Hi, Claudia. Was this Bosendorfer at a Trombino's? I just wanted to know, seeing as how I live in Pittsburgh and have been to a couple. Thanks.

As someone who recently has bought a lesser quality piano at a super discount, this sounds like a good deal. The 9 years the piano has had at the dealership has been very pampered; the piano is probably at the same level of degredation as a normal piano of maybe 3 years.

Look, you like the piano, which is very important for the stratospheric level of a brand like the Bosie. Years from now you will feel great that you had made the wise decision to buy this piano. And since the dealer will be replacing this with a Steinway, you have helped the American economy.

Claudia,
it must be a video, because I can't view it at work, it is blocked. I'll view it at home.
I read your post and I understand. By the way, I heard from my high level techn. that The Bos. factory is not producing small grands in stock, They have to be specialy ordered I wonder whether these are fancy wood inlaid and special editions one. So it is fortunate that you got yours! p

Hi Brahms, Thanks!!!!!
It is not a video. I put 5 pictures in a PDF file. And yes, if you are trying to download it in your work, you must be blocked to access to this type of links (your company doesn't want to risk that you may download a file with a virus).
Take care!
Claudia

Not only that... it sounds as a grand!!! Honestly... it needs a bigger room.
I am so impressed!

When I learn what's a good and relatively unexpensive gadget I can use to make a video with high quality sound to be seen through a computer, I will do it and share it here.
Any suggestions? What device should I buy that is not very expensive (brand, model, price)?
Don't tell me anything to record with the computer. My PC room is far away from the piano room, so it has to be with a portable gadget).

There's a comparison of digital audio recorders here. Clicking on the Model Nos. takes you to reviews. It'd be worthwhile to be confident that you understand what these recorders can and cannot do. Some of the folks here and on the digital forum can probably help.

The Sony PCM-D50 is well worth considering. The chart has been around for a while, but I think that the PCM-D50 is still that company's top model. If it's not available locally, amazon.com has it for $500.

Piano looks awesome. I'm just annoyed with myself for how much I would like to be a Bosey owner though I feel fortunate to own a C6. It all stems from that first time I sat at that 225 and there seemed to be such a difference from it and the others.

Hey boys, at least PART of my face is in my avatar. I'm not hiding behind a pic of my DOG! (OK, I'll use a Graemlin, just to be sure that's taken correctly: laugh ) It's meant to be self-deprecating since it's one of the more ridiculous looking photos of myself (although there are more).

And Deerwood D, I keep up with the temp up there because I have friends and business there and have to go myself from time to time. I honestly don't see how you do it. It's freezing enough here!

Claudia,

Many on these forums have supported the ZOOM H4 and ZOOM H2 company.

There are a few threads on them. See the SEARCH feature above and make sure that it searches through all the forums. The Adult Beginner's Forum I think, is where a thread that is about 20 pages long resides!

It does a good job.

Then one can go to the computer and download it to hear it. For better listening, put it on a CD and listen through your stereo system.

I have the Zoom H4. $250 or there abouts. Google for the best price.

Beware though...we often get the red light syndrome when recording ourselves!

I have had my Bosendorfer for 25 years (I bought it new in Germany). It is amazing!

The price of $60,000 is a price for a brand new one. If this one has been sitting in a show room for 9 years, it is NOT new! Has it really been taken care of during that whole time? It seems real strange it never sold in 9 years! Bosendorfer has never made more than 300 instruments per year and has been in business for 185 years. Their instruments are amazing!

Steve - You are responding to a thread which is over five years old.

It's much easier to bash a Steinway than it is to play one.
