My piano arrived just over an hour ago. I've waited 27 years for this day!

I hope so too for your sake! It's a Sejung 187cm with a Teutonic name on the fallboard - the house brand of the dealer here in Malaysia.

Come on Pangor! How can you expect to spread the fame and fortune of C. Steinbert with no mention of that illustrious name? grin

You shopped comparatively and comprehensively. I think you're probably on safe ground saying it's an upgraded Sejung. Please hang around here and report how it goes in the first few months with break-in and service.

Congratulations to you!

What an exciting day!

Who needs to eat when there's a piano in the house?

Wow, Congratulations!

I think that sometimes we get so hung up on brands that we forget about the magic of music. (I wrote a song once entitled "the magic of music" smile )

Enjoy!

Thanks everyone, for sharing in the joy.

I've been playing Bach fugues very quietly for the past hour, after a belated dinner, but it's 1130 pm now and for the sake of neighbourly goodwill, I'll give the piano a rest! I am indeed pleased to observe that the action was responsive enough to allow me play quietly, with a balanced tone throughout.

Turandot: You have a point there. Who am I, through my reticence, to stand in the way of what might possibly be a growing worldwide market out there for a sort of Simpsons Steinway? The latest I've heard about the Challens and the C.Steinberts is that the new shipment is going to come with Ciresa soundboards, which is an optional "upgrade" in the Sejung catalogue anyway.

I'm getting a free tuning in a month's time. Perhaps I'll post a recording once I've put in some practice to undo 27 years of lack thereof, and you good people in this forum can give me some advice about what I can think about getting the tech to tweak as far as the tone is concerned, and as far as my rudimentary recording equipment will allow one to give an opinion on the mp3 file.

I think I need to take time off this weekend to go shopping for a rug to place under the piano.

Congratulations on the new piano. If you can drag yourself away from it long enough to rug-shop, post another photo of the completed decor.

There's very few events that are as fun or exciting as "new piano delivery". Congratulations and we look forward to your first recording.

Pangor,

I'm sure of one thing. You're no Simpson. You sorted through your available options and then pulled the trigger. The Ciresa thing could be just eye candy. The board's only as good as the belly it's fitted into. In a lot of cases swapping out the board is in the interest of an upgraded selling price.

Actually, what's holding Sejung back in the US is not its relegation to entry level in the charts. It's supply....hard to get. Sejung has probably turned its eyes more to the Asian market.

There was a glut of unsold Sejungs here a few years ago at liquidation prices. But now we've gone from feast to famine.
