Can I ask how I can get photos to post? I used to be able to use my Flickr account but it no longer works. I know how to put the URL in the Full Reply Screen>Insert a non-floating image , it's just every URL I put in there, from Flickr, Box.com, or Google+ doesn't actually post an image, it just makes a link.

I was having trouble the other day. I was posting the wrong link. Easiest is to go to an upload site like photobucket, or imgur, that offers a copy/paste link to the uploaded photograph; one where a) there are [img] ... [/img] tags around it, and b) where the link ends in .jpg (or .png, etc.)

Having never heard a 630 I can't tell. I've just uploaded a sample to the dpbsd site, so hopefully you'll get a bit of an answer to your question from that.

As far as I can see from specifications, the 650 has 128 poly compared to 64 on the 630, and uses Pure CF sound engine and has 4 levels of touch response.

The 650 has more voices etc. It has damper resonance, but I'm not sure if the 630 already had that or not.

For fun for beginners like me, there is smart chords a 1 finger chording.

The tweeters are a bit larger on the 650.

Otherwise, they lok remarkably similar.

By the way, there's a funny story behind the Steinway. I'd been looking for one for a while and went to a local store and put my name down on a list in case one came in. A few days later I got a call saying that this one had just come out of the factory after a complete restoration. It's serial number is 175439. If you look it up you will see it was made in 1916, when Steinways had much more hand craft.

I went in, tried it and bought it in a few minutes. Turned out, they had screwed up. Instead of looking at their list in chronological order, they looked at it in alphabetical. They were quite embarrassed, and so was I. But I'd already paid for it and had it moved to my house before I knew!

Beautiful, Afzal! I love that you placed that dark gray shag rug underneath the piano to give the space texture. Even the piano lamp and metronome blend in well. ;-)

Thanks. I still have too much reverberation though. The room is completely open as you can see from the original photos. Next step is to get some curtains up and dampen things down a bit

Hmm. Interesting idea. My general theme on that floor is shades of white/gray so that can work!

Thanks!

The room actually opens out into my office and a hallway, so it's not too loud in the space. No dehumidifiers, but it does have the Dammp-Chaser heating bar (or two of them I think) and the whole house air conditioning works to keep the humidity down.

jdeacon, I love the room, even if you had to stretch it out a bit to make it seem bigger smile

I love all the instruments, but of course, my favorite is the piano laugh

We have the same thought -- shades of white/gray. That's why I thought light gray (silverish-gray) curtains would work. :-)

Well, we're still up here at the Llama lodge high up in the mountains of northern Arizona getting poured nearly every single day. The amount of rain we are getting is nuts; higher than ever recorded before.....EVER!

The average annual rainfall in Phoenix is somewhere around 7 inches of rain...annually. We have gotten 13 inches of rain here in the mountains in just the past month and a half! And remember, we are in the high desert!


It seems much of the country that normally gets the rains isn't getting it and the deserts of all places is ending up with it. But I'll certainly take it! The trees and grasses are very happy. I get to use my riding lawn mower and actually cut grass instead of just blowing dust and rocks. These pics were taken yesterday in between more monsoon rainstorms.

In this pic, Mrs Hunky lays in the meadow. But she is a little pissed because I mowed down a bunch of wildflowers. They were thistles and I didn't want them to go to seed.

Hi There,

I recently purchased a 1927 Conover Cable Vertical. I'm totally in love with it. It played great and was pretty well taken care of but I have done some minor stuff to it to see if I could make it even better. But here are some photos of it.

I also toy around with my guitar but I'm not as into it as I am with piano and brass. I also play tuba and trumpet but I'm too lazy to take photos of them. smile I do have a much bigger amp now too. smile

My Tuba's name is "Huggy". I haven't named any of my other instruments yet. Oh I also have a Yamaha Portable Grand but I didn't play it nearly as much as I hoped to when I bought it. Now that I have the piano... never. smile

The guitar is an Epiphone Dot Studio.
