Any Technics digital pianos & ensembles for sale or to give away?

Occasionally someone asks if I have a piano for sale.  If my own one is suitable they might buy it.  Then I’m without a piano so I keep a look out for something else.  Life is not the same without a piano to play!  I usually end up getting a Technics because I like the sound of them and I particularly like the action (how the keys feel to play) of the later models.

Incidentally, I do need any non-working Technics pianos or keyboards for parts please.  Don’t throw it away – I might be able to repair it for you.

Although I’m always repairing Technics pianos and circuit boards, this doesn’t mean that there are working pianos lurking about everywhere.  Sometimes someone brings the top half of their piano here but I can’t play it until I’ve repaired it.  It would be no fun anyway because it’s in an awkward position on the workbench and it doesn’t have its pedals.  You can’t play a piano without a damper pedal unless you’re playing boogie or a style which doesn’t need the pedal.  So I need a piano of my own which I can just sit down at and play without having to reassemble one of my test pianos.

I’ve just bought a Technics digital ensemble SX-PR703M but it will need a lot of work doing to the main board and will almost certainly need a major refurbishment of the amplifier boards before I can play it.  I still have to finish a few repairs of circuit boards for customers before I can start on my own piano.  I’m a repairer, not a dealer, so I always give repairs priority.  I know what will happen – I’ll get it all done and then someone will want to buy it!

I’m very fussy about the piano I play so if or when it gets sold, you can be certain that everything on it will have been tested and it will be in full working order – and if not, for any reason, I would say so.

It would be almost certainly still be in pretty good condition having only had home use – mine and the any previous owners.

I do have my mum’s old acoustic piano to play but this would wake up the household at the stupid times I feel like playing!  I don’t sit down to play very often so when I do, it could be several hours before I stop!

At the moment I don’t have a piano I can play in the middle of the night so I also don’t have a piano which I could sell to anyone.

If you are looking for a good used piano, do ask as I might have something suitable.  The price would be what it cost me plus what it would have cost to do the repairs.  This is a much safer bet than buying through ebay or gumtree because you know that the piano has been repaired properly by me.  Not blowing my own trumpet but it often seems that I’m the only person in the world who repairs Technics and who does the job properly!  Nearly all the work done by other repairers that I’ve seen is of a very low standard which is a pretty tragic state of affairs.
