Why buy a piano from us?
While other piano retailers have independent piano tuners they hire and limit the services they provide to each piano (due to cost) we have a Steinway & Sons trained Technician on staff who makes sure each piano, (new and used) reaches it’s best possible playing condition before it arrives in your home. It’s our commitment to each piano that makes us different. That’s why your next piano should come from Pritchard’s!
We have been chosen by Steinway to represent their pianos, we are one of only 62 retailers in the United States to meet Steinway’s demanding criteria. In a sense, Steinway has done all the shopping for you.. they have already selected the Best Piano retailer in the area; Pritchards!
