I'm been hunting for a real piano for like forever (or a year) and stalking this forums at the same time. There was always someone asking the same question I wanted to ask and answers that are not trolling, until now.
This past weekend, I found this beautiful baby grand for sale on facebook at unbelievably affordable price. She was asking for 3200 but would sell for 2600. She showed me the message of another guy that was coming to pick it up for 2600 but got killed in a car accident on the way.
I went ahead and look at it. It is looking like new inside out but sounds...not so good. But still way better than those old upright people are asking for a few hundreds but should just go to the fireplace. The Russian lady said it was purchased new for 11k 10 years ago at a piano show from a company call East Coast Piano. The piano has marking indicating it is made in Russian, a Maddision brand (No double d is not a typo.) Said it was played by her kid at 6 lessons, then sit around looking nice for 10 years.

Does anyone here have any experience with this brand? I don't think they still exist. Unless nowadays there are piano manufacturers that make expensive piano but don't bother to have a website. Would this be one of those "prototype" that has little worth as a musical instrument? or could this be a steal?
Any input/advance much appreciated!
