This P series appear to be the "Ritmullers" of the international market.. In other words they are both designed by l. Thomma and they are both considered to be the premium line of pearl river. I've read nothing but good things about the Ritmullers. . And the price is certainly right for the local market. I believe the local store here is shipping them directly from China.
If i do make the purchase in the near future I will be sure to post up a review on said piano and a video.
It's one out of two piano stores in the island. The other ships xinghai pianos, not as good a rep in comparison to the standard pearl river must less the ritmuller line.
If any of my assumptions are incorrect wrt to the P series and Ritmuller line of pianos please do correct me.
I know ordering sight unseen is a gamble, but in the Caribbean it is actually the norm. Not like I will be able to travel anytime in the near future. Added expense plus no opportunity. Travel expenses add up.
There was another guy who ordered a hailun HG161 sight unseen and he couldn't be happier on this forum.
I can always voice the piano to my liking in case it is too bright but l.thomma designed pearl rivers seem to have a reputation for being warm so might not be a problem.
frankly owning a decent quality acoustic piano by itself is a privilege and a rarity down here.
Will keep in touch and post updates in case anyone is interested. It's about time I took the dive and get an acoustic piano.
Will still scour the local used market in case a diamond in the rough pops up
Forgive my lengthy post. It's easier to think aloud sometimes.
Feel free to express any opinions wrt to my dilemma,, the blasphemic practice of ordering sight unseen, etc. lol
In my defence we really do have little choice down here.
