You can have your skills polished whilst being silent to everyone else
Generally speaking regarding instruments, a grand piano is more of a special order. It’s the top choice of classical pianists, music legends, and often the focal point of galas, concerts, and events. A grand pianos sound is uncompromised, natural, rich, and deep with harmonic transitions and the ability to project sound around magnificently large spaces. A digital piano doesn’t have its own hammers or strings and its audio is produced through electronic speakers that mimic the audio of acoustic pianos, such as a Yamaha grand. A high end, Yamaha digital piano can produce as good audio, or better, as a lower end acoustic piano and is often the preferred choice for people who have smaller spaces and budgets. With a digital piano, there is the further advantage of little-to-no maintenance - not the case with Grand Pianos.

Are used pianos for sale as good new pianos?
A 50-year-old, well-cared-for Grand Piano can be in much better condition than a 5-year-old badly treated Grand Piano. Although age should be considered if you’re buying used instruments online, it isn’t as important as the maintenance history of the instrument. To buy a used piano online takes much thought, it may look perfect on the outside, but inside could be a different matter altogether. You should always enquire with the seller and make sure that when you do enquire you ask the right questions, such as if they have a service history for the grand piano and if you can arrange to view it before committing to buying. If a grand piano hasn’t been regularly maintained, serviced, tuned, or cleaned it could have rusted beyond repair. You may find a used grand piano on a list page of piano special offers where many pre-loved instruments, including guitars, will have great offers and sale discounts at your time of order.
