Mass-Produced Pianos

Grade 3

Filled with a number of recognizable brand names, the mass-produced piano market has always been extremely competitive. Mass producers strive to produce a large number of pianos inexpensively. Thus, the kind of personal attention common to Grade 1 and Grade 2 pianos are too time consuming to make sense in Grade 3.

Due in part to the extremely competitive nature of mass-production, Grade 3 companies represent a wide variety of quality levels. If you’re looking for a good quality - and inexpensive - lessons instrument, a Grade 3 piano might be worth considering – as long as you carefully explore the construction, performance and pricing practices of each Grade 3 brand you evaluate.

Limited Production Pianos

Grade 2

A relatively new development in the piano world, Limited Production Pianos employ a mix of hand-craftsmanship and assembly line mass-production. The result is a new category of pianos – one that incorporates much of the quality and design associated with Handcrafted pianos, but at a price closer to those in Grade 3.
