Wonder what it would be like to buy from Classic Pianos?

Learn from the experience of our many satisfied customers:

Joy and Delight

“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.”

Bob Cochran
Portland, Oregon

Unparalleled

“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.”

Mark Westcott
International Concert Pianist and Teacher
Portland, Oregon

Patient

“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 …”

Wonderfully Supportive

“The staff at Classic Pianos are incredibly knowledgeable and were able to recommend pianos appropriate for our use at Mountainside HS – both in terms of their use and our budget! They are also wonderfully supportive of the wider music education community and have provided great service and value with the piano rentals provided to Solo & Ensemble events around the state. For outstanding service, exceptional knowledge, and just wonderful people, you can’t do better than Classic Pianos!”

Magical Musical Connection

“It is an absolute joy to walk into the lobby of Artists Rep and, as audiences are leaving a show, one sits down and plays the piano for a while. Last week a huge group of high school students gathered round while one of them played.

Classic Pianos has gifted us with that type of magical music connection, and I am forever grateful!”

Susannah Mars
Music Events Specialist & Resident Artists

Passionate

“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.”

We received outstanding service and appreciate that we were presented with many options, but not pushed in any direction. The piano is for my teenage son and they did an outstanding job speaking with him respectfully, answering his questions, and serving as knowledgeable guides rather than pushy sales reps. He loves his piano and it is a perfect fit for him, for our family, and for our home.read more

I went to their performance space, which is next-door to the piano store. It's designed like a community center, but it has a recital/recording room, and the acoustics and lighting and seating in there are all just superb! Outstanding set by "Stephanie Strange and the Familiars" by the way...read more

I just purchased the most beautiful piano from Classical Pianos located at 3003 SE Milwaukie Ave, Portland, OR 97202. First, they really know pianos and gave me a thorough tour of all their pianos within my interest. Second, they give great piano play value for their prices. In less than 4 days, my piano was delivered into my home with care, on time, with great customer service. The piano came today- pristine, polished, perfectly tuned, and ready to be played. I couldn't be happier with the attention I received when I entered Classical Pianos, how the store presented their vast selection, the amount I paid, what I actually received, and how I received it. I think everything went so well because all their services from technicians, sales, clerks, tuners, schedulers, delivery, etc, are in-house and under great management. This is why I love successful pride of ownership in a business and wanted to tell you about it. Ask for Fred to show you the pianos.read more

I highly recommend Classic Pianos! Recently we bought a piano from Classic Pianos with the help of Fred. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and sensitive to our budget. We are very happy with the piano we ended up purchasing, and feel grateful for the ongoing relationship we have with Classic Pianos. I recommend them to anyone who mentions wanting a piano. They really have something for everyone!read more

Fred Riley gave me the best experience buying a piano I have ever had. 100% would recommend asking for Fred right away. He made sure I never felt pressured or confused offering the friendliest service and complete honesty. Not to mention the more than fair prices. They can definitely count on me coming back.read more

A great place if you want a piano. The cost of pianos may seem steep, but these are too quality. They also sell reasonably priced used pianos. The cost of delivery is very reasonable in the Portland area. The staff is friendly and helpful. If you are in the market for a piano, this place has whatever you could want: electric, baby grand, full grand, upright, professional or beginner. I did not use the restoration services, but the final products are beautiful!read more

This store is amazing. We got a used piano during a holiday sale for a very good price. They let us into the show room and let us sit and play the different pianos at our own leisure. Staff was very professional and knowledgeable. We found the perfect piano for us and didn't feel pressured into buying. Good quality pianos here.read more

Awesome store! We came in search of a piano bench. The fella that helped us was kind and patient and once I settled on a bench, he put it together for me. As we walked by some of the gorgeous, wood in-lay pianos he stopped to explain who did such beautiful work and what the piano looked like before. Classic Pianos has every range of piano, new or used. Definitely recommend this business.read more

A large selection of mid-level to high level pianos. A little bit of a pain to get checked in and escorted back to the piano showroom, but the sales staff was extremely knowledgeable. I am a long time pianist and appreciated their expertise and wide selection.read more

Excellent Service

“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!”

“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.”

Dedicated

“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.”

We Felt Like Part of Their Team

“We partnered with Classic Pianos to purchase a new Yamaha C7X for our College Theatre as well as new upright pianos in all of the practice rooms at Mt. Hood Community College. The staff at Classic Pianos made us feel like part of their team as they evaluated our needs and advised us on which pianos would best fit each space on campus. They are the type of people that you want to partner with not just for one project, but for life!”
