Uh....because this is the piano forum and not the DP forum?

BTW, here's my recent purchase for my daughter and I. A 1986 Kawai UST-7.

Hello - I've watched the forums for quite a while, but ellykay's question finally got me to register and join the discussions.

When we purchased our home in 2007, we almost immediately fulfilled our goal of purchasing the best piano we could afford for the front room.

My wife is a church musician, and I'm a committed amateur. We played a number of instruments and the right one for us was a three year old Boston GP193.

We have some nice pics of the piano in its setting, but in choosing pictures, I always come back to these:

While it's a bit challenging to practice this way, we think his habit of sitting on our lap during practice time is very sweet!

Best,

Will

The 193 is my favorite Boston grand model. Such a beautiful scale. Warm, full and even! My church purchased one not so long ago.

Are the little speakers on the floor hooked up the Digital? Just curious if this improves the sound? I use the same model (for early morning practice) but sometimes I practice on it during reg hours and I've wondered about hooking up a very small amp to it...

My name is Kris, I am looking for anyone that could help me. I just found a Sterling Derby Conn Co cabinet grand that was on craigslist for free. It is in pretty nice condition minus one scratch on the front, it has a serial number of 16347. How do I go about finding the age of the piano or the history?

Thanks for your time....
p.s. I would love to post a picture but cant for the life of me figure out how....any advice?? Geeze Im needy tonight. LOL
Thanks again!
Kris

Hi Kris welcome to the forum!
Here is a helpful resource:

http://www.bluebookofpianos.com/pianoage.htm#STERLING

Unfortunately it looks like your serial number is one digit shorter than those listed. Maybe someone else can help.

If you do a search for 'post picture' I'm sure you'll find instructions. The procedure has been given in several places none of which I remember off hand unfortunately.

My 1912 New York Steinway & Sons B, lovingly restored in 1985 by A&C. I acquired this piano in 1998 from its sole owner since restoration, a music theory professor at my conservatory - he was moving to NYC and required a smaller instrument!

[Linked Image]

The B is currently located at my home in the United States. I am extremely lucky to have stumbled upon this instrument when I did - it is my absolute grail instrument. It has a heavy, full action, and a lush, warm tone with just the right silver lining.

I moved to Europe a few years ago, ever since which it has been a constant debate in my head as to what to do with my B (I would never, ever consider selling it!). Should I bring it over? If so, when, and what should I do in the interim?

So I bought a Yamaha Clavinova as band-aid solution. It served its purpose well, even if for a bit longer than it should have...

[Linked Image]

...and the time came that I told myself I must finally make a decision. After a few months of continuing debate as to whether to rent or buy (and what - upright or grand), and having visited just about every major London dealer (which my wife graciously tolerated!), I found just the right combination of sound, action, size and price: a new Kawai RX-2.

So last week I took delivery of this beauty:

[Linked Image]

It is obviously a very different instrument from my Steinway, but also quite similar, particularly the warm tone and full action. I consider myself extremely fortunate to be able to have both a vintage instrument as well as a brand new instrument.

Now back to practicing! laugh

Cheers

Nicholas,

You are so fortunate to have those two pianos. The Steinway B is probably my all time favorite piano- I played a couple in Harvard Square at conservatory I attended for a short while.

I also purchased a Kawai RX-2 and often commented that it's darker, mellower tone achieved some of the similar tonal qualities as some Steinways I've played in the past. Different but somehow familiar?

For the price it's very hard to beat the RX series if value is important to you. I also like the Estonias and even came close to trading up to an Estonia 190, but I had a hard time parting with this gem.

Nicholas,

That is a gorgeous Steinway B. Is it a lacquer finish? Looks shiny, but not as shiny as the RX2.

I love the Art Deco details on Steinways of pre-Depression vintage. thumb

These are some instructions for posting your pictures on Piano World.
They will stay here on Piano World for ever if you upload them to Piano World.

First you will have to have pictures in low resolution and smaller size. You can take them in low resolution on your camera, like a cell phone takes. Or better, is to use a picture program to make the pictures from a good camera web friendly. I use PhotoShop, or a cheap program that I have, to resize them into a low resolution, jpg. You will need them in 640 pixel width. Then you can upload them to PW using the uploader with the link below. PW will then email you the location to put in the link, which you find in "Post a Reply",...then "full Reply Form" and then "IMAGE". You can only put six pictures in each reply. Smiles and such count as a picture. Here it is.
http://www.pianoworld.com/Uploads/fileuploader2.html

I have saved this link in my favorites as I don't know how to find this link on Piano World. [Confused] I wish that Frank would make finding this web page much easier.

If this isn't clear enough then ask me again.

O.k. I'll join in then. Here's my 1989 Yamaha U3E. I couldn't fit it into my old place for many years and had to live with a Kawai digital. wow am I glad I've moved and can now have it here. It's a beautiful instrument.

I like the space you have for your piano. It's beautiful! Someday we may get around to remodeling the room, but for now we have this funny green carpet, LOL.

Guess I need to post over in the piano forum to see if anyone can tell me what year mine was built. I'm guessing 1967-1968 based on what I found online elsewhere, but I'm not positive.

Thank you...that room was added on to the house primarily for a piano. I'd been without one since moving out of my parents' house twenty-six years ago!

That Baldwin may be for sale soon. It's a powerful piano and in that room (which is actually softer now than it appears in these photos) it's a bit overpowering and has been hard to voice. It's all original and in lovely shape, but the tech says new hammers would do it nicely.

Unfortunately/fortunately, while "shopping around" comparing pianos mostly for fun, I came upon what is, to me, the finest instrument I've ever played (a 2000 Steinway B) and may end up with it. Strangely, at 6'11", it's a much quieter instrument than the 6'3" Baldwin.

Anyway, the room's big, but not big enough for two pianos, so the Baldwin will have to go...

Same kind of thing happened to me and now I've got a big Bluthner and bigger Bosie. I "solved" the problem my moving the Bluther to my office - at least for now!

I wrote about it here: My New BOSENDORFER Arrives.
