Hi. I plan to be there for a while this afternoon, but right now I'm at an internet cafe west on Katella at Magnolia. (It's $2/hour here, as opposed to 25c/minute or 40c/minute there at a kiosk or Kinkos, hidden in the lobby.)
I'd like to get pictures, but I'm without a camera.
I've been searching local stores (online and by calling them) but haven't found the one I've been looking at buying - Fuji F30 or F31fd. Too bad, cause I wanted pics of the insides of all the 8' and larger grands and 50" and larger uprights, as well as pics of me playing Rubenstein's piano, the Fazioli F308, and a couple others. Just in case someone has a camera and sees me there (I'll be wearing my tag of course), I am carrying a 1GB CompactFlash card with me (but I don't have SD or XD right now).
So where should I be on the lookout for you guys? I'll try to be down there sometime around 1:45, and I'll stay till about 5:30 or 6. I'll probably make a quick stop in the main downstairs area to look around and try some of the virtual pianos, as well as a few keyboards, then go upstairs and hang out around the various pianos.
I saw Ivory yesterday, and tried a couple settings on the 10-foot Italian grand. I was actually somewhat disappointed. I couldn't get the rich tone abundant in upper (7kHz+, and not just 1 or 2 strong ones, but a full spectrum) harmonics out of it that I wanted. (Maybe I got spoiled on the tape I have listened to 10000's of times since I was 5 that has a piano that sounds like a large upright version of a 55+-year-old Baldwin Hamilton.) The actual F308 that I played was fairly nice, though.
Probably sometime while I'm there I'll go ahead and jump on the overpriced internet station I mentioned above, to check this forum and see if there have been any replies.
Another way is to email me - I can access my email account from my cell phone. I had to change my email address in my profile cause the one that was there I couldn't access from my cell. It's set to hide my address, but allow users to email me by using the icon. If you email me, I might give you my cell # (I have txt msg capability too), but I'm not giving it out publicly.
