The numbers in black and white


When you’ve been in the business of pairing pianos with people for as long as we have you can accrue some pretty impressive numbers if you’re doing it right.



Years in business

We’ve been around so long, our first store was built by hand (just like the fine pianos we import).




We’ve been family owned and operated – by three generations of the same family – since 1914.



Hours of care and attention

Each piano we sell receives 10 hours+ of tuning and voicing prior to finding them a home.

April 2019

I cannot speak highly enough of Warren Sly and Sly's Pianos. He is a consummate gentleman, who not only provides a professional service second to none, but has generously supported Massey High School since our purchase. It was a great joy to deal with Warren and to have established our ongoing friendship with him.
