The real thing behind every purchase is the cost of that thing. While buying the musical instrument, especially the keyboards and pianos, the customer is very careful and keen about the quality of the instrument. Of course you can’t take back home an instrument that has a fault in construction or its function. That is why you need to check it as well before buying it.
The usual idea is that the pianos are expensive. What makes them expensive is the wood that is used, its designing and the keyboard that is installed in it. Especially the branded ones pay a lot of attention in making the pianos.
As far as the average cost of the upright piano is concerned, it ranges somewhere from £2000 to £6000. It can surely go above but below £2000, it is really hard to find a good quality piano. The old or second hand upright pianos for sale might be available though.
Unlike the upright pianos for sale, thedigital pianos for sale are cheaper than the upright pianos. The latter cost around several thousand while the simplest digital keyboard piano is available at an average cost of £150. The highest price of a good digital piano can go up to £500 and so on.
