I love my piano, but sadly I have to part with it and I am looking for a pianist that will appreciate and take care of it.

In short, it's a black, Yamaha Classic Collection Grand Piano (GA1) with matching stool. Not a single scratch on the piano – believe me, I love this thing.

It's hard to adequately describe the pleasure I get from playing this instrument. I have played super warm pianos, with what feels like a slower action, or what I consider "mushy keys," and I have played bright pianos that feel very tight and sound crisp. This piano is on the brighter side, but I would not call it bright. I did my best to find the just right balance in between. It's responsive, emotive, and to my ears, has such a well-rounded tone.

Come for a test drive!

I would want to try any instrument before buying it of course, but hopefully the descriptions can help you narrow down your search before driving all over to try them. So, if you're in the Metro-Detroit area, please come test it out for yourself.

Price $4,900 ?

I know, the most annoying thing when shopping is when a price isn't listed. To be honest, I'm not sure what a fair price would be! I am asking for $4,900 but considering other offers. If you have an ad for another piano you're considering, I may match or beat the price. Just let me know what you have to work with. Most importantly I want a happy pianist.


My iPhone mic doesn't do it justice, but in case it helps, a few clips are below. Make sure you click the speaker button in the top left corner to turn on sound for either video.
