Sure, then for competition, you call the technician before so the piano is tuned, and you take out the protection before the show !

The cloth may more lower the strenght of a few hich pitched partials in the head of the pianist than in real..

It's only silly if one is not interested in the aesthetics of the pianos's appearance. Many people play with the lid down and hinge folded back or with the lid raised. And I'd guess many think the plate and strings visible under those circumstances are far more beautiful than if they're covered with a string cover. I'd guess this is the primary reason those with expensive pianos don't get string covers.

I don't think anyone thinks they have to see the insides of a piano when it's closed or the tuning pins to play better.

Oh, really? I'd love to see the survey confirming this.

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

Why would you think I based my statement on a survey? Quite silly.

What makes you think that owners with expensive pianos don't purchase string covers? In other words, prove it!

Silly again. Why would I have to prove anything? I just gave an opinion and clearly stated it as such. This isn't a court case. And besides, I didn't even say that those with expensive pianos don't get string covers. I said that the main reason they don't get string covers was appearance.
