This is my third post about my first time piano shopping.
You have all been so helpful to narrow down my search for a piano.
Here is my final choice of my search for a used piano.
Schimmel C120 made in 1992. Seller bought new in 1993. Daughter played on it, moved out and has been sitting for awhile in the house (very clean home).
The piano is immaculate! In and out. So I placed a safety deposit with the seller.
Next step to hire a technician...
The problem is when I called the closest certified technician to the seller, I kinda got a weird vibe from the call. He seemed very helpful then he asked me how much I was going to buy the piano for and where it was etc. I told him the lady wants 4k for it. Then he told me not to pursue it but to go to Big Ed's to look for a Yamaha there... http://bigedspiano.com/showroom1a.html
He said the Schimmels are not good pianos and he is not very fond of them. He said Yamahas will last me a longer time and it will be a better buy. So I went to the site above, and looked at the Yamahas...they were basically the same price as what the Schimmel is going for and they were older! So...do I just pass off the inspection and have my concert pianist friend take a look at it and buy it?
Oh, read my last post if you want to catch up on things.
Thanks for all your advice!
