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 - 2004. Please see our new FAQ page with some great questions that we often get asked repeatedly!
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.
*** STORE HOURS** Franklin, KY store hours are by appointment only. The store is located on the Historic Square in Franklin, KY. Typically you will find pianos from 750.00 which does include ground floor delivery up to a 50 mile radius with 3-5 entryway steps.
NASHVILLE PIANO RESCUE offers free pickup of unwanted pianos under 45 inches tall if an upright or 3 legged grand piano (large uprights over 47 inches tall have a disposal fee of 300.00 , Square Grand Piano disposal fees are 500.00). Please see Piano Pick-ups for what we will accept and what we won't. We do not pick up pianos left outdoors prior to pick ups, also the piano must be from a smoke free home. We do not work in high winds or on rainy days. We do not do last minute pick ups. We would also appreciate that you exhaust all other possibilities for getting rid of your unwanted piano PRIOR to contacting us as although this is a free service we do a tremendous amount of planning in advance and showing up to find your piano gone elsewhere can be an issue.
