Starter Pianos

What is a Starter Piano?

At Piano Pathways, a “starter” piano is a piano that requires a minimal investment yet is mechanically suitable for beginners as well as all levels of skill.  All of our starter pianos are warranted (parts and labor) AND come with an in-home tuning.  Piano Pathways 10-year trade up policy gives you 100% “Full Value” of your original price should you decide to upgrade!  Our starter pianos have been checked over by our technicians and are very sound in tuning stability and key-and-action response for playing, practicing, and developing musicianship skills for both children and adults.

Our age criterion does not focus on “birth age” but “mechanical age!”  When you buy a NEW piano, you have 65 – 70 years of mechanical life for normal “home use” before you may refurbish hammers, dampers, strings, etc.  If a piano was manufactured 40 years ago and has only been played “one-half” (20 yrs) of that time, you still have 40 + years of mechanical life remaining–that’s two generations!  All of our pianos have guaranteed tuning-stability. While most starter pianos will serve for several decades, most people will want to trade up their piano (using our 10-year trade up program) as their skill-level improves.
