Bellarmine Fundraiser Piano Sale
Bellarmine College Piano SaleGist Piano Center and several of its business partners are once again joining forces to host a benefit piano sale for the Bellarmine Univeristy Music Department.

If you have been thinking about purchasing a new - or gently used - instrument for your home, you won't want to miss this rare opportunity. 

Saturday, June 4, Gist will open its doors to the public for a "first-come, first-served" selling event.  Doors will open at 10am and close at 5pm (or until the allocated pianos have all been selected - whichever comes first).

College loaner pianos, closeout models, factory overstock units, "scratch and dent" specials and rental return instruments from such major brands as Boston, Essex, Yamaha, Kawai, Knabe, Knabe, Roland and more will be offered at a fraction of their value for this one-day-only sale.

Priority delivery and special financing offers will be made available to qualified customers at the sale.  No dealers please.

Finally, as a "thank you" for being a loyal Piano Monthly reader, we'd like to offer you two ways to take better advantage of this incredible sale.
