About Testimonials

Just a brief note to try to put into words the joy and delight I experienced yesterday after the exceptional tour through Classic Pianos… and the sincere and genuine enthusiasm and hospitality you evidenced… I walked by the store and got the urge to come in, and the magic began the moment I stepped inside and experienced the warmth of its environment.

I have known Maurice Unis, and some of his associates, for over twenty-five years. His understanding of technical rebuilding and piano restoration is, in a word, ‘unparalleled.’ The rebuilding of vintage Steinways at Classic Pianos is the finest of any store I’ve ever seen.

Over many years, we have purchased seven pianos from Fred and Classic Pianos. Fred, and everyone at Classic, are forthright and honest. With them, it is not only about closing a sale; it is about establishing a long-term, personal relationship, ensuring the client finds the right piano, and then providing world-class follow-up and support to help maintain the instrument for a lifetime. The pianos we have purchased range from entry-level used upright pianos, to new concert grand pianos. It is impressive that the top-notch service provided by Fred and Classic Pianos is the same, regardless of the piano's financial value. Fred and Classic understand that a less-expensive instrument will have great intrinsic value to its owner, and that intrinsic value deserves the best, personalized support. No matter the budget, your musical experience, or taste in instruments, Fred and Classic will help you find a piano that is perfect for you. Even if you are not yet seriously in the market, give Fred a call. He will help you educate yourself as you decide what you want. Then make arrangements to visit. We think spending part of the day with Fred at Classic Pianos is better than visiting Disneyland!

Amazing! Incredible! After 20 years of not playing I met Rick at the store and his tour was so inspiring I decided that I wanted a new piano on the spot. Such excellent service and a great financing deal. No regrets! Thank you Classic Pianos!

As an adult fulfilling a lifelong desire to play the piano, I was incredibly inspired by the best selling book, ‘The Piano Shop on the Left Bank.’ The book opened a whole new world to me. The first time I walked into Classic Pianos and found myself amidst the beautifully restored vintage pianos, I felt as if I might be in Paris and that I had discovered a similarly passionate world of piano right here in Portland.

What a fantastic piano store. My husband and I were interested in purchasing a piano and the courtesy that we experienced here by far surpassed others. We took some time making our selection over several months, telling them our budget and found the staff here were very knowledgeable, helpful and not pressuring or arrogant as we experienced at another place. Classic pianos was so pleasant in working with our budget, needs and preferences, another store scoffed at our budget stating "we only sell Steinways."

Let it be known when we're ready to upgrade to a Steinway or better we will be purchasing from Classic pianos!

Classic Pianos is officially my go to place for all things piano related! They truly do have a passion for pianos, and it comes through in every interaction they have with you! I worked specifically with Taylor and he was amazing! He was incredibly knowledgeable and so helpful. He played a few tunes to show me the difference between products and gave me some time by myself to try them out on my own.

They also offer a great financing program if you're on a budget, and they even allow you to place your piano on hold for the day to think it over or to shop around some more. I did this, but honestly after going to a few other shops in Portland, it was clear that none of them held a candle to Classic Pianos! I went back before the day was over, and am now the proud owner of my beautiful Yamaha! I would absolutely recommend this place above any others in Portland!

I needed a reliable in-tune piano on a shoestring budget. Rick Zachery guided me to a gently used Yamaha Clavinova that fit the bill. The staff are courteous, knowledgeable and professional. Their policy allows you to trade-in a purchased instrument within two years at full value toward an upgrade--which tells you that they are sincerely dedicated to providing quality pianos for any household. It's worth a visit just to look at the beautiful array of instruments they have in their showrooms. I would do business with Classic Pianos again.

Purchased a piano about 2 weeks ago. Peggy was just AMAZING! I told her my budget and was expecting to purchase a used piano but she worked with me and my budget and I was able to take a brand new piano home!! I couldn't be happier!

Very happy with my purchase and would recommend this place to anyone who is looking to purchase a piano.

I had a terrific piano buying experience at Classic Pianos. Brian was patient and never pushy as I visited multiple times over the course of a few weeks. He listened to my (somewhat evolving) wish list and worked hard to find the perfect instrument for me...
