So glad to hear the happy ending, as you could tell from previous posts that these things often don't end well. But you seemed to get an honest donor, an ok mover and a great technician. Now it's time to start playing! Enjoy!

This is an interesting and timely topic because it does come up often and it always evokes either one answer or the other. One answer always seems to be that one always tunes to standard pitch, regardless and that is often accompanied by "no mu

You can always take the pianos "temperature" when it arrives by touching the casting and then touching a heavy metal piece that has been in the room all the time to judge how different they are. If the piano is really cold-follow the advice
