A beautifully well-preserved one-owner locally purchased piano!
Audio clip below – Ryan Sowers improvising – headphones or good speakers recommended.
This piano was purchased originally by a local much-loved and respected piano teacher and client of ours. Soundboard is in pristine condition, strings are shiny, keys are smooth, but not loose, and the hammers are in beautiful shape with many years of use left in them.
The finish has some minor wear and tear and a few of the keys have a hairline crack that is strictly cosmetic.

Why Buy a Piano From Us?
Our overhead is super low, because we are a real “Mom and Pop” operation. Our little piano shop is located at our home near downtown Olympia, so we don’t have to pay for commercial retail space. We are family owned and operated and we don’t hire professional salespeople. That means the money you pay for our instruments goes into refined workmanship that makes our play and sound better than others you may have tried. Yet, if you compare our prices you’ll see we are very competitive.
We service pianos for many of the prestigious teachers and performers in the area. Ryan ‘s dedication to the Piano Technicians Guild has allowed him to study with some of the most well-respected technicians in the United States. Ryan has received specialized training at both Yamaha North American Headquarters in Los Angeles, and the Steinway & Sons factory in New York. Ryan’s résumé
As an advanced pianist, Ryan can experience the instrument not just as a technician, but as a musician. This allows him to bring a level of refinement to his technical work that would not otherwise be possible.
When you come to see one of our pianos you won’t be pressured into making a decision right away. In fact, we always encourage people to take their time when purchasing a piano. What is important is that you make the right choice for you. Since you’ll be dealing directly with the technician you’ll be sure to get accurate information without all the sales hype. Even if you don’t buy one of our pianos it will be an educational experience.
We have a few pianos in the wings! Two mid-century spinets: a Baldwin Acrosonic and an Everett. Both will be priced around $2700. Also a mid-century Wurlitzer 45″ studio piano in great shape for $3200.
