our pianos for sale in London online.

If you can't find something you like, then we recommend reputable piano re-sellers on eBay. It is always best to purchase a piano through these parties as you can have full confidence with the piano.

You should try and avoid purchasing a piano privately unless you have had it inspected by a technician as often there are more problems then stated.

Pianos should always be inspected thoroughly internally and externally before any decision is made. A quality seller will let you try out the piano, make sure all keys are healthy, and there are no issues.

As long as you keep up with maintenance and give you piano a healthy life in the right environment, your piano will give you a lifetime of enjoyment.

You will need to contact a second-hand piano shop for a valuation on your piano. You will need to take into consideration the age, condition, damage and other factors during this. Certain brands and models of pianos will exceed a better valuation than others.

There are main types of pianos, these are acoustic pianos and electric pianos which are also known as keyboards. AMH Piano Services London only deal with acoustic pianos, and these types are upright, grand and baby grand and may include modifications such as silent mods.

Silent pianos are an acoustic piano where there is an option to silence the strings by stopping the piano hammers from striking them, this is known in the industry as a silent modification.

When it comes to upright, the strings of the piano are strung vertically, this allows the instrument to be more compact and can be placed in a limited space.

With a grand piano, the strings are strung horizontally and have a better potential for expression. When it comes to size, the more you play the grand piano, the more advantages you get from it.

The mechanics within a grand piano move with gravity whereas an upright piano is aided by the strings to reset the keys being pressed. A grand piano will always be superior, but that doesn't mean an upright doesn't sound fantastic, to most, untrained ears, there is no difference.

The difference between an acoustic and digital piano is the mechanism that produces the sound. A digital piano has no strings; each key is a switch to produce a sound which is amplified by a speaker. In comparison, an acoustic piano has hammers and steel strings that when hit cause a vibration to produce the sound.

Piano Restoration Questions

Once we have an appointment with yourself, we will come to inspect the piano to see how much of a restoration you need. During the inspection, we check the damage and establish the cost of hours it will take to rebuild and repair.

We also factor in the costs of things such as parts, materials and transportation. We will pick up the piano and take it to one of our piano workshops in London, where all the magic happens.

It's hard to give you a rough estimate as you can imagine but to give you a rough idea, a restoration typically starts between £2,000 and £3,000 then upwards. Sometimes its cheaper to buy a new piano than it is to restore one.

Particular branded piano antiques or classical pianos can be worth restoring if they are a particular type of piano that is highly desirable by collectors, and pianists.

Another reason could be the piano has been within the family for many generations making it priceless and something they want to keep traditional to pass onto their kids, and then their kids after that.

But whatever the reason you may have to want to restore your piano, know that our team can fully build all types of pianos from the ground upwards. Replacing parts, repairing, or replacing the frame, or woodwork.

AMH has a renowned reputation in restoring all types of pianos. Our team love a restoration project and can get very tired pianos back to full health again. Please take a look at our restoration page for more details.

General Piano Questions
