Hmm. I said I had a grand, but apparently I have a baby grand! 5'8"

I love that the same percentage that are satisfied with their pianos want a new piano someday (at least when I did the poll).

This is an interesting poll.
I'm surprised so many people have grand pianos. I thought it would be the uprights.

Thanks for putting this up Frank.

Right now I only have a digital piano. The poll did not allow me to respond that I do not ever get it tuned. Do digital pianos have to be tuned? (Just kidding).

So I have a living room grand? Here I've been calling it a parlour grand. I thought there were just four categories: concert grand, grand, parlour grand, and baby grand.

Just lurking..... interesting....

I have a digital and an old (50/60 year old acoustic upright, no name, musty smell, needs a tuning... but I love it because it was given by my Dad.

The Tuning questions was a little tough. I have a digital so I had to answer, "It Needs to be Tuned?"

I would think that an electronic piano would need tuning, mine do. Warm up the sounds by putting a few cents+ here and there for more richness. Would that be classed as a tuning??

I'm confused about polls. I don't see a FAQ that answers my questions. I hope that someone will see this post and help me out with some answers.

1. How can you tell if a poll is open or closed?

2. If a poll is closed, but you did not participate in the poll, can you see the results? If so, how?



Thanks.
Mary

Uh-huh. I have to keep mine not only in good relative tune, but also at 440 because I play in chamber ensembles, and my boyfriend is a professional violinist who wants to work repertoire with me, so the pair/groups rehearse at my house (none of them has a decent piano, much less one that's well maintained). So, I have mine tuned at least twice a year.

I don't see a poll(!?) - but mine is a 2 years old Yamaha digital grand piano. :)


Bought an electric piano (Yamaha NP31) as a retirement project.
