Who we are

NASHVILLE PIANO RESCUE ™ is a different type of music store, we basically save good decent used pianos from early demise whether it be from storage or from people who will never play them. We have over 90 years of experience , an enormous logistical networking base and go out to find these pianos in other areas, mainly in the north, midwest  and western states, we try to avoid instruments from the high humidity southern states. We prefer to deal with Vintage American Made Pianos 1880 - 2003.

The idea is to get affordable pianos into the hands of area musicians without breaking the bank. Our customers are working class people who have been told in the past that they should settle for less because of budget or enter into a finance agreement which will cause a financial hardship on a family. Since we do not sell or want to sell new pianos we cannot be influenced by anyone to keep prices high.  Pricing is based on average median income of what our target customer can afford.  The days of hearing you should settle for a 3 octave battery powered  keyboard are over.

All Piano Sales made from the Franklin Kentucky  Location Include the Following :  Dealer Confidence Warranty on all Inventory Regardless of Age which covers ALL parts and labor.  First in home Tuning,  Local Ground Floor Professional Delivery Which also includes Davidson and Williamson County in TN, 

*** What is New***

Our New Franklin Kentucky Store on the Historic Square opens Saturday December 20th at 10 am.  Shoppers can enjoy the restored 1920s building , lower sales tax. No sales tax at all on food if coming up on a shopping day trip. Only 40 minutes north of Nashville.  Address is 122 West Kentucky Avenue.  See the Kentucky store tab on top of the homepage for updated inventory.  Each day we will add 7 + Pianos to the current list.

*** Piano Pick-ups ***  This is an addition to the info below.  We will pick up pianos 47 inches and below at no cost providing there are no stairs.  3 to 5 entry steps only.  Anything over 47 inches tall requires a 300.00 disposal fee.  This will cover labor, insurance and storage since our warehouse is currently busting at the seams with these large uprights we need to charge to pick them up.... Thank you.

PIANO TUNING:   We offer no nonsense professional piano tuning. The tuner will come out and tune your piano simple as that.  There wont be any up-selling going on, ( telling you you need 100's of dollars of work to do the job).  He may make a recommendation if needed but only if it really is.  

PRICING :   Low Overhead is Key to providing Value in Todays Market.  We like to say that our Delivery is on a  Courtesy Basis and not just a Free Service.  Mainly due to the fact that it is not easy, we don't want to see inexperienced people moving our pianos.  Prices are essentially based on our investment, where it came from, if it was shipped from overseas, Canada, off a mountain top etc.  What was directly involved, labor, repair and logistics wise to getting it here.  We do not base prices on Speculation of what everyone else is doing. 

We Offer a 100% trade up guarantee with no time limit,  if you buy a piano from us we will give you whatever you paid for it towards  an upgrade to a more expensive Upright or Grand.

WARRANTY:  We place a full Warranty on everything that comes through our door. Nothing is more irritating today than to pay a lot of money for something only to have it fail. I go through this constantly with machine tool parts that are seemingly all made overseas.  If we work on the Pianos that come through here I will warranty it, regardless of age. We want to make sure that you aren't buying a mystery and you will have peace of mind.  This is a real warranty, we don't put some humidity related spin on it. If it breaks I will personally come to your house and fix the issue at no cost to you. 

STAGE SHELLS :  See the piano shell tab that was added 4-1-12  for the lineup of Shells

DELIVERY:  For now all deliveries are courtesy as in no extra charge, how long this lasts will depend on the skyrocketing fuel costs and is ground floor only ( 2 - 5 ) entry steps, we can go around the back of the house on masonite if there is less steps there.  Any second floor deliveries will require you to hire additional labor to get it up there.
