Dean’s List Pianos

Kramer’s Piano Shop has an alternative if you are looking for an inexpensive bargain piano.  We have developed our own inexpensive piano list for you to consider.  These are pianos that have not yet been reconditioned, so that you can purchase them at lower price points and decide for yourself how much work you would have done on the piano according to your budget.

How It Works

  • A thorough evaluation is done by owner/technician, Dean Kramer, who has over 40 years of experience.
  • You can customize the price of your piano by your own budget. We will offer several possible options for you to consider for improving the piano, should you choose to do so. The amount of work varies for each piano due to several variables.
  • You can choose to move the piano yourself to save money, or fill out a moving estimate form to get a quote for delivery by Kramer’s professional movers. (If you move the piano yourself, we ask that you sign a waiver, freeing K.P.S. from any responsibility)
  • You may choose to lower the price further by refusing to have the piano tuned by our staff.
  • No warranty is offered, unless you choose a repair option for K.P.S. to do.  Any work done on a “Dean’s List” piano will receive a 6 month warranty on that work only.
  • If we fully recondition a piano, it will receive a 5 year warranty, a free delivery, and a free tuning (w/in 50 miles of our store).
  • Options will be available as well to clean up the exterior of the piano and polish all the brass if you so desire.

 

Feel free to contact our piano workshop manager with any questions you may have at donnie@kramerspianoshop.com.

 

What kinds of pianos are we offering? 

  • Pianos with lots of life left on them.
  • Pianos with no structural problems.
  • Pianos that may not be popular in color or style to put on our sales floor.
  • Pianos that we have taken in on a trade and we don’t have enough space to keep it in our inventory.

 

To see the work list of what a reconditioning consists of for our vertical pianos click here for our Reconditioning Worksheet.

A full reconditioning can always be done for the piano at a later date. Piano moving costs will apply in order to have the piano moved back to our store for the work to be done, and then delivered back to your home.
