While not new news that the musical instrument market, and market for associated equipment, has been robust during the pandemic, here is an interesting article about it:

There are so many musicians that are suddenly even more broke than normal due to venue shutdowns that there is a ton of gear on the market for desperate prices. It feels somewhat Ghoulish though, preying on the misfortune of others.

It's a great time for selling instruments. Secondhand prices are higher than they were in early 2020.

Not sure where the fire sales on gear are. Everything I've heard and read is that alot of it is in short supply. Perhaps PA's and guitar or keyboard amps for performance venues are not in high demand right now.

For the past year, supply of new hybrid digital pianos has been up and down. Some supply has trickled in from time to time. PianoWorld maintains a new pricing database linked below.

During this period, the used market for hybrid pianos has been quite volatile. The used market evaporated during autumn 2020. This week, PianoWorld has identified 30 used hybrids in the US market.

My experience is with Craigslist in Austin in general, and for the used Eurorack synth market in the US. I can totally see it not applying to pianos though.

I went to test some Kawai DP-s at the distributor in Sofia last week. There are usually at least 10 digital pianos on the floor. There were none frown He said people have been buying digital pianos like mad, so he can't even keep floor models for demos. OTOH, there was one upright piano, the cheapest Kawai K15E. It was absolutely mind blowing piano considering the price of about €3000 😲 I would wholeheartedly recommend this piano to anybody that's considering a high-level digital piano but is OK with an acoustic (noise and maintenance) - it's just so much better than a typical digital.

Six months ago, my dealer told me he was selling everything he had. See the other thread on how a dealer closed due to supply issues.

There is a decline in the production and supply of the musical instruments because of the disruption in the supply chain. Due to this pandemic, here is a non-availability of products on various online and offline channels due to lockdown. I've been recently looking for a bass amp combo and it was really tough to find the one I wanted available.
