So, I am on the verge of purchasing a new Estonia L190 but would like a technician to look it over first, out of an abundance of caution. Problem is, the piano is in Chicago (Cordigans), but I live in St. Louis, so I don't know who to call. I want a really good technician, with no conflict of interest and preferably one who has experience with Estonias. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

After reading about some others' bad experiences with overtones, I thought I should get a professional opinion. I thought the piano sounded great but I'm just an amateur player.

Try David Graham of Sycamore, IL. He is very highly regarded and fair-minded. I can get you his phone number if necessary, if you send me a PM.

hi hotcat, I like my tech. His name is Julian. I can get you his # and contact. By the way, did you get my PM? i am curious at the price that Cordigans gave you as I'm hoping to be in the market sometime in 2014-2015. so knowing what they listed and offered now would be very helpful as a reference. thanks!
