Dear, ofcourse buying new has been what pianodealers say the last 60 years since it means money for them. But Henri Herz was a very good builder of pianos and for sure a new one today that has the same quality costs more then a restoration of your piano. And you realy donīt want to go buying an upright Chinese for 2000-3000 dollar. After 1 year it sound metalish. The challenge ofcourse is finding a good restorer. but once well restored you will have many (30 years or more) years of pleasure from a beautiful ca. 1900 piano. Sincerely yours, Wim
