Why use が in the sentence below? Would を be equally correct?

このピアノはとてもいい音します。

    Rather than try to explain the reason for the "〜がする" pattern, I would just memorize it for certain words: 音、匂い、色、even things like 吐き気 and 頭痛. Also know that you generally cannot replace が with を in these cases.

The structure of Japanese in SOV, on the other hand English's is SVO.

If here you take the particle を,piano would become the object, and

はとてもいい音がします。

mening, in English "has very good tunes".

So if you put the を instead Object comes first, that would sound strange, instead the particle は needs to come to make the Subject.

Thanks.
