Lots of things sell for amounts that have nothing to do with their intrinsic worth, such as stamps, coins, and paintings. . . . In a few years, when no one (alas) sees Casablanca any more, this piano will be worth a whole lot less. But as anyone wh

You need a specialist piano mover for a grand, they have to know how to re-assemble the legs and pedals, and they have the big padded board that straps to the bass side of the grand. Generic movers are OK for uprights.

In my area there is a common piano brand that has a steel pin block with tapered pins that are wedged in with large grub screws. They last for ever with no such thing as loose tuning pins or ever replacing the cracked wooden pin block.

IMOL, I'm afraid I do not have the parameters of this MP6 setup on the MP7. However, assuming the same (or similar) sounds are available, it should be possible to recreate it reasonably well. Best of luck! Cheers, James x

Nyíregyházi was a miraculously gifted musician who had a mental illness. BachMach2, who appears perfectly lucid, should not be pretending to have either the talent nor the handicap of that Hungarian pianist.
