Hello all

I just want to share some pictures of my new Bechstein A208. I got this piano after several months of exhausting searching. I started a few threads in here and got amazing feedback. For background history about my search, the thread links are below:

I purchased the instrument from Pianomart.com. The asking price was 28.5K and I got it for 23K. I used the Safe Purchasing Escrow system from the site and it worked wonderfully. I know it was a gamble to buy a piano from the internet without playing it, but I did my diligence and I sent a technician to evaluate it. My piano technician came by this week to tune it and he was utterly impressed by the instrument. I honestly can't stop playing it. It is just marvelous! The action is very responsive and the sound is just gorgeous. If this is the B-line from Bechstein, I honestly can't even imagine how wonderful the A-line would play/sound like. I am very happy with it. Thank you all for your valuable opinions.

Congratulations! That's awesome. I'm so glad to hear that a long distance, over-the-internet purchase worked out for you. I don't know if I would have the never to take that risk. ;-)
