Second Hand Pianos at Forsyths Music Shop, Manchester

Our second hand pianos are carefully selected and prepared to the highest standards. We are particular about the pianos we buy in and our technicians thoroughly assess and service each and every instrument in our on-site workshop to ensure they offer the best possible musical value.

The Cheapest Piano Isn't Always the Best Value

Rather than offering the very cheapest models, we prefer to sell you a piano that we have confidence in. This gives you the best value for money as many "bargain" pianos do not work properly and you will quickly end up changing the instrument or putting yourself off playing altogether! A well chosen piano may become a valued companion for life. We do also have a constantly changing stock of part-exchange clearance pianos if you are looking for something affordable to get you going.  We can't keep our website up to date with all the new instruments to please do call to discuss on 0161 834 3281 ext 604

What kind of Second Hand Pianos does Forsyth Stock?

We always have a selection of second hand Yamaha pianos, some are imported from the far east after they are no longer wanted or we have young instruments we have part exchanged that often we sold ourselves originally.  We often have a strong range of pre-owned British pianos in stock and particularly favour pianos by Kemble, Knight and Danemann for their musical qualities. Quality German pianos by brands such as Schimmel, Steinway, Bluthner, and Bechstein also feature frequently but tend to sell very quickly due to their relative rarity on the second hand market. Our 160+ years as a piano specialist means that very often we sold these instruments originally and we have experience of dealing with a vast range of makes and models.

Finding the Right Piano for You

If you are looking for a particular make or model of piano that you don't see here, please let us know it is possible we haven't had a chance to list it yet or otherwise we will be happy to keep an eye open for you. Conversely, should you have a piano that you wish to sell do not hesitate to contact us by phone or email.
