A Universe of Music in a Local Showroom

88 Keys Piano Warehouse Brings Music into the Home

The English classical pianist James Rhoads said, “There are eighty-eight keys on a piano and within that, an entire universe.”  88 Keys Piano Warehouse’s Owner Alexander D’Von Boggs aims to bring that universe into Albuquerque homes with his selection of fine pianos. According to Alexander, his goal is to find good homes for his quality instruments where they can provide years of musical enhancement for the family and expand their children’s horizons. 

 The showroom has a boutique ambience in a Turkish style and features an impressive selection of quality pre-owned pianos in addition to new Boston & Essex brands - members of the Steinway family of pianos.

In addition to the showroom is a massive shop complete with staff dedicated to restoring vintage instruments. “People send us pianos from all over, and we make them like new again", says Alexander. At any given time over a dozen projects are in progress -  including a rare Grotrian-Steinweg grand manufactured in the early 1860's in what was then Prussia. The techs relish the opportunity to bring such special pianos back to life. All work is done in-house, which is a big advantage for his business.

Alexander has a lifelong interest in pianos and started playing at 10 years old. He says, “Being from the deep south, I was inspired by New Orleans jazz, blues, soul, and country music.” His showroom is decorated with elegant photos of music legends that give the place a refined setting. He has been restoring pianos for 25 years and running his dealership for eight years.

 88 Keys Piano Warehouse also provides in-home repair and tuning service, as well as rentals for events. Located at 1742 Menaul Blvd., NE

Open by appointment 7 days a week. Call 505.881.1650

88 Keys Piano Warehouse reveals an unexpected work-in-progress on the building’s exterior—a Mexican-style mural currently being painted by Pablo Zavala, one of the shop’s skilled staff. Pablo studied art in Mexico and is very knowledgeable of Mexican muralists. The painting is called “The culture that we should preserve."
