Very sad loss. Such a great pianist. Had the privilege of hearing him play in concert not so many years ago. Will treasure my collection of his recordings even more now....

UPDATE: we had all our favorite professionals add the Yamaha GC2 to the mix. All chose the GC2 after playing it so we removed the Kawai GX series from our potential options. Then, we made the mistake of playing the yamaha C1X right next to the GC2.

Wow thanks for all the replies. So I've noticed that my 2012 B has a different Kluge keybed than my previous 2002 B. The older B had a more classic matre wood finish to the sharps. On the newer one, its very glossy, but also weirdly textured.

Some pianists are not bothered at all by grimy, sticky keys. Some will even complain about the feel if you clean the keys. Some like them clean. When the first generation of artificial ivory that was porous came out a couple of decades ago-the key-

Just my opinion but personally if you've got the room try a C3X, there's a much better chance of getting more potential buyers if you decide to sell it in case your son doesn't want it in a few years, but the C2X is also a very popular sorta size for

I don't think you can go wrong either way. Obviously the C3x is a nicer piano, but that is a pretty big premium. I wouldn't take a loan out for the difference but if you have extra cash laying around then it may be worth it. Tell us what city or stat

I think the OP already owns a DP and said in one of his posts that the action in his DP is no. 1 above others. I'm not sure what kind of answers are expected here.
