The Acoustic Piano Database is a listing of virtually every brand, model, style, and finish of new piano distributed nationwide in the United States and, for the most part, Canada — more than 3,000 of them. It's the same listing contained in both the online and print editions of Acoustic & Digital Piano Buyer. But whereas the book is updated only twice a year, the database is updated continuously. You can search and sort the database on brand name, price range, size, furniture style, finish, and more. So if you're looking for a piano to fit a certain budget, size, or furniture style, you can both narrow your search and expand your knowledge of available options quickly and easily. You can also "dial in" a discount to estimate a "street price."

On the search page, as a convenience, we offer three choices regarding the purchase of an electronic player-piano add-on (retrofit) system installed in the piano: No Player-Piano System; Player-Piano System with Playback and Accompaniment; and Player-Piano System with Playback, Accompaniment, and Record. These systems vary widely in price depending on the particular system and options purchased, how the dealer acquired and installed the system, and other considerations, which are detailed in the article "Buying an Electronic Player-Piano System" in Acoustic & Digital Piano Buyer. Here, however, for simplicity, we add $7,500 for a system with playback and accompaniment, and $9,300 for a system with playback, accompaniment, and record. These represent approximate "MSRP" or "Suggested Maximum Prices" for basic PianoDisc or QRS systems as frequently configured by dealers. These prices are subject to discount in the same manner, and to about the same extent, as the piano prices. System configurations and prices do vary, however, so all prices should just be considered convenient estimates.
Please note that Yamaha Disklavier pianos will not appear on the results page when the "No Player-Piano System" option is chosen. When one of the other two options is chosen, Disklaviers will appear (if they match the other search criteria), but the $7,500 or $9,300 will not be added to the price because these instruments' prices as listed already include the player-piano system.
Using your browser's "bookmarking" or "favorites" feature to bookmark the results page, you can save the criteria you used for searching. Then, when you call up the bookmarked page, the results will appear. If the database has been updated since you originally bookmarked the page, the new data will be used in place of the old.
To save your actual results (not just the criteria), use your browser's "Save As" function to save the results page as a web page. To print your results, use your browser's "Print" function.
Although Acoustic & Digital Piano Buyer is updated twice a year, this database is updated whenever new information comes to our attention or errors are reported. Therefore, the information in this database may differ slightly from that in the publication, and should be considered the more accurate of the two.
