I bought a Brodmann grand from Norbert at Heritage Pianos one year ago. Not only is it a beautiful instrument( Macassar wood with blonde wood inlays)it is very satisfying to play.The action responds to the slightest touch but it is also capable of delivering a thunderous tone when called upon. Norbert was right on when he so highly recommended this Brodmann grand to me. In my eighteen years of teaching piano I have never had such enthusiasm from students about the piano! Bravo,Norbert and Brodmann.

I would like to post a picture that Norbert took of this piano but let him do that because I am not in a comfort zone with computer.

Myself I was torn between Brodmann and Hailun.
But when the local dealer sold their Brodmann 187 the day before I arrived (and I couldn't afford the 212) the equally as impressive Hailun 198, along with its gorgeous birds-eye maple inner rim, finally beckoned me.

Wow. I like that timber and finish. So much better than black. While I've wanted a piano for along time and finally have one, I'd never hankered after a grand (out of my price range, nowhere to put one and, fundamentally, wasted on me) ... but I'd love one of those.

I really like the stripe. Is it inlay or paint?

This is great to hear. I just bought a Brodmann PE187 from Pianocraft and it will be delivered Thursday. I don't have the space and I don't play well and I don't care!

My grad student daughter is taking my couch and coffee table and the cats can sleep elsewhere.

First things first.

"...I don't have the space and I don't play well and I don't care! My grad student daughter is taking my couch and coffee table and the cats can sleep elsewhere. First things first."

A player after my own heart. Dump the couch; kick that nasty entertainment center to the curb; remove the television to some other room. However, bookshelves don't take up much floor space and help the acoustics.

That old Russian proverb seems to fit: "If you want money, buy a new purse." In other words, if you want something in your life, make a place for it--- a nice place, where it will feel at home.

For those enjoying to look at some less common finishes,
Brodmann also makes these, alas by special order only:

http://www.pianoworld.com/Uploads/files/IMG_2149.jpg

A brand new grand called V188 will reportedly be shown at the upcoming NAMM show:

http://www.pianoworld.com/Uploads/files/BrodmannV188.jpg

Not knowing much about this piano, but quite curious.

Finally, the new 9' concert grand with designation "made in Germany" by Steinberg company in Thuringia:

http://www.brodmann-pianos.at/428.html

Not meaning to 'plug' - just latest news involving NAMM show for those at all interested.

Apparently the new 9' grand will be used in a number of concerts on main stage in large piano exhibition area.

Norbert smile
