Hi

Here's photos of Gus, my piano, taken in 2009. Who says you can't have a grand in a narrow, tall house!

Beautiful piano! And I think it fits perfectly in the space. The high ceilings make a huge difference. How long is that piano?

Thanks. The piano is 6 feet 9 inches. It's 1920, beautifully rebuilt by Steve Jackman here in Toronto.

They are on the outer edge facing up while you're playing instead of in front and are very small I must say. smile

You still can't see the dots here but here's the top.

I know it's a Digital but some day. It's great for recording and playing using transcribe and Audicaty. I made a box w all the interfaces to do everything at once (it's hard to see, left side under the piano). There is a another AB box behind the rack for the external speakers. I just ordered a surround kit and will mount the them this weekend. I also just put up the music art for the pic. It took me sense last Xmas to put it up. I hate putting holes in the wall. It's the only thing that's crooked. What a contrast. [Linked Image]

LOL. Actually there are two of them, and they're hexagonal. I used to use them for the studio monitors until I built the PVC mounts (with some help from a friend who has carpentry tools and such0. And the poster is colorful! Also a gift, it's a print of a San Fransisco 1967/68 New Year's Eve poster of a local concert, featuring Jefferson Airplane, Big Brother & the Holding Co. et al... But yeah, I'm not much of an interior designer. Ain't my thing...

Here's the Kawai CP209 and a sliver of the old Clavinova in my little music room.

This room is impossibly small/dark to get a decent photo. This is the best I could find, taken a week post arrival in 2012. His name is "Brio" and he's almost as old as I am. YIKES! But a beautiful instrument nonetheless, tone and touch very nice. A '67 Yamaha U1 3hearts

Still without a name, but Colin sounds promising...

Not particularly untidy area, but only because most of the stuff is inside the laptop. Otherwise I would also be a fan of the gravitational filing system. grin

Chewie, Ripley and Leela fight for the bench and the shelf over the pedals, so I've had to cover them. Only Leela (B&W) stays when I practice without headphones!

Evamar, yet another kitty lover I see :-D You will notice, kitties love the inset under the CA65 so you were right to provide them a little cushioning :), one of mine is often here when I play (a darker kitty, if the room is dimly lit, he is almost invisible against the rosewood)

hehe... I saw Bidule and thought she looks a bit like my Chewie. You can always recognise a pet owner by the care he/she takes before sitting down, turning a corner or using the stairs. grin

Finally got around to taking a picture of my piano room: It's a Yamaha C3, and the drums are Yamaha also.
In case you're wondering, the extra pedals are to turn the page on my iPads.

EP, did you have any problems adjusting to the fourth pedal to turn pages on your iPad? I've considered using one with my iPad. However, I'm concerned that I could make mistakes stepping on the wrong pedal.

Well, I started off using the pedal that came with the airturn, but it moved around too much so I took a couple of digital piano style damper pedals and am using them. It takes some getting used to - I have one to turn the pages forward and one to turn the pages back.
I don't have a problem hitting the wrong pedal, but it just takes some practice to be able to do it smoothly.
I have two iPads side-by-side that both turn with the same pedal, and one is always a page ahead, so I can turn the page when I'm in the middle somewhere, I don't have to do it right at the end of the page. Still getting used to it, but the beauty of it is you don't have to use your hands.

If I read this thread correctly 2 people named their pianos.

I don't really think it is, but I'm considering calling mine Colin... still thinking in names...

Many people name their houses (other than the street number that is given), so why not their pianos? Up to you, I would say, no harm.

Wow, you all seem to have such fantastic set-ups. I just moved home after university and I am playing on the dusty and not often used Technics SX PR-600 that my parents have. I know nothing about keyboards or pianos but this one is so old it has a floppy disk drive!

Pictures to follow soon

I think I'll call this keyboard "Hoover" ... I notice it knocks all the dust off my fingers in a matter of minutes.

My Bechstein is simply "Mr. B". He deserves some respect. My Avant Grand is "Aggie". Not very original I guess. grin
