Piano, Organ, and Keyboard/piano value


Hello! One of my friends has put me in charge of selling his daughters piano however he cant give me much info about it so I have no good idea how much its worth.

It is a Pramberger JP-131 52″ Professional Studio I think (there is an inscription inside saying JP-52.I think the color is Walnut High Polish
There is also a barcode with the number  P130016131U0203050062. Also another number under the Pramberger logo Y02538449. There is an inscription on it saying Made by Young Chang under license from Joseph J Pramberger.

Can you please help me valuing this piano? And also what is the best place to list this for sale? Piano is located in NYC

Hi Madalina:

I looks like this piano was made in 2002.

I think a good starting place would be around 5,500.00 if it is in perfect condition.

I would post this piano and its picture in the local music schools first!

NYC is a fierce place to sell anything...the competition in a big city is overwhelming at times.

I hope that helps!
