Fairness of fees. Buying a piano is a significant investment, so it's best to get high quality with just the right pricing.

  • Broad catalog
  • Rental service is well-done
  • Website is easy to use 
  • Has a convenient location


  • Info about stocks on the website isn’t reliable
  • Has complaints for rude service

Derringers Music has one of the broadest catalogs we’ve seen. Almost every major brand of grand pianos, synthesizers, and stage pianos is available here.

One of its strengths is its convenient online platform. Browsing through its products is a breeze, as its menu can be sorted according to price and brand.

We tested its rental service and found it to be excellent. Its units are of high quality both in design and sound.

The staff provided detailed guidelines for the rented pianos which shows their experience and knowledge. We also had no complaints about the speed of its delivery.

Furthermore, the store has a convenient location in Forestville. The interior is very welcoming, and there’s music to improve its ambiance. 

If there’s anything it can improve on, one is that the products on its website marked as “stocked” should also be available in the store. It has had cases of posting products as available on its website but these were not purchasable in the store. 

Another downside is that the store has received complaints from some clients for rude customer service. While we personally didn’t experience it, this should still be noted.

  • Broad catalog 
  • Great-quality secondhand pianos
  • Well-designed shop
  • Good customer communication


  • High fees
  • Sometimes charges higher than what’s posted

Winston Music is another music shop with a broad catalog of pianos and piano accessories. They’re Adelaideans’ go-to shop for all things musical.

The shop is especially great if you’ll buy secondhand pianos, as theirs have high quality. The brands they offer for this are plenty, and their warranty terms aren’t bad either.

Their shop is one of the largest we’ve seen. Their piano showroom is a particular highlight because of its elegant lighting and large space. 

I had a great time talking with Sam, one of their staff members, because he helpfully guided me through their offerings. He wasn’t pushy either.

Furthermore, we’ve heard great things about how they handle refunds and warranty claims. They respond fast, and they make sure that clients receive fair treatment.

However, we think that they can do better with their fees. They charge high compared to other piano stores in Adelaide, especially for their piano sheets. 

Another thing they can improve on is in following the prices they post on their website. Some clients experienced having to pay more in the store compared to what was posted online.

  • Great for repair and tuning of vintage pianos
  • Affordable secondhand pianos
  • Long warranty offered
  • Great customer communication


  • Doesn’t sell synths and stage pianos
  • Repair and tuning services are usually fully booked 

Leaver & Son is a great choice for those needing tuning and repair for vintage pianos. They specialize in brands like Yamaha and Alex Steinbach. 

They’re especially great if you want secondhand pianos, as they provide warranties for as long as 15 years. It’s a great sign of their expertise and trust in the quality of their work. 

Their catalog has many exquisite choices. Their units are made more beautiful by the craftsmanship they apply to restore the pianos’ original material.

We also appreciate how they charge no delivery fees for the piano. Having no delivery fees on top of their already-reasonable rates makes them excellent for those on a budget.

We appreciate that when we got in touch with them, they explained the products well, including their materials, sound quality, and more. They went beyond simple sales talk by teaching us how the instruments should be maintained to prolong their lifespan.

We just wish that they also sold synths and stage pianos too. They only sell upright and grand pianos. 

It would also be better if they could provide more schedules for tuning and repair appointments. They’re often fully booked weeks in advance.

  • Affordable rates
  • Great variety of products
  • Good piano removal and moving services
  • Website design is straightforward


  • Store is small
  • Takes some time to respond to emails

Pianomax has some of the most affordable prices for music products we’ve seen. From accessories to grand pianos, their prices suit the average buyer

They also have many variations of pianos, such as preloved, digital, hybrid, stage, intelligent player, etc. We found it easy to sort through their extensive catalog because their staff in-store were very helpful and knowledgeable.

If you’re looking for something more expensive, they’re a great choice, as they’re the exclusive seller of Premium Kawai pianos. It’s a deluxe brand from Japan known for its pure tones and intelligently-made digital parts. 

Another great thing about the shop is their piano removal and moving services. They coordinate well with clients, and their fees are affordable. 

Furthermore, we found their website’s design to be straightforward. It has a simple design that allows you to order within just 5 minutes. 

If there’s a downside to Pianomax, one is that the shop is small. Most of what they feature are the Kawai pianos, which start at a price of $80,000 (not exactly the most encouraging first price to see). 

Another minor downside is that they took some time to respond to some of the emails we sent their way.

  • Has been in the business for more than 40 years
  • Reasonable rates
  • Great piano tuning and refurbishment services
  • Responsive to calls 


  • Doesn’t display rates on their website
  • Has no physical store

Brighton Pianos has been in the business for more than 40 years. Their expertise can be seen in the fact that they’ve worked with many renowned musicians, such as James Morrison, Dizzy Gillespie, Asher Fisch, Vince Jones, and more.

The company was awarded Hallett Cove Business Award in 2017 for their customer service. It’s well-deserved given how well they answered our inquiries about their products.

Most of their offerings are high-end pianos that are restored with great attention to detail. Their rates are reasonable, too, making them great for beginners.

They’re also great for event piano rentals. Their representatives were highly responsive to calls and were able to follow our scheduled time.

Moreover, they provide excellent refurbishing and tuning services. Based on what we’ve seen, they have great attention to detail, as seen with their finishing, string work, and more.

We’re just not fond of the fact that they don’t display their rates on their website. You’ll have to contact them for their prices. 

Another thing we don’t like is that they don’t have a physical store for their service. It limits your interactions with them to phone calls and their website.
