A pi­ano for ev­ery­one at Sly’s

Central Leader - - News -

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.”
