Congrats on the VPC1! - I'm sure you'll be delighted with it. I would vote for the Galaxy Vintage D or the Ivory American concert D - more favouring the latter if you're playing mostly romantic works although be aware you'll need to use an iLok USB

You're way overdoing your proposed difficulty level. With the previous version you posted in your other thread, I honestly thought you were consciously trying to evoke Op. 10 No. 1. And this one seems clearly evocative of Op. 25 No. 12. Really, la

Yes, it comes with lock. It locks both fallboard and lid at once. I always lock it when I am not playing, so my 2 very curious young sons cannot open the piano without me supervising, I am just afraid the fallboard may accidentally drop down. I will
