I took a couple of quick shots of the piano this morning. They are FB hosted so not sure everyone can see them. I tried embedding the photo with the "insert image link" function but never could get it to work. Definitely computer challenged. If anyone can post the pictures without the link...please. And explain to me how you did it. confused

Coming up on 12 years this May 6 that I took delivery. Not a day has gone by where I don't realize how fortunate I am, and how lucky I was to be in the right place at the right time.

Thanks everyone. Yes, very inspirational and it has seen quite a few hours over the last 12 years.

The hammers are still in excellent shape. My tech says I have about another 10 years on them at the rate they are wearing. I don't have a heavy touch - lighter but firm - so that helps a lot.

The strings look good too as I always keep the piano covered when not in use. In fact I probably play a good 65% of the time with the lid down and the cover on. I don't need full or half stick to do my transposing of Jazz lines and voicings to all keys. But to be honest it's more out of laziness then anything else. I will put it on full stick more often when practicing the classical pieces though.

I also had the two heater Damp-Chaser system installed the first week I had the piano.

Dave, I listened to some of your Soundcloud stuff. The piano is lucky to have you playing it.
