Hi, I 'm a beginner in the world of piano and would like to know your opinion regarding my future purchase of these pianos :

Petrof 125 M1 hammers Renner, 2006 , played three years , black lacquered to 3100 Euro
Vs
Ibach 116 1981 burr walnut lacquer.Rehabilitated in 2010 before resale to 6,000 euros , sold now for me 3000 euros.

It also offers me a Schimmel 116 s 1997 sold by a professional 3200 euros. But I think the Petrof and Ibach are more romantic ( I love round and warm sound )

I'm sorry for my English , I am French . Thank you to those who take time to answer me , I must give a quick answer to this price...

Hi Aless, and welcome to Piano World!

I'm not a pro, but my thinking is that all three pianos are excellent brands and either would be a nice piano, depending on actual condition.

As for me, I'd opt for the taller of the three; but that is just my opinion.

If I were you, I'd buy the one I like the best in terms of tone, touch and appearance.

Good luck!

Rick

Aless,

What do you mean by "rehabilitated"? Depending on the extent of the work, and the current wear on the instrument, the Ibach could be a good deal.

As Rick wrote, it is important that you play the instruments and choose according to tone, touch and appearance. If necessary, take someone with you who can play reasonably well.
