It is a 5' baby grand. Just arrived today. There are only 2 guys to deliver the piano and they are very professional. I hope you all enjoy the pictures smile .

Just arrived!

Thanks snoopycar. I can't really remember what song did I play on my new baby.. I think either 'li xiang lan' from Jacky Cheung or 'Qing Tian' from Jay Chou. Haha..

The guy in orange t-shirt is my bf :p .

oorrr ya hor, you're taking the picture right?
Superb...

Is it dream came true? I kind of think piano infacutation don't go away, no anti climax. some gadget once you buys it the novaty wears off...

But a nice piano is the beginning of more songs to learn, more visitor to your home.... staying more at home..... you'll become an artist one day!

That was quite an adventure for the piano--having to ride the lift to the 13th floor.

Beautiful piano in a lovely room. I like the way you angled the piano. It makes it the focal point of the room. Gaby Tu

Wonderful pictures! Thanks for sharing. It was nice to see no "lyre-tipping" by the movers. Congratulations.

Now, get off line and go play your piano!

Congratulations, jarjar! It's a beautiful piano and looks great in your room. I bet you had more than a few anxious moments when it wouldn't go in the elevator the first time, though. laugh

Thank you everyone! It is really like a dream came true. I always dreamt of having a grand piano even since I was a toddler. Well, hopefully I could upgrade to a Shigeru Kawai in the future laugh

Axtremus, I'll pm you.

I did feel a little worried when it couldn't get into the lift. Luckily the mover finally did it. By the way, sorry for the oversized and blurry pictures. It was taken using my handphone wink

Congratulations on your new piano! It's always amazing to see what piano movers are able to do to get our "beloveds" into their new homes! Thanks for sharing the pictures and enjoy your new piano.

Thanks Deloris. I thought a baby grand would look small but indeed it looks very big in my house. Luckily I didn't buy a bigger one.

But the problem now is I heard a lot of echo, maybe my house is too empty. I'm planning to hang a curtain over the whole wall.

your baby grand looks really wonderful in your living room in the orange lighting. maybe you need another one grand side by side to reduce the echo..then both your bf and you could play the final fantasy them duet together...

hee hee, like snoopycar, I also thought the same as him, but not the one in orange though.

Haha snoopycar, the way you call kaka and yamyam is very funny and cute! I've tried all position of the lid and it still no good. The worst is when the lid completely closed.

You just need some soft surfaces in the room to compensate for all the hard ones. A few pillows, a rug or two, and/or a couple of big overstuffed chairs should work wonders. I think GM10 is the brightest of Kawai's grands, but obviously you liked the sound of it or you wouldn't have bought one. I think some soft surfaces in the room are probably all you need.

Congratulations on your new piano! May it bring you hours of fun, joy and pleasure! I am tempted to get a Kawai myself. Heard it has a clear tone to it!
