Because shopping for a piano can often get confusing, here are some interesting facts about popular piano brands:
STEINWAY: The Steinway company does not actually make most of the pianos that they sell. Rather, they are made for Steinway by other established piano companies in countries overseas. This fact is concealed from any of their marketing while they claim superiority to those they actually rely on! Those well-established companies naturally make their own fine pianos, so significantly better values are available to you, and these are the pianos sold at Nick's Piano Showroom! Most people visiting the Steinway dealer do not realize that only the grand pianos costing $73,300 or more are actually made by Steinway.
YAMAHA & KAWAI: These are the two piano builders of Japan which have excellent long track records. These are also the top two brands in digital pianos. Kawai has the distinction of being the only piano company of Japan to build a Tier 1 piano, and it is the only major piano company still owned by the original family, building pianos that bear their name as a specialist in keyboard instruments. Known for their quality and innovation worldwide, and especially for how their acoustic and digital pianos sound and feel, is why they are featured at Nick's Piano Showroom serving Naples. See the videos below for a preview.
ESTONIA: A top competitor and choice for a European piano at a surprisingly affordable price. Because of this they are known for being the best value among the high end pianos with prices only slightly higher than Japanese made pianos. All materials are of the highest quality and every detail of them has been impressively perfected. They are often pre-sold and dealer allocations are limited, but try to see them if you can at Nick's Piano Showroom. They have been very well received in Naples.
MASON & HAMLIN: Arguably the finest piano being made in the United States today! Lush, singing, and powerful American sound. The Mason & Hamlin pianos made today are truly spectacular and reminiscent of the golden age of American piano manufacturing together with today's technology.
PIANODISC: #1 selling player piano system worldwide and it is a high resolution system. Renders highly nuanced performances, is the easiest to use, can play quieter than any other system, comes with unlimited free music, and is engineered to be future-proof since it adapts to the latest technology.
As a pianist and piano technician, I am able to carefully evaluate today's piano market in order to bring you the greatest benefits. Most of my selection exhibits the European philosophy of tonality with a rounded yet clear, singing, beautiful sound. Along with excellent technical preparation which I personally perform, the result is superior value at every price level. The combination of carefully selected brands along with meticulous preparation makes a noticeable and appreciable difference at Nick's Piano Showroom. I am also able to hand select only the nicest, cleanest used pianos from Naples for you for even greater savings!

Brief Introduction to Kawai Grand Pianos
This video describes in detail how Kawai has been the sole innovator for the past 50 years of the piano action, which is essentially the engine of your piano driving its performance. The Millennium III action with carbon fiber is now used in every Kawai grand piano! It is even noticeable in player pianos for producing superior playback results.
