Superior Service

We are the only store in Arizona where every  piano on our floor is in perfect condition because it is looked after daily by our Master Technicians.

100% Satisfaction Guarantee

We are the only store in Arizona with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. If you purchase an instrument and it does not sound as you like in your home or you simply want to change, we will return your money (minus a moving charge) or exchange your instrument for another one at no cost at all.

Finest Brands 

We carry the finest pianos made today by the leading piano manufacturer families. Fazioli, for example, is considered currently the best piano for the concert stage and is built by Paolo Fazioli in Italy. Sauter is the world’s oldest piano maker. The Sauter Family is located in the Black Forest in Germany since 1819 and their pianos sound magical. Hailun pianos have overtaken its competitors and offer instruments that are better built with more sophisticated technology at a friendlier price. 

Largest Selection in Arizona

We have the most diverse selection of instruments in Arizona and in addition to that are affiliated with the one of the largest piano retail stores in the US. No other store in Arizona has access to as many pianos locally and nationally as we do.
