Are you a "local" company?
Yes!!! Apollo Piano is a Yamaha Dealer - as well as Pearl River and Hailun - but is owned by the husband and wife team of Vincent Chambers and Nerissa Prieto, M.D. We live, play, and work in Chico, CA with our two sons and look forward to helping our neighbors rent, buy, sell or maintain their pianos!
Where are you located?
3150 Highway 32, Unit A in Chico, CA 95973.
When are you open?
We are open Wednesday - Friday from 11am-6pm, Saturday and Sunday from 11am-5pm, and by appointment at your convenience.
Do you sell used pianos?
YES!!! We sell both new and used pianos by Yamaha, Kawai, Steinway, Kimbal, Baldwin, and many others, and have a terrific rental program for both new (or nearly new) and used pianos. You can even rent a brand new piano from us for 12 months, and exchange it to buy a brand new one! How crazy is that?
Do you tune pianos?
Of course!!! Owner Vincent Chambers grew up in a family Piano Tuning School business (see his bio here) and still loves to work on pianos. He tunes, repairs and regulates pianos for customers and for the store. He tunes for the Red Bluff State Theater, Cascade Theater, Bethel Music Recording Studio, and maintains many other high-profile instruments. In addition we have several fine tuners who can service your piano from Yuba City to Eureka, Sacramento, and service as far south as San Luis Obispo.
Do you sell tools and parts?
Not so much, but we can order something for you or point you in the right direction. We do however sell caster cups, collies, covers, benches, lamps, and other accessories for you piano.
My piano tuner says I need to have my piano rebuilt. Who do you recommend?
We'd be lying of we recommended anyone other than ourselves, but sometimes it's necessary to engage another rebuilder for a variety of reasons. Check out our work in the service section; you'll be pleasantly surprised.
