Buying an older small grand - 11/17/12 11:03 AM
Looking for help sifting the volumes of hype, misinformation, and salesmanship re buying a vintage baby grand piano. Is there some sort of guidance on different makers to favor, or to avoid, or any other info out there? We are not wanting to pay the "Steinway tax" as we are adult non-classical beginners and don't need our piano to make a statement. We have read Larry Fine's book and website in detail and also have seen a site "marthabeth.com" as well as "pianobluebook", in which the writeups on vintage pianos all read like manufacturers' press releases. Can anyone offer some guidance with this? Thanks in advance!
