This is my first real post. As others have done I've been lurking on the forum reading about different pianos, etc. while I've been shopping for an upright piano. I bought and read Larry Fine's book and price supplemental and have gotten a lot of great advice while reading other people's posts at this forum.
Purchasing a piano can be a daunting task especially if you try to sample as many different pianos as possible. At the beginning it seemed like I could never narrow my choices down. I tried many nice pianos during my shopping adventure - Charles Walter, Petrof, Yamaha, Boston, Kawai, Kemble, Baldwin, Schimmel, Weinbach, Bohemia, and others.
There was one comment that I kept reading on this forum and to paraphase 'the piano will sing to you' and I'm thinking people are nuts. Well, it happened! I played a Bohemia Concerto 132 that 'sang to me' and I knew then what piano to buy. I was very fortunate to visit Phil Warfield at Warfield Pianos in Catonsville, MD who loving prepared my new instrument. I am so happy :3hearts:
I've read enough posts to know that pictures are required. I did my best but it was difficult to get decent pics without glare. The finish on the piano is polished mahogony. http://www.pianoworld.com/Uploads/files/P2230083_edited.JPG http://www.pianoworld.com/Uploads/files/P2230088_edited.JPG http://www.pianoworld.com/Uploads/files/P2230089_edited.JPG http://www.pianoworld.com/Uploads/files/P2230092_edited.JPG
