Hello PW,

First I need to say that I wish I had more spare time to spend here. I was here at the very beginning of PW and I have enjoyed it immensely over the past 20+ years. Sorry I have not been as present lately.

Anyway, I have a client who purchased a Bösendorfer Imperial from me, beautifully reconditioned, just a few years ago. He loves the piano, but would like to offer it to someone for a period of time while he reshuffles his living situation. He is not certain how long he will need to do this.

He is in the Toms River NJ area and, ideally, would like for the piano to be between the Philadelphia and New York metro areas.

For more information, PM me please.

Wow, what an opportunity for a lucky person! If I lived in that region, I'd be all over this!

Does the offer include helicopter delivery? I live in a small apartment on the 29th floor, and the elevator could barely fit my Mason BB(they had to take the lid off to squeeze it in).

Should be roughly 42 days walking distance; but that should be no surprise, since that is the answer to life, the universe and everything.

If I start now tearing down the walls of our living room and building an extension, I wonder whether I can make it in time to accommodate this.

If you can afford to do that you can afford to buy it probably

I think just like touch and tone are no separable, space and piano aren't either.

It is a sad thought that I cannot afford an Imperial after all.

Since I live 10 minutes from Toms River and work there, my Baldwin SF-10 wouldn't mind the company. Plus my tech is Cunningham approved.

It is a joke. He means he can't even afford a free Bose.

I live exactly halfway between Philadelphia and NY, and boy is that a good offer, the problem is, isn't that piano nearly 10 feet long? I doubt it could fit in my house.


I now have a signature.

Yes you can. You just need to work out what you can't fit as a result of having the piano there cool

Exactly! Sofa and loveseats would be gone in an instant-hello Bösendorfer Imperial laugh
