Buying Musical Instruments: 3 Tips to Pick The Perfect Piano , Dothan, Alabama

Whether you’ve deciding to pick up a new hobby or want to instill a love of music in young children, the professionals at Whitman Music & Computers know there are several things you should keep in mind when shopping for the perfect piano for your household. Since 1985, they’ve been providing people throughout Dothan, AL, and the surrounding area with high-quality musical instruments.

Below, the staff at Whitman Music & Computers shares three things you should keep in mind when shopping for a piano:

  • Ease While Playing: You want to make sure you feel comfortable while playing, so touch the keyboards on several pianos to decide which one is most responsive to your fingers. It takes longer for upright piano keys to return to the resting position, while grand pianos are more responsive.
  • Musical InstrumentsMusical Tone: Play a few chords on several pianos to determine which tone you like best. There are several upright pianos on the market, which produce warm, rich sounds. Grand versions are known for finer tonality. If you aren’t sure what you want, consider an electric piano. You can easily adjust the settings to achieve different tones.
  • Size: A concert grand would take up a lot of room in a tiny apartment, so definitely factor in the size of your place before purchasing a piano. If you have a confined area, small to mid-size uprights like spinets, consoles, and studios are good for tight quarters. Petite, baby, and medium grand pianos are best for larger spaces.  

If you’re searching for a high-quality piano for sale, visit Whitman Music & Computers. The knowledgeable staff will help you navigate the options to find the right instrument for your needs. They’ll also provide piano repair, tuning, and tips for at-home care. The shop’s assortment of musical instruments also includes drums, band products, and guitars for sale.
