It's a 1961 Hamburg Steinway. It doesn't appeal to me. I think that style is hideously overdone but some people like it

I'm not sure if this is meant humorously or not! That piano does two things to me: 1. makes me go "ugghhh" 2. makes me think of wedding cake frosting.

Very true. Looks very similar but could be a basket case therefore the price. Buyer beware. Probably needs everything and possibly undoing of work done in the past. So many are fitted with inappropriate hammers that are much too heavy and hard.

If you like it that much, maybe you should run the idea of a trade-in by your dealer? Sure you'll make a loss, but it might be an acceptable loss. The fact that you've had work done on your C7 means the dealer won't have to do much to it to sell it.

20 years on bass should give you a solid sense of rhythm, and a good feel for harmony. But it's one note at a time. Piano is different -- a lot of the skills are "chord skills". My guess is that you'll breeze through Alfred quickly. If

Suggestion: . . . Don't think of a digital piano as a "lifetime purchase". The F-20 will be fine for learning, for a few years at least. If you eventually say: . . . "I need something better -- my piano is limiting my playing"

Pull back checks out of the way, I guess they are preventing the wippens to move enough. Checking distance is one of the last steps in the regulation list. Regulate a maximum of 5 samples in the bass tenor and treble to make sure they work fine. The

"Appears nearly identical" is the important point. Appearances are extremely misleading when it comes to pianos. Especially ones that have had work done on them. I have seen numerous pianos that have been "rebuilt" that probably p
