Where To Buy Acoustic Pianos and Keyboards
BigWrench Piano Co – Brian Whiton has been running a piano store in Brooklyn since 2002 and has recently relocated to the corner of Hoyt and Degraw. He’s got a bunch of pianos which he sources, rebuilds and then sells at a great price. I saw and played a bunch of nice Steinways, Yamahas and even some reconditioned Wurlitzer and Rhodes. He’s an official Yamaha keyboard dealer and is offering great starter packages with the option of full credit for trade-up to acoustic piano in the future.
