I am not at all impressed, especially with the typical no haggle Steinway pricing policy. They will likely charge full MSRP of $6,000. However, it would be the lowest cost in joining the Steinway Artist program, as all Steinway artists are required to purchase a Steinway piano. Obviously, they will sell millions.

Following the success of Yamaha, and to a lesser degree Suzuki, Kawasaki has announced this week that they will be expanding their musical instrument market:

Honda is expected to make a similar announcement later this year.

There is no Steinway "digital" piano - where's a legit link?

No photos to be found on the Steinway website.

Only a fool is fooled.

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

Seriously, have you seen the Toyama 165? It's -basically- a Yamaha grand piano designed by Toyota. (See Youtube for videos of the Toyama 165 grand).

I cannot agree here. I think there is rich material for a doctoral thesis. At least one. (average length 90,000 words)

ps pv88, Do you mind if I use this "Only a fool is fooled" as a signature line. It rocks!

I was working a part time job at a convenience store at night.
Had a biker couple come in. They started bugging me about when we close.
I said we never close. Lost the keys even.
They just kept bugging me.
So I gave in.
Told them we close one day a year. Lock the doors. No gas, no nothing.
He kept bugging me about what day that is? Is it Christmas?
I said no.
He said: Is it New Years?
I said no.
He said: If it isn't one of those two days. What day is it?
I said: April 1st
