Why second? My little brother and I both use the piano and it's annoying not to be able to play when I get home. That way we can both practice without interference!

Finally made my choice; I had doubts whether to go for the Petrof upright piano or this Hamilton baby grand concert piano, but I realized after playing extensively, that this sound is unrivaled. It's a tad more pricey (this one ~10.000 euros compared to the Petrof 7.000 euros), but a good investment. :)

Here are some pics (not gonna include my dad in one of the pics :o)

Hello, his new piano! Seriously though, great! May I inquire as to the cost of such a marvelous instrument?

The original price was roughly 16 thousand Euro. Since last week it's been at ~10.

Okay....that was the expected number, but still, hearing it isn't easy, and I wasn't even paying for it. Well worth the money though. I can imagine you now, Phantom of the Opera Remastered....

That is a beautiful specimen.

You'll have to make a video so we can hear it in action.

Thank you. I'll make a video, once I can find some spare time after it has arrived somewhere at the end of next week or thereafter, because their courier has holiday until coming Thursday.

10k for a baby grand is pretty OK, to be honest. There are plenty above the 20k range, although most of their are not baby grands, but grand concerts. :uhm:

Oh well.

I've got an old Steinbach in my living room. Haven't played in forever and probably need to tune it. But I'd rather get a keyboard.

It's highly recommended to at least tune it twice a year, esp. if you're in an environment wherein the humidity levels rise and lower constantly and in a volatile manner.

Usually, concert pianists have it tuned after every so few weeks and in the most extreme cases, both before and after each performance (although in the majority of cases, it is the piano of the Hall and is as such, tuned properly).
