Buying a used upright piano?

Purchasing a used piano can be a great option for those seeking a quality instrument at a more affordable price. However, it's important to consider several factors to ensure you make a wise investment. In Cambodia, where the demand for pianos is growing, being aware of these considerations will help you make an informed decision.

In this article, we will explore the key factors to keep in mind when buying a used piano in Cambodia.

Quality and Condition

At The Piano Shop Cambodia, we inspect each piano carefully for any signs of wear, damage, or mechanical issues. We look for tuning stability, key movement, and overall sound quality. As professional technicians, we only display and sell instruments that pass our high standards. You're in safe hands with a 10-year-guarantee on used instruments.

Brand and Reputation

Research reputable piano brands known for their durability, sound quality, and long-term value. Brands like Yamaha and Kawai have a strong presence in the Cambodian market and are trusted by many musicians and piano enthusiasts, however some minor brands can also be very good value.

Age and History

Take into account the age of the piano and its maintenance history. Generally, pianos that have been well-maintained and regularly serviced tend to offer better performance and longevity.

Playability and Sound

Play the piano and assess its playability and sound quality. Pay attention to factors such as touch, tone, and responsiveness. It is essential to find an instrument that suits your playing style and preferences. We can help you decide what's best for you.


Determine your budget and explore different pricing options. Keep in mind that used pianos are available at various price ranges depending on factors such as brand, condition, and age. Consider balancing your budget with the quality and longevity of the instrument.


Ensure the piano's authenticity by verifying the origin and legitimacy of the instrument. Avoid purchasing pianos with questionable backgrounds or uncertain sources. Our inventory is fully checked and original.

Moving and Transportation

Consider the logistics of moving and transporting the piano to your desired location. Ensure you have a plan in place for professional piano movers or adequate transportation arrangements to protect the instrument during transit. We offer this service inclusive of your purchase in Phnom Penh.

Aftercare and Service

Consider the availability of aftercare services and technical support. It is beneficial to choose a seller or dealer that offers inclusive aftercare services, including piano tuning, maintenance, and repairs. Again, we offer this inclusive when you buy from us.
