My two pianos-my Clavinova with it's successor, the C7! (I think the Clavinova gets a little jealous, seeing as I spend most of my time on the grand, but I still enjoy having the digital!)


Full prop, with the duster I obsessively use in the background, and the carpet (which actually fits perfectly underneath) beneath the piano to absorb sound, more than anything:

laugh


...now just to pay off the 'rents.... wink
(P.S. Thanks to Edtek for the help with the posting procedure! smile )

Wow, "Concertpianisttobe"

That's a beautiful C7. I have had my eye on one of those here in Houston. I just don't have the room for two grands, and I've fallen back in love with my ancient Knabe after a truly gifted tech gave it a good voicing and did some action work that lightened it up to my liking.

Well thanks, crogersrx!! I'm so fortunate to have her. It's a great piano. And that's fantastic to hear about your Knabe, I'm so glad that you could have it adjusted to suit your liking more. I've never played one, however I think it'd be interesting. I believe my teacher has an older Chickering...(not that that relates too much, it remotely reminded of me it, I guess.) laugh
Regards!
Matt

Hay Wayne - I'm jealous of your acoustic smile Looks nice.

Do you actually operate that boomerang?

I got my nephew one for Christmas a couple of years ago, but I don't know if he ever tried it. I was surprised that they are launched overhand, instead of flat like a Frisbee smile Any way, nice instrument(s)!

Was anybody else wondering how you can launch an acoustic overhand when they read the last post?

That's what technical exercises are for -- building strength!

That said, I can only launch digitals myself.

Hmmm . . . speaking of launching pianos . . . does anyone remember the link some one posted a few years back about an eccentric Englishman who launched old pianos with a trebuchet?

Oh . . . here it is . . .

Well, Dennis, I had to pass that on. My brother can never believe what I find on piano forums laugh He claims that some people get their news from Fox, and some from CNN, an I get mine from piano forums. Yup.

Thanks for the link smile

Only had my old lady since December but she seems very much at home. Wish I could play her better.



Some amazing rooms you all have and I like to see the production / studio type rooms as well as I enjoy synths too smile

Beautiful instrument, EP! I haven't had too much experience with C3s...I expect I'd like them, though! smile
And I also notice that we do the same thing with the carpet under our pedals, too!...you must also have a floor that gets a little cold on your feet?
The carpeting prevents that pretty nicely. wink

Actually, the floor is carpeted. The blue rug under the pedals is just so I don't wear a hole in the carpet.
BTW, I love your C7 - I took lessons on a C7 about 10 years ago - it was a fairly old instrument at the time, but was quite nice to play. I think it had been made in the 1960's or 1970's.

Haha oh ok, I see now...and thank you very much! This piano is about a 1981 I think, after I did some research on the serial, but whenever someone is over and they see it they pretty much automatically assume
that it is a new piano anyways, so that's cool! But yep, I think Yamahas are great pianos...certainly in my top 3 along with Bosendorfer and Steinway. (Is that too cliche?) -Though I played a really impressive Schimmel
a couple of weekends ago at a jazz festival, so I'm pretty fond of those now, too. It was just a really elegant, classy piano and it was definitely a remarkable instrument...it had a unique action. I liked it.
Still need to try a M&H...I hear that they're dreamboats.

You're right, Bosendorfers, Steinways, Schimmels, M&H's, etc. are all nice - it can be a never ending quest.
Personally, I've had a few, but I'm happy, satisfied, and through looking!
(I could say that about women, too, but then, I suppose that's one of the benefits of age). thumb

Here's a link to the FAQ on how to upload a photo. That should explain it for you.
Give it a shot - if you still have problems we can walk you through it.

Here's a photo of my piano. The room is usually lit nicely with indirect sunlight from the bay windows behind, and the front hall.

I've been enjoying travelling backwards thru this thread this morning.

Everyone is so happy with their pianos in their rooms.

Hi everyone,

two months ago I moved to a new city and started a new job. The perfect time to fulfill a long-held wish, to learn the piano. I started out with a cheap 49-key midi controller I bought some years ago (but had never used). I took my first piano lesson a month ago and realised I had to buy a good digital piano (a "real" piano is too heavy and impractical for my circumstances). After testing some pianos in a store I decided to get a Kawai CA-63. Last week it was delivered and here it is, my "music corner":



Since I have the Kawai I'm totally hooked and am so happy I started this musical journey and hope it will be a great one :-)

Plantmom - what a lovely, elegant room. I bet it takes some of the anxiety out of "red dot fever" when you go to record smile

rreida - how whimsical! Is that an old push lawn mower under the piano?

Bentsch - ooo, ooo, jealousy creeping in here. Nice piano. And nice banjo. I went to a concert a bunch of friends of mine put on last week, and there were about 4 banjoes. They called them "merrywhangers" in the program laugh Great fun. Welcome to the ABF - we're the perfect place for those hooked on piano.
