Gorgeous piano. I have heard such great things about Walter pianos but have not been able to try one in my area. It is always exciting to try a brand- and a particular piano-you do not know for the touch and sound. Betcha you can't keep away...

It's everything I expected - and more! I had played Walter pianos a few times before and thought them one of the best uprights, but with a full prep and tuning it really sounds great, none of that "honky-tonk" quality that a lot of uprights have.

And the photos don't do justice to the high-gloss ebony finish. It is flawless. I know, I looked for flaws high and low; there aren't any.

One thing I noticed right away: an acoustic piano is very unforgiving. You don't voice a chord properly and it sounds awful. If you don't maintain a smooth touch the unevenness of the notes is magnified. This forces you to really pay attention and work at it. Plus you get such wonderful feedback from the instrument, like it's a living and breathing thing!

I will still use my digitals for practice, but for polishing and to get the full pleasure of playing you really need a fine acoustic. There is still no substitute.
