What do Jamie Foxx, Ray Charles, Alicia Keys, Tennessee Williams, Lauren Hill, Itzhak Perlman, Francis Ford Coppola, and Jackie Gleason have in common? They all bought pianos at Victor Pianos, that's what. The owner, Victor Tibaledo, is sitting behind the desk there today — right now, if it's Monday through Saturday from 9 to 5, or Sunday 12:30 to 5 — just as he was 50 years ago, when he started the business in a single building filled with pianos. Now there are five buildings — one for grand pianos, one for uprights, one for organs, one for keyboards, and one for the office, where Victor holds court and occasionally sells sheet music. He has plenty of everything at whatever price (within reason) you feel like paying. ("I just sold a piano to a truck driver," Victor's daughter Lisa told us when we visited.) Pianos range from $4,000 to $50,000, organs go for about $1,300 and up, and keyboards start at $500.

I recently purchased a piano from Victor's. It was a good deal and a very nice piano, but the disc player wasn't working. I contacted them, and was given a tech's number. After he assesssed the repairs, I contacted Victor's and was told to make the repairs, pay the invoice, submit it to them, and I would be reimbursed. I did that, and for months was told I would be receiving a check. After four months, I was told I had gotten a good deal on the piano and should be happy with that, and that I now would not be reimbursed. This is deceitful, dishonest business practices. Although they have nice pianos, their methods of doing business are far less than honorable. Buyer Beware!Jimmy Carillo
