Nice set-up there, Morodiene!

Morodienne, that's a way large piano! Is that a P284 mistral? And that's only the attic?

I'm not sure what the model is, I think it was built in the late 80s (the Renner action has a date 1988 stamped on it). I'm in the attic in WI, but my Petrof stays in FL over the summer, so that picture is our living room down south. Here's the attic picture (which was posted on another thread):

It does. When we moved in there was carpeting in this area and I really did not like the sound of the Petrof since it's already a very warm timbre. Once we got the wood flooring in, it was back to sounding beautiful again.

1988? I thought the mistral was introduced later. Then it must be a P I (283cm). I thought they added the big decal on the side only later but apparently not.

It's hard to say...it was before Petrof had a presence in the US, so it's an import. Also has the original ivory keys, so that should tell you something about the age.

The piano (a Baldwin L, 1954) has new hammers, shanks, flanges, keytops, bushings and a complete regulation... All done by me! Yes, I'm proud of that! Both the piano and the speakers (E-V Patrician 800s) were a real score from a surplus auction at Western KY University where I worked at the time. I'm now retired!

I got the piano for $500 (about $3000 total invested, including moving, at this point). The Speakers for $70. It was a good day. :-)

Wow, and I thought have gotten a few good deals on pianos! smile

I believe your Baldwin bargain tops them all, Woodog! thumb

Nice pictures, and a nice piano! And, my hat is off to you for doing the work yourself! I'll bet it sounds great!

Here are some pics of mine with basic sound treatment. The burlap sacks are stuffed with fluffy insulation. I will do a much better job of treatment. Kinda embarrassed to post more than this right now. Gotta admit. Those sacks do have a style to them. smile
The sound effect with just this is impressive.

Unfortunately my keyboard lives in the living room, upended on its side as there's no space to set it up permanently until we move.

My (upright) piano lives in my piano room. It used to be called the office (and a realtor would call it the dining room, but I have my dining table in the living room), but, while the desk and files are still in there, once the piano arrived the room was rechristened. Not immediately, but slowly over time I started less and less to call it the office and more and more to call it the piano room.

My cheap keyboard lives standing on its end in my work office (not my home office), because for a while I was working on things at the office on the keyboard after work, but not currently.

My miniature two-octave travel keyboard (hooks up to a computer) lives in my suitcase.

And my ultra-miniature two-octave ultra-simple keyboard app lives on my phone.

David the white rabbit also looks wonderful, like he's going to keep your feet warm. You have no foot pedal anyway? Don't you need it?

Cats love pianos. Mine will go inside my Petrof when I keep it open (and I usually do, that thing is heavy). I have felt over the strings so it's not a problem. It's a bit scary for them when I start playing though and don't realize they're still in it! wink

Nice bunny foot-warmer! Do they like to chew wires? I noticed all your wires are off the floor.

Morodeine and wouter79 - yes, the bunnies love to chew wires, so that's the piano where I practice without a pedal as an extra challenge (my main instrument used to be harpsichord anyway). The CP4 is in a bunny-free room elsewhere. (The white bunny has a sister but she's not such a music fan.)

I try not to teach from my home, so they usually alternate between the Schubert upright and the Yamaha at the school. If they do come to my house, however, they play the Petrof smile. Now with the addition of my MP11, I may have them play on that more than the other two. The acoustics are nice and good experience, but the MP11 feels better than the pianos I have at the school.

Here is my Kawai CN24 in the dining room. All of the digital pianos I had in the past were always placed in this same location. The bench is home made and I always used that ever since I started playing, need to replace the padding its getting flat.

I don't think I've ever posted a picture of the digital I bought a couple of months ago for my humid summer house. Although the acoustics of the room is not ideal, I got used to it quite quickly, and after adjusting a few settings, its sound and touch are not so different from those of my Yamaha upright at home.

And no, it didn't come with a matching bench frown
