I have heard it said that the only difference between men and boys is the amount they pay for their toys. I have 2 really big toys. 1 is a 9' Bluthner. The other, bigger, one is a 12' 1,250Kg snooker table.

Since you like the pianos to be more mellow and darker I'd suggest for you to take a look at Brodmann and Pearl River, I'm currently amazed with my current piano.It also has a wonderful tone that will please you.
