Default Technics

Is it worthwhile to buy a second-hand high-end Technics piano ??
I had one 10 years ago, and thought it was great.
How does Yamaha compare to these old Technics instruments ????

Default Second Hand Technics Piano

Although Technics pianos were right up there with Yamaha about 5-6 years ago, I don't recommend buying a second hand one today for the following reasons:

1) Any digital piano over 3 years could be a risky purchase. This is because repairs can be very costly, and spare parts (especially for a Techinics) might be difficult to get hold of.

2) Technics no longer make digital pianos. So there is no back up service from the manufacturer

3) You can get a very good quality, brand new digital piano today for between 600 - 900. Also with a 3 year guarantee, or more. This would be a better investment for the long term.

Back then, Technics create great digital pianos. I remember my family had one when I was yet in high school and it sounded great. But like what was mentioned, second-hand digital pianos isn't to be trusted when you are looking to purchase one. Go for brand new, it's worth the money.
