Must be special design only for baroque music wink


Couldn't they just hire a tuner for a pitch raise?

This ad isn't funny except of the price. $30,000 for an old nondescript upright. Yikes!

Here's a piano that plays recognizable music, it's just sort of out of tune. But it is cheap! http://nashville.craigslist.org/msg/3673987224.html

"You could play it and deff tell what song it is but if you have any musical sense you could tell some keys are a little off. Just make me am offer."

This kind of thinking is right on the money why so many people rarely get their piano tuned. If you can still recognise the music, then it's still in tune!

If you have any musical sense, you probably would not be buying a Whitney spinet.

The 52 keyed Kawais are able to do a key stand to attain the 5'4" tall measurement. Or, it will be purchased by an NBA'er.

Wow.

How many are tempted to call him just to tell him what his spinet is really worth?

The players back should be nice and warm with the gas fireplace going. Not too much wiggle room there.

The aluminum is so light that it's needs extra music books just to hold it down.

I guess it was a "concert grand" sized cow that died to make that cover.

I was tempted to 'Flag' it as 'miscategorized.'

The self-sliding music rack is particularily elegant.

That's one ugly piano!

From an ad for a Tom Thumb piano mentioned on the Piano Forum:

"It has 34 white keys; I didn't count the black keys. Most of the keys still play."

Good find! I mean the entertainment value of course, not the piano smile

Looks like a video game is the highest hope.
