David and BDB, Thanks for your thoughts on caster cups. Yes, that's what I had in mind.

However, now that I know what they're called, I find all sorts on the internet, which leads to two (hopefully) final questions;

1. What material for the cups is most suitable? I see everything from (supposedly strong) plastic to hardwood. And,

2) Should I purchase cups with a felt (or other material) backing, or cups without any backing? Keep in mind that they will placed under the piano which will sit on an area rug which will, in turn, sit on the hardwood floor. Of course, I hope to place the piano onto the perfect spot after the flooring is installed, but I'd like to give myself the flexibility of moving it just a few inches if/when necessary to do so.

Thanks again!


Bert

newbert:

You are going to have a hard time, I would think, moving the piano if it is sitting on an area rug without moving the rug along with it, or, worse, causing the rug to bunch up in certain spots when you try moving the piano.

Perhaps you need to find the ideal spot for the piano before the rug goes under it.

Regards,


BruceD

I found that I didn't need a large area rug under the piano with my cork flooring, just under the bench and pedals for protection. Also went with Piattino caster cups.

Miguel,

Nice to see a real pair of speakers ( along with a lovely piano and room).
