I guess we do, they just aren't that big by comparison. Craigslist is so infamous the name has entered the popular vernacular - even here in Australia. The closest thing we have would be "Gumtree", but it's really tiny and doesn't have a reputation like Craigslist. It's quite respected actually. It's mostly eBay in OZ.

Gumtree is the same as Kijiji that we have in Canada

I found my piano on Gumtree UK.

Looked at a few, the last two being suitable. Cost more to move of course than to buy.

In a way the experience helped, I quickly learned what a really BAD piano looked, felt and sounded like. "Its got a good Iron frame" ... which it did have, it also had a nice birdcage and 250 very different notes smile

I'm delighted with the modest piano I now have.

I don't know if anyone else will find this humorous, but I know I did... Apparently the sounds of the player piano are not quite as popular as it used to be. This family decided to put a stereo on top of their player piano. Which, by the way, you can buy on Craigslist for $500...

Wow. You know what the best part is about that listing? Is when they say "All that is needed is a little touch up can easily be resold for 2x the amount asking". In that case... I'll Take It!

Here's an upright with a grand keyboard. But they didn't put any pictures.

Sorry for OT (as not listed on craisglist but ebay)

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290532070438&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

Astonishing. Now a new owner for 799 USD only.

Ran in the minimum two rounds in ebay.com. A Steinway Square, falsely set on the timeline as it is never a serial no. 3113 but probably an 31130 or 31131 or.. or 31139, last figure omitted by error. So built in 1875. Of the first series of the very last version of Steinway squares, full compass w. 88 keys.

There were squares w. 82 keys CC to a4(?), 1853 to any around 1860, then 85 keys, AAA to a4 (?), built 1860 to 1875, and starting 1875 the last versions w. 88 full keys, AAA to c5(?). This item belonging to the last series, built from 1875 to 1889.

So one of the first examples of the last series. Playable, with some minor work to the outer carved wood. Sold by auction at an extremely low price. I was very much thinking about it - but Ovid, New York - finger lakes, half way from NYC to the Niagara falls.. In the mddle of Nowhere.. Nice nature, assumed.. But such transportation needs organisation, and Costs to get it to Germany probably additional 2.000 USD...

Pheew.

Congrats to the new owner.

I saw an advert on a Canadian Craigslist
that stated; For sale, a " uptight " piano.
Had to chuckle.

They should lower the date by about 50 or 60 years, too.

I'm sure this is humidity controlled and just needs a tuning...

Funny…I just had a call last week; some guy looking for a grand piano plate to hang in his music studio….didn’t ask why though….you just never know what is going to sell in the marketplace……
