snaps, what is the model number on the 5'9", I wasn't aware they made one in that particular size. BTW 8200 was really a great price, I'm basing that on the cost of their 5'3"

As to the soundboards on both pianos, they are both pretty much constructed the same way in most sizes, but as you mentioned in the post, you selected the piano that you liked the most. Hard to argue with that smile

I think the model # for the 5'9" Ritmuller is 'GP183 R1'. Is the sound board on the Ritmuller laminated (as is the board on Pearl River branded pianos).

the pearl river didn't bother to show the grain on the soundboard, the ritmuller had a beautiful grain and construction. not to mention the renner action (agian, im not very knowledgeable) but it was the way it played that made her decide on it, and my wife has no regrets about it.
It's nice you enjoy your piano - but a 'Renner' action it surely doesn't have.

If that's what your salesman told you - he was lying.

Plain and simple.

Norbert cool

I didn't say "Ritmueller doesn't have a grand with Renner action".

Some of their 7' and bigger probably do....

I said, snap's above mentioned 5'9 for $ 8,200 *aint* - and the uprights 118 and 125 you looked at - *ain't* either.

Or were you told otherwise?

It's easy enough to check out....

Norbert shocked

Norbert thank-you for the reply, i know the upright i bought doesnt have it, i didnt think they made any ritmuller upright with renner action, as i was in the dealer and the owner showed me the ones with renner action and if my memory serves me the babies didnt. the dealer i goto is severly honest. he said the same thing as you now, but before i thought you were saying none of them had renner. sorry it was late....thank-you for the reply as it straightened me out:)

thanks for the information. the dealer came highly referred by some other musicians in the valley. the 183r1 is listed as a 6'0" home concert, but measures as a 5'9" (even on their website). i may have been mistaken on the renner action. my wife says it isn't an actual, but an copy of it. ???? again, im not the musician, nor the expert. that's why im here. she played it, and she picked it.

I had a Pearl River dealer drop the name 'Renner action' during a pitch for PR. I've yet to see any evidence of Pearl River actually using Renner actions. I've made an inquiry to Ritmuller regarding which, if any, of those pianos use Renner actions but haven't gotten a response yet. I'd also like to know if Ritmuller uses a solid or laminated soundboard. It isn't always easy to get the info you want.

Norbert 5'3", 6' Ritmuller grands are available with a Renner action, a Detoa(sp) action, or a Pearl River action, so I don't know where you come off saying the dealer was lying if a customer was told they received that. For anyone wondering if their Ritmuller has a Renner action they can just tilt the fallboard down about 1/2 way and peer into the action cavity. The hammer rail is wooden and has a Renner logo on it.

The 183 is in fact a 6' long piano and it measures as such on every one I've seen smile Remember to you must measure from the keyslip, to the back of the lid.

Quite oftent the "model number" of a given piano is its height/length in centimeters. Thus the GP183 stands for Grand Piano 183cm (183divided by 2.54 = 72.04" which = 6')

In any case congrats to all on their pianos smile
