Congratulations!

That is a very nice musical instrument, and a beautiful piece of furniture!!! (It's nice to have both in a piano... :-) )

Enjoy!!

It has to do with the internal design. Bass strings are overstrung and at a higher angle than the tenor and treble. When lining up the keys and strike points, the action is to the right of center.

For this same reason, it may be more exaggerated on medium and smaller uprights than on taller ones.

Enjoy your new instrument. I'll let Hailun know they had another vote for satin option. wink

Congrats on a lovely piano. I play a Knabe grand in our choir room at church. A very nice piano.
