I would definitely consider a Walter vertical piano,assuming it was in good condition. If the styling of this particular cabinet is too ornate for your taste, remember that Walter also makes a 45" studio vertical in a simple, institutional-styl

Chicago Kimballs are not such bad pianos, actually. The near-universal loathing among techs for the brand is mostly aimed at the post-1959 models. That's when Kimball was bought by a furniture company and production was moved to Indiana, where qual

This piano is still up for sale. I haven't been to see it because of a ridiculous caveat. I'm not in love with the case, altho beautifully done. I like the simplicity of my Yamaha P2. Please tell me if I'm an idiot.

I am contemplating a refinish or an old 1860s Steinway, though I am not sure if that is the best thing to do. It is a beautiful piece. The finish is original and has patina charm. So much I am not sure if refinishing it is the way to go. Is it best t
