Grab your camera or video recorder. Have some cash ready for tipping delivery crew. Put some champagne or other celebratory drink on ice for later. Clear the path. With many/most new pianos, you’ll get a booklet with care instructions and likely a microfiber cleaning cloth. I keep mine in the piano bench for ready touchups.I celebrate responsibly piano delivery day each year as my piano’s birthday. Congratulations! This is truly exciting! Enjoy!

She has arrived...

You all requested pictures. Not sure how to do that without hosting them somewhere?

That hat has quite the story. My friends mother, who is one of the most wonderful non judgmental Christians I know, takes old VHS pornos out of circulation and crochets them into things. Upon learning of my love of Stevie Nicks, she made me that hat. It’s probably the most commented on thing I own. Then the story just makes it all the better.

Congratulations on your Kawai piano! It looks good in that placement. Just remember to keep any direct sunlight off your piano.
All the best for lots of enjoyment from this lovely piano.
Robert.

Back in the 70s and 80s, recording directly to VHS tape, made it ridiculously easy to film porn at home or small “studio”. Millions of sleazy VHS porno tapes remain when the world moved to digital. TortoiseAvenger’s friend crochets these into decorative items. I think it’s realy cool.
