I live in Cincinnati, and so BHA isn't really terribly far from me, but I have never gone up to visit. I had talked to them a couple years ago when they had a couple grands I thought looked interesting, and then never went up to see them.
Something there you want me to tell my wife I have to go visit to give you a report? ;-)

I've watched a few of their online videos and was impressed with their presentation. If they are still in the piano business in todays economic climate, they must be doing something right...

I believe many of their used Yamaha pianos are grey pianos, which is not necessarily good or bad, just a point of information.

Probably not bad to carry grey market yamahas as I've seen one local authorized yamaha dealer here in so cal carry grey market yamahas..

As for BHA, I've seen alot of their listings on eBay and they seem to be good prices.

Regardless of what a Yamaha dealer's practice is, the Yamaha corporation does not recommend grey market pianos for use in North America. They even have a page on their website to help people identify such pianos by serial number.

I work a few miles south of BHA but I haven't visited the store for, well, decades. One of these days I should drop in.
