For those interested to know the gender, if it comes without a pianist, then it's a female piano.

 

Just saying.

I think Yamaha has a buy back scheme 

 

The Christifori shop in Parkway Parade has used pianos for sale - perhaps they would be willing to buy from you? 

 

Otherwise ebay? 

 

Won't be easy to sell, and likely won't get back anything close to what you paid for it

Is it a necessity to change pianos after a few years, considering their condition will deteriorate and affect resale value?
Or just use till cui then buy a new one instead?

good piano can last a generation, if you visit the used piano shop, many Yamaha (made in Japan) are almost 10 years and still look and sound like new.

Yamaha baby is only 13k during sale...how come an upright so exp?

I bought my used bohemian at gramcery or something many moons ago when they were at katong area n there was a wide range of used pianos.

Didn't see any used ones when I went to their new outlet at ubi recently tho.

Unless one is of performance grade, can use until cui then get town council to dispose...
Just need to regularly tune n ensure the heater core is working.

you still need to tune it regularly unless you mean change the tuner, then maybe you need to change one   [laugh]

 

i bought a used made in china piano (more than 5 yrs old before we bought it) and my girl has been playing it for 14 years, after she done her grade 8 and we need more space in the room, decided to change to an electric piano and gave the old one away last year to a needy home whose little girl wish to have a piano.

Branded or no brand, pianos should be tuned every 6 months.

Thanks.. cos of this, i did a quick google and found others tune $70 while my regular guy charges me $80.

He also told me better change another piano cos my current one may not fetch good resale if it gets too old. 

My guess he wanted to make a second round from me from the sales/trade-in.

 

And yes, he has installed a second heater cos he claimed my place a little too moist and the first one isn't able to function effectively.

I also own a Made in Japan Yamaha U1. There are Yamaha pianos made in China and Indonesia too. Sorry to inform TS that resale value for used pianos is very, very low. Expect to take a big hit, possibly up to 50%. Age of piano is not that big a factor.

 

The Made in Japan Yamaha U1 will fetch a higher price compared to the Made in China or Indonesia.

Pianos can last for a long long time if regularly tuned. My first piano was a cheap tokai piano that was already more than 10 years old when I got it. Used it for another 3-4 years before upgrading.
