A piano for everyone at Sly’s
Warren Sly has a long family association with the music industry. His grandfather started Sly’s Pianos back in the early 1900s with his father taking over the business later.
Warren has been involved in the specialist piano business since boyhood and has acquired a huge amount of experience in dealing with some of the world’s best piano manufacturers.
While there have been many technological changes in other musical instruments, no one has been able to improve on the high tonal quality of the traditional piano and especially the greater expression range from the modern grand piano. Sly’s Pianos has pianos for all types of pianists and environments. There is a good selection of modestly priced pianos for students from $5900, while for the more advanced student and teacher pianos are more likely to start around $9000.
“We can also offer people a rental programme while they are assessing the ability of their children. And Sly’s Pianos are happy to credit you with up to 12 months rental against the eventual purchase. We have finance packages available and sell and deliver pianos all over New Zealand.
“Apart from the handmade Fazioli (Italy) piano which is a two-year process to make and is regarded by many as the very best, we also import German, French and Austrian pianos, which come in all shapes and sizes in a choice of white, traditional black, rosewood and walnut.
“The professional range of pianos runs from $9000 to $27,000 for uprights to $35,000 to $50,000 for grand pianos, while performance grand pianos can cost from $70,000 to $250,000.
“As part of our ongoing customer service, we offer a full tuning service to all our customers and are also able to offer a repair service to anyone with a piano.”
