Mundt Music carries new and used pianos. Whether you're looking for an entry level upright for your child to begin their studies in music or a polished ebony grand piano for the auditorium at your school, you can find it at Mundt Music.
How do you go about deciding which is the best piano for you?
First, keep in mind that you will be listening to, and looking at, your piano for a long time. The average lifetime of a piano is about 40 years, and you will probably have it long after you have sold your present furniture, house and car. Pianos depreciate very little. A used piano built 10 years ago and maintained well will cost almost as much as a comparable new piano. So buy the best piano you can afford. Especially, don't try to economize on a piano for a child who's starting lessons. Making good music on a quality instrument is the best way to keep a young pianist interested.
Which type of piano is for you?
Almost since the first piano was built, manufacturers have been trying to make it smaller. This has been no easy task, because good tone in a piano requires certain minimums in length of string and size of soundboard. First, the size of the original grand piano was cut by the use of stronger frames and an innovative system of cross-stringing, Then, in the late 1800's, the upright or vertical piano was developed, sending the space-consuming bulk of the instrument up along the wall, rather than out across the floor. This was so successful that today some larger professional-quality uprights can have equal or better tone quality than many small grands. Eventually, even the upright was shortened, and in some cases ingenious scale design compensates in tone for the loss of size. Still, this rule of thumb generally applies: the larger the piano, the better the tone.
Keyboards and Digital Pianos
Mundt Music also carries Yamaha and Roland keyboards, from inexpensive 61-key keyboards to high-end studio level workstations, and on up to the digital piano line. Mundt Music has it all.
