Congratulations! - The piano is beautiful and I'm sure you will enjoy it for a long, long time. It almost looks like you built the wall for the piano.
Bill Reichert brings up an insteresting point. "Wanted, left handed RPT" They do exist.
Thanks Midlife, Bill, & Marty.
It's funny I thought the same thing about that wall, my place was built in the early 80's, the piano boom years so what do ya know, the contractor must have told them and don't forget the piano wall. I mean it's perfect.
It's about six inches off the back wall, I have 2 Auralex 4x4x24 Corner Fills stacked on top of each other so the sound does not bounce off the walls back there. The rug is custom made Sisal/Wool from Natural Area Rugs, that also absorbs sound, I also have the wool disc under the caster cups for vibrations. The tuning tech really liked the set-up and he heard the diffence with the Corner Fills removed, and placed back. The hardwoods floors makes all the world of difference.
The tuner might be left-handed, he never actually got up from the seat while he was tuning if I recall, he may have, but he certainly did not struggle tuning the high treble, or comment about a tight squeeze...maybe ambidextrous.
