Please read other reviews about this store, all bad reviews are correct, that was my own experience. I really should have read about the owner before, and not even bother visiting the store. The owner is rude, he will meet you at the door and tell you to leave after insulting you. There are other wonderful piano businesses in the Bay Area, I will never visit this store anymore.

Do yourself a favor and read all reviews posted here and on Yelp. What a strange experience it was, upon arriving at the store, the owner told me to leave. Then he told me that I could look around without touching any piano. After reading

As a piano teacher for over 30 years, I have been to many piano stores in my life. Never have I found such a wonderful collection of instruments as is the case at R.Kassman.

I was originally referred to this company by my associate, Robin Sutherland, who is the pianist for the San Francisco Symphony. He told me that he bought his piano there and that he knows Mr. Kassman. Robin was right: Kassman has an encyclopedic knowledge of pianos, and can match any student or professional to the right piano for them.

The inventory ranges from entry level used pianos to the most expensive hand-made pianos from Germany. I selected a wonderful Sauter piano from the Black Forest of Germany for my personal use, and two days later brought in a student who bought a wonderful Ritmuller upright for their 10- year old son.

You simply can't find a better collection of pianos anywhere in the Bay area. And the professionalism and knowledge of Mr. Kassman is without compare. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Walking into this piano store, looking for a high end upright,I was unprepared for what was about to happen. I had not read any of the reviews of this store. I was met by the most rude, pretentious, obnoxious and overall not nice guy on

Pros: Most varied collection I've found

Cons: Hard to pick just one

As a rule, piano dealers have a terrible reputation--somewhere between pimps and used care salesmen, and usually closer to pimps. This isn't to say that there aren't some wonderful dealers out there--I particularly recommend JB Pianos in

Both a friend and I, along with our 2 children (an infant and 5 y/o) stopped by the piano store today to explore the possibility of renting or purchasing pianos. Mr. Kassman was extremely gracious, knowledgeable and spent almost 2 hours

I was in Berkeley today, and made a stop at Kassman innocently and unknowingly. It was quite a shock, I had never visited this place, but I am always keen to meet people in the business, and make contacts. I happened to drive by to notice

If you like to meet an arrogant salesman / owner who is full of himself and belittles his customers, this store is definitely for you! This place should be called "R. Crapsman...I'm Better & You $uck" for his attitude. Even the nice guys
