Music, just like any other art, is one of the core ways through which human beings unwind and sooth themselves after a long tiring day. Research however shows that playing the music, rather than just listening to it is much more therapeutic. However, many musical instruments are expensive to purchase and if not so have several counterfeits meaning that you can either pay more for some crappy piece or end up buying a genuine model at just to realize it is not best suited for the task at hand.
My musical instrument of choice is the piano with my favorite brand being Yamaha. How then do I identify genuine Yamaha piano prices and how do I identify a scum deal?
Consider the model name and hence the technology used in its making
Ideally, the price of a Yamaha piano is bound to the model name hence the technology crammed into it. Common sense has it that something worth a second look will sell at a considerable price. This does not mean that I settle for anything that quotes a ridiculous price.
By assessing the specifications of a piano and the technology used in the creation of different components of the piano, it is possible to make an inference on what possible Yamaha piano prices might be. This however works in cases where I know what was in the previous model hence can make informed inferences depending on how the new model differs from its predecessor.
The functionalities it supports and to what extend
Yamaha piano prices obey the rules of sale just like any other gadget in the market. To determine whether the price quoted for a specific piano is genuine, I have to judge the functionalities the device supports. For instance, some pianos have chips to support automated tune teaching while others have internal storage.
Depending on the unique features, the Yamaha piano has and the storage size, amplification power and response time between keystroke and exact generation of the set key, I make my deductions that then help me determine whether the quoted price is genuine or a fake.
What more the market has to offer and at what price
One question I ask myself before making any purchase is; can I get something better or equal to this at a lesser price? Well, sometimes the answer is not, but at other times, it is a huge yes. Based on what I want to do with the Yamaha keyboard, I make an informed decision and gauge whether the deal is worth or not.
This means that the worthiness of a deal does not necessarily mean that I have to pay the least amount of money for a given piece. Yamaha piano prices vary depending on different aspects of that specific piano and my key to getting a good deal lies in my ability to identify the feature I want or might want in the near future and settle for the cheapest model that can give that to me.
The pianos versatility and its value in the second hand market
Finally, in determining whether Yamaha piano prices are worth a deal, I consider the versatility of the piano. Yamaha is generally known for the creation of hardy pieces that will serve true for a while. However, this differs from one model to another. A worthy bargain is one that will allow me to live with my purchase for ages without deteriorated performance levels.
Finally, I explore the possibility of having to resell the piano incase I no longer need it or I get the urge to upgrade. Though mostly this will happen at a loss, some classic models will always have a soft spot in music lover hearts. When purchasing a piano, the possibility of reselling it whilst incurring the least loss possible is detrimental to determining whether the quoted price is a real bargain or not.
