There is a great documentary called American Grand, available to view for free on Amazon Prime, that provides a fascinating view of what goes into a well-maintained piano.

Pianomania and Note by Note are also both good documentaries, though they have a little (or a lot) of the air of an infomercial about them.

I could simply not live east of the mississippi and not give Rich G and Cunningham Pianos a visit (Philly) if I were shopping. At this level of finance, the trip and the shipping are minor percentages. Also, add my voice to "there's a lot of fish in the sea not named Steinway" chorus.
