Hey everyone.

I'm sure there are a few well known piano techs in socal that have experience working on Hamburg Steinways and that do prep for concerts etc?

My Hamburg D was selected in october and is due to arrive at my home this Tuesday.

Who are the Ron Conners of the West Coast?

Thanks smile
Noam

Congratulations! Richard Davenport is on the west side of LA. Incredible technician, and great with new piano prep.

Greetings Mr Noam-

Congratulations indeed.

>My Hamburg D was selected
That sounds awfully passive. How/where did you select it?

I hope it will be totally satisfying.

Best wishes-

Davenport is a good choice. So is David Anderson.

I had a dear friend/piano/Steinway expert fly to Hamburg 10/29/2013 to select it for me. I didn't want to go because of my terrible experience in the NY selection 3 years ago.

I'm extremely excited but I have not heard or played this piano yet. Expect a full review soon 😊 that will sure pies off many people on this forum thought my whole story is a fake.


And thank you guys for the recommendation. I will sure be in touch with davenport. Thanks again!!!
