Piano Serial Numbers

How old is my piano? Look up the age and serial number of your piano here. We have provided a list for Kawai, Yamaha & Schimmel Pianos.

Where do I find the serial number for my piano?

For upright pianos, the serial number is located in one of two places: (1) the top right side of the iron plate (near the tuning pins) or (2) at the top centre of the plate between the bass and treble sections. You can normally find it easily by lifting the piano lid. 

For grand pianos, the serial number is found on the iron plate under the music desk in the centre or on the right side of the piano (near the tuning pins).
