"The Kawai sounds beautiful in our home and makes a fine centerpiece in our living room. I am very pleased with the player system and keep it on as often as I can. My daughter has not had her first lesson yet but is sitting down to sight read music from her favorite musicals. Some of my wife's repertoire from childhood is beginning to return. I'm very please with the choice of piano and the final cost of everything involved. Thank you for your help through the entire process of acquiring our first piano. We would not have been this satisfied without your help."

  Petrof Model P III (Seattle) Sold to a discriminating pianist in Bellevue, WA!

6 feet 4 inches, with adjustable duet artists bench.
Petrof pianos are manufactured by hand in the Czech Republic and are highly regarded for their craftsmanship and lyrical tone. I always encourage my students to purchase a Petrof--whenever one can be found--for their satisfying expressive capabilities and excellent value.  In our opinion, the 6' 4" Petrof outperforms many European, Asian, and costlier American instruments of its size. The sound of this Petrof is inviting, lyrical, powerful but never harsh. Petrofs are capable of a large dynamic range, from sparkling bell-like clarity (great for projecting the melody above the harmony) to soft, dark sonorities. This is a piano that can play whisper-soft pianissimos. The sound is focused with the sustain characteristic of European pianos. So it's a wonderful instrument for the classical piano repertoire. With its sparkle and clarity of tone, it's also a great instrument for jazz players!  In his authoritative reference The Piano Book, Larry Fine ranks Petrof above Asian pianos. Petrof pianos are becoming increasingly rare and costly owing to limited production and export.

A sweet powerhouse with real eye-appeal, refinished and completely rebuilt with a new soundboard, this Sohmer is a wonderful find.

Unfamiliar with the Sohmer manufacturer? Larry Fine, author of The Piano Book, includes Sohmer in his list of most highly regarded pianos prior to 1930, along with Steinway, Knabe, Bosendorfer, Baldwin, Mason and Hamlin, A.B. Chase, among others. "During its many years in New York, the Sohmer piano was known as a fine handcrafted instrument. Sohmer had a close, informal association with the other major New York piano maker, Steinway, and many of Sohmer's manufacturing methods were similar to Steinway's."
