Buy a Piano

Piano technicians above often have reconditioned pianos for sale.

Starbird Music & Piano Gallery of Portland is the best store in Maine if you are in the market for a new piano. They also offer used and rent-to-own pianos.

Used pianos are a hot commodity in Midcoast Maine. Check classifieds, Facebook Marketplace and “yardsale” groups, Uncle Henry’s, Craigslist, etc.
