I'm sure this is a nice upright piano, but $28,000 is a high price for an upright piano to be sold to schools. I hope they offer steep institutional discounts.

Yes, the seller didn't want to entertain my 25k. I guess we will continue our piano hunting. But how to tell we like the tone of a piano? And a lot of time, my wife, me and my son felt differently.
