Amazing piano I discovered at DC Pianos.. Sizing down to only keeping one grand (Steinway) and one vertical (The Kawai).. Small apt. almost impossible to keep two grands. and an elliptical. Should have piano delivered in a week. Will film its arrival!

Yes the action is exquisite.. (Kawai 300) Very smooth, responsive, and the piano is well voiced.

Congratulations! I’m looking for an upright now too and that one is on the top of my to try list! Although a Steinway M would be certainly not be turned away if it showed up at my door. Lol Enjoy them both!!

I am surprised you are even able to have a piano in an apartment, your neighbors don't complained besides/ above or beneath your place?

Congratulations on the new Kawai K 300, shirlkirsten!

I was just wondering, and don't mean to impose, but what did you decide to do with the newer Baldwin grand you were having issues with?

All the best!

I hadn't tried a Kawai upright for some time, but recently sat down at a K300 and really enjoyed the experience.
I'm certain you will treasure your 'twins', and I trust that the Kawai will not develop an inferiority complex alongside it's sibling. wink
I look forward to sharing it's arrival!

Congratulations Shirley and I hope you enjoy it.

How about a review of how your Baldwin grand has performed for you since you've had it?

With mutual tolerance and respect, it is possible. I have an upright on my downstairs neighbor’s head and I thought it would be a problem but my neighbors are a guitar/vocal duo and so I hear his jazz guitar and singing. It’s fine. Neither of us play outside of quiet hours. Lots of New Yorkers own acoustic pianos in their apartments. There are far worse noises than piano playing, jackhammering for one, car alarms for another.
