Thinking about picking up an instrument? If so, many automatically gravitate toward the piano. But, beyond taking lessons, how will you practice in your home? The short answer is, find a piano for sale from Alamo Music Center. Begin your search online, or explore deals, size and sound quality at our brick-and-mortar locations in San Antonio, Austin and St. Louis.
The Best Piano Deals
Deciding to pick up piano is a significant investment. You'll need an instrument, along with lessons, books and other supplies like a metronome. Long term, you'll need to think about maintenance, including keeping your piano in tune.
Alamo Music Center gets you started by offering quality new and used pianos for sale. Our selection covers a full spectrum of instruments, from grand and baby grand pianos to upright models to digital and hybrids. Furthermore, we carry instruments from some of the most recognizable piano manufacturers, including Yamaha, Kawai, Roland, Steinway & Sons, Casio and Baldwin.
Finding a Piano
A piano is never just a piano. As such, even if you're shopping a sale, you should understand what you want or need from the get-go, be it a model that saves space, one that's built for practicing, or one that can affordably complete your concert or performance facility:
- Grand Pianos: This is the original, plain and simple. Concert models are nearly nine feet long, while baby grand pianos are a space-saving five-foot long alternative. Producing the most resonant sound and the most natural action, grand pianos situate the strings horizontally, allowing gravity to assist with how the hammers and dampers move.
- Upright: For a practice piano, uprights have been the choice for years by conservatories, music schools and homeowners wanting an acoustic, fully natural sound and feel. Upright pianos arrange the strings so that they run top to bottom – and are thus perpendicular to the keys. Because of the vertical shape, uprights are ideal when you don't have the space for a full grand or baby grand but want an acoustic piano.
- Digital and Hybrid: These technologies took off in the 1980s, and today, digital and hybrid pianos blend a close-to-authentic feel while playing back samples of an acoustic piano. As a benefit, these models conserve space, are easily portable, and often let you plug in a set of headphones for practicing.
Locations for Trying Out Pianos
All instruments can be browsed online, as can sale prices. Yet, in the business for over 90 years, we know how important it is to try out a piano, no matter how good of a deal you come across. Whether you're in the market for a grand or baby grand, want to make the move from a keyboard to an upright to practice, or are looking for a more advanced digital piano, Alamo Music Center has two locations in San Antonio, plus two Kawai Showrooms:
