Update June 13, 2013  I featured the Hollywood Piano Company several times when I was reporting Best Buys and consumer news for KCAL9 and the reason was obvious -- Hollywood Piano Company always had the best prices, the best advice, and a staff of experts that would help you with every step, beat, note and chord.  But on my latest visit to the Hollywood Piano Company it was easy to see how the piano business had changed.  Now, consumers were getting more piano for their dollars and the industry has gone high tech.  There are now pianos that you can control with your iPod or cell phone to play music and to play CD's and you can control the choice of song and the volume and you can separate vocal tracks from instrumentals.

And now, Hollywood Piano Company has a new, larger location in Burbank at 323 South Front Street with new areas for recitals, concerts and classrooms for personal and group instructions.

Hollywood Piano Company not only discounts new, first quality piano by all of the major piano makers, but they also sell rental returns, and they have consignment sales, and there are resales and even bank repossessions on high end pianos.  Hollywood Piano Company is known as "the trusted home of the world's finest values" and you will love the prices, the selection and the services they offer.

There are two locations.  One is in Pasadena.

2084 East Foothill Blvd.
Pasadena, CA 91107
(626) 229-0999

And the new one in Burbank:

323 South Front Street
Burbank, California 91502

And you can go to for information.  Our Best Buys TV Show report about the new Burbank location is below.

Update June 13, 2013  The website specializes in bass strings and accessories for the electric bass guitar and now the company has expanded and offer guitar strings and drum equipment.  There are different websites for the guitar and drum equipment.  This discounter gets its inventory direct from manufacturers and wholesalers so you are getting the best prices.  Their website is easy to use and offers fast shipping.  Some of the major brands carred include DR Handmade Strings, Fodera Handmade Strings, Ken Smith, D'Addario and Ernie Ball and more.   The website also features details of the products, various product information, easy to find string sizes and of course competitive prices.  There is also a bonus reward system to keep you coming back to this strings discounter.  These high quality strings are ideal for Fender, Ken Smith and Squire, Gibson, Ibanez, Music Man and other quality bass guitars.  This discounter also features strings for acoustic guitars and acoustic upright bass.
