Hand made German Pianos are very expensive and require an expert to tell the difference today as to where the piano was/is made, call anytime for detailed information on  real German made - versus Knock offs from China- (Pianos that could be very similar in appearance. to the real German made piano)

We have sold pianos throughout the San Francisco Bay area for almost 100 Years and our reputation is well regarded in the piano industry.  Over the many years Carnes have had stores in San Francisco, Daly City, San Mateo, Belmont, Menlo Park, Palo Alto, Hayward, Fremont and San Leandro.  Now that we are in the heart of Santa Clara County we feel this is our flagship store.   We Represent Kawai, Shigeru, Walter, Kingsburg, and many of the most popular brands.  Pre owned Steinway, Yamaha, Schimmel, Seiler, and many others are always available at low low prices. 


Another alert is in regards to Used Yamaha / Kawai pianos that are coming to the USA.  Many times these pianos are 30 to 50 years old and just polished up for a fast sale.  There are many garage type sellers, selling throughout the Bay Area. Call us and we will answer all your questions on the dubious nature of these pianos and those people that distribute them.
A legitimate dealer is licensed and pays taxes, offers guarantees, be guarded, be smart, do your home work.   New pianos must meet Ca/gov. formaldehyde compliant 93120 standards to be sold in the State, these old gray market yamaha and kawai pianos fail to meet these new standards.
Trade in accepted towards a Shigeru Grand
C Bechstein's are the German Made Bechsteins. The 'C' is Critical.
