Dear All,

I'm eyeing on a 1982 Kawai NS10 piano for sale for $2600. Seller said it was purchased a few years ago, and was "refurbished" but not sure when. Would this be a good buy?

Thank you.

Eja:

There's no way for anyone on this forum to tell you whether this is a good buy without knowing the condition of the piano. Whatever the owner may think or tell you, the condition of the piano can only be determined by a reputable piano technician examining the piano.

A 36-year old piano may be in need of considerable repair, depending upon the use it has had, the environment in which it has been used and the maintenance it has had. That said, this could be a good piano, but there's no way to tell without a professional evaluation.

Regards,


BruceD

Further:

If you do have this piano inspected by a technician, do get the serial number so that the date of manufacture - hence, age - of the piano can accurately be determined, unless that has already been verified.

Regards,

Thank you for your input, BruceD, I will certainly get a technician to check on it. And I did verify the serial number to be one that was manufactured in the early 80s.

I just want to find out if this is a model that is worth looking into. I cannot find much info regarding NS10, although the NS20 seems to be a good one. I just want to see if I should consider it at all.

Thank you.
