Sarah, congrats, there is nothing like playing on a nice instrument. I had bought a new YUS5, and it is more piano then I will ever need, I am only a 5th year student. I never regret my purchase even if I am not a really good player. You probably spend more time on your piano than you do driving your car. Sometimes I take a day off from work just to play my piano. People talk about TV shows and I don't watch TV, they say what do you do? I play my piano, it is so much better than TV.

Congratulations and Merry Christmas 🎁🎄! A new piano is a special gift and delight! You will really only get the applause and appreciation for your new piano and your “buying my piano story” from others who love and play piano. They-who-don’t-play often can’t understand the difference between a new, quality, in-tune, piano that can sing and their grandma’s old crappy upright in the basement that hasn’t been serviced since the Johnson administration. Rather than be annoyed at their ignorance, pity them because they don’t know the pure joy of having a beautiful instrument that they can play anytime in their own home.
They-who-don’t-play just wonder why you didn’t get the keyboard on sale at Costco. But we-who-play know and understand and are really happy for you!

If you are like me then I know you cannot stop looking at your new piano. Be patient as it can take months (in my case years) to completely stabilise and it will require several tunings during the first year.

One piece of advice if you piano is like mine and has a High Gloss Black finish. Only use a feather duster to remove dust and use a microfibre cloth with Cory High gloss polish, which you can buy on this site, to remove finger marks.

Enjoy,

Ian

It's great your piano arrived in tune .A friend of mine bought a new Yahama U1 and it arrived straight out of the crate totally atonal ! She complained to the dealer and they came and tuned and prepped the piano .When playing it I noticed some of the upper treble had a metalic sound .I suggested she ask them to do some voicing on the instrument which they did with the next free tuning.Enjoy your piano I am sure it's a lovely instrument.

That`s the spirit and beauty of life. Salute for you and congratulations to Sara for new piano. Enjoy both of you.

When you get a nice piano, it's amazing the difference it makes in ways you never expected. Pedalling and dynamics take on a whole new meaning. Now you can concentrate on making music!
