Reviews - What do customers think about 2007-2008 Annual Supplement to The Piano Book: Buying & Owning a New or Used Piano (Annual Supplement to the Piano Book)?
Best Resource Available For Professionals and Hobby Piano players May 16, 2008
I enjoyed Fine's first book and have recommended it to clients wanting to buy a new piano. I have seen first hand how it saved some clients tons of money. For those who already have the first book, I highly recommend buying this updated version.
A great reference May 11, 2008
I would seriously recommend this book to anyone thinking of buying a new piano. It lists every brand I've ever heard of and many I haven't. There is a tier system set up so you can compare brands within a price range. My wife and I learned a lot about pianos in general, which helped us make our decision as to which one to buy. It's a supplement to the main book and comes out every year.
Invaluable source Feb 26, 2008
Larry Fine's book is an invaluable source not only for those of us in the piano business, but for anyone who owns a piano and especially for those who are seeking to purchase one. I highly recommend it.
essential for piano shoppers Feb 8, 2008
This little book is worth it's price many times over for those seriously piano shopping. I learned so much about pianos and brands. I've played a wonderful Kawai upright for 16 years and am ready to purchase a grand. I thought all these brands I'd never heard of before were "no-names", definitely not what I wanted. Well, after a month of research and many trips to piano stores, I am buying one of those no-names! My Estonia 190 (6'3") will be delivered in a week!
Excellent, As Touted Jan 10, 2008
