Acoustic Piano - Yamaha Upright Model
We just bought a refurbished Yamaha Upright Model for Zoey to replace the existing Digital Piano that we bought about 3 years ago. The Digital Piano which currently used will be shifted to Atuk Mama House for daily practice for my 2 sons while they are in Ampang.
Now ..we are getting smarter after reading and surfing and asking Yamaha Music teacher, then now my tips for those who is looking for piano for the first time:-
1. Look for acoustic piano and not digital piano if you buy for a long term...for suka-suka tak kisah lah whether a digital or acoustic;
2. Look for brand Yamaha or Kawai only [good re-sale value and can support till grade 8]
3. If you buy a refurbished or used piano - please refer to the serial number inside of the piano..each piano has special numbers..."lagi banyak number serial lagi baru piano itu" or else you go to http://www.yamaha.co.jp/ for further detail to check the year of manufacture and serial number. A serial number is likes a birth cert for the particular piano.
4. Look for Asian market model a not Europe or North America; each continent has diff rent type local humidity. the piano is made tailor made to the environment and where the piano will localize. This is to avoid dryness and complication in later day...
