It's very old. at least 12-13 years old. And it wasn't exactly yamaha's top of the line when it was released. I'd say a risky deal for something that old. If you really like it, you could probably haggle a bit and get them to drop the price.

Thanks Peter! I think this is a question of taste ... especially when it comes to the effects. In Russia I had this old upright German piano Pfeifer's Capella, I liked it a lot. Soft touch and nice vintage sound. Now I moved and I gotta get myself

Maybe you would have the same critique of the tuning if it were an attempt at ET. Piano quality and hammer technique for stability has to be factored in. Then there's always one's personal preference for or having been conditioned to ET, the later is

Is it a competition or a festival - something that is judged, but any student can advance to "state" or another level, or no advancement at all, just judge comments? The word competition can encompass many different things, and so it's hard

I did notice that raising the pitch from 438 to 440 on my Seiler improved the decay time. It doesn't sound so dry.
