Used Piano Center!
Carefully selected hardly used pianos from Steinway, Yamaha, Bechstein, Bosendorfer, Mason & Hamlin, Kawai, Wm. Knabe, Boston, Baldwin, Ibach, Chickering, and more.
The best answer is a low wear, quality built used piano because as everyone knows:
"THINGS ARE NOT MADE AS THEY ONCE WERE!"
New pianos today have cheaper materials, less quality and workmanship due to economic stresses on manufacturers and the expense of good raw materials. Even the premium piano makers have had to adjust to lesser materials because of scarcity of the quality materials, once plentiful, and easily found in the older used pianos! Sadly, it is no longer cost effective to purchase a new piano due to these factors.
So the best solution is a QUALITY USED PIANO that has been completely
refurbished. Remember that a well built piano was
made to last 75 to 100 years!
Many American-made pianos have a life of 100 years due to domestic quality materials and construction. If you notice, you rarely will see a used imported piano that is over 25 years old! Only a well-made Japanese piano can last up from 65 to 80 years if humidity is properly controlled. But, most high quality used pianos of American manufacture are found up to 100 to 150 years old and still playing!
We encourage you to come in and see the quality and value of the huge selection restored of used pianos and COMPARE !!!

Watts & Evan Tublitz
(Worked together for over 35 years!)
Arguably a specialist in European Pianos and in concert
preparation, Mr. Tublitz has pioneered significant techniques in achieving world
class performance on everyday pianos. He believes that the knowledge he learned
at Ibach, Steinway, Yamaha, Petrof and other piano factories has enabled him to
utilize selected techniques used in piano regulation and tonal finishing to
greatly enhance the most humble of instruments.
Having sold his chain of stores in upstate New York, he is now free to pursue a less hectic schedule allowing him to personally attend to every detail in his shop. He has developed the concept of USED PIANO CENTER as a way of offering a quality alternative without the typical marketing subterfuge. He combs the country for the finest values in pianos and is very selective in order to be able to offer the quality and value at each price range. Each piano is notable in its performance for its size and ability to sing and express the player's innermost emotions!
Community Service & Giving Back
Evan Tublitz has been very active in the local community events and organizations. A past President of Hudson-Adirondack chapter of the Piano Technicians Guild (PTG) and past Certified Tuning Examiner for the PTG, he currently serves on the Board of Directors of Troy Chromatic Concerts, Inc. (one of the oldest concert series in the US)
Until recently,Mr. Tublitz has served on the Board of Directors of the Mechanicville Area Community Services Center -- a social service agency that serves many communities in Saratoga County. He also is a founding member of Gratis Public Relations -- an organization dedicated to broadening awareness of the benefits of the Mechanicville/Stillwater area. Having been very active in local community revitalization, Mr. Tublitz has served on numerous local committees.
This past year, at the request of Joseph Dalton, the esteemed music critic of the Albany Times Union, Evan Tublitz is now blogging about music and pianos on the very popular local Hudson Sounds.org website. Come visit!
