    Es de lejos, la mejor tienda de pianos de Madrid, las instalaciones son enormes. La variedad es amplia en cuanto a pianos de reestreno. Son distribuidores oficiales de Steinway & Sons, Boston y Essex.
    La atención es de 10, profesionales
    … More a más no poder. Les presenté una propuesta y me recomendaron pianos que se adaptaban a dicha propuesta.
