Finally, a rare sighting of the elusive "cabinet grand"?

Actually, the Hardman Grand Piano on that Craigslist page would be a good deal for a spectacular piano.

I saw that one! the 1895? I'm not very familiar with the brand but that seems a tad aged, LOL. grin The music desk is pretty!

Unceremoniously tossed to the curb, LOL! WHO DOES THIS??? Surely they can't expect the trash collectors to take this??

Isn't that the truth thumb

I thank God I’m not the budding musician that has to practice on that! And so many PW members scoff at Asian pianos. We just don’t appreciate how fortunate/blessed/lucky we truly are.

As my daughters would say, I know, right?

Do they really think someone is going to spot and pick up a piano on the curb? laugh ha
"Let me stop, grab it, and throw it in the back of my minivan!"

My guess is that you are right about the trash collectors! It's probably been out there a while already, and the owner has realized the trash service will not take it. They are trying to entice someone into coming to take it away. thumb

Anyway, if it's at all serviceable, it's sad to see it literally kicked to the curb. frown

That's what I was thinking, as well. And honestly, if it was ever playable, I doubt it would be now, since it's been cow-tipped. I can't imagine whoever didn't this got at least 4 friends together and gently lowered it onto its back. 😂😂😂

Yeah -- to me, good condition would imply right side up and in the garage, not outside.... ;-)
Posted By: Retsacnal Re: Craigslist. Why????? - 01/16/19 03:55 PM
I think covered porch is "good condition," and garage would be "great condition!"

?!?!?!

Apparently some college throws a piano off the roof of a building each year (MIT?). Personally I think it's sacrilegious.

Not a grand piano, but a ground piano.

I'd rather see Punkin' Chunkin' than Piano Chunkin'!

But I'm mostly joking above, although it is sad to see any piano die... frown
Posted By: Lady Bird Re: Craigslist. Why????? - 01/17/19 06:44 AM
I must say it is awful to see that piano lying like that on the pavement.It is like seeing a homeless person who nobody
cares about .
Posted By: j&j Re: Craigslist. Why????? - 01/17/19 03:08 PM
It brings to the surface a question we Piano hobbyists and piano lovers have to think about. What will happen to our beloved pianos when we move on to the “big recital in the sky”. Will the person who gets our piano take care of it and maintain it or will it sit unused, out of tune, pushed out to the garage, or worse yet the driveway waiting for someone to haul it away. Also an acoustic piano takes quite a bit of natural resources to build but I don’t know how much can be reused or recycled. It’s horrible to think of my beloved piano in broken pieces in some landfill. Ugggghhh!
My grand nephew is taking piano lessons. Maybe he’ll take my piano 🤔

You know, I've seen many an "upright grand", but this is the first "horizontal upright" I've seen.

Sounds fun but I'm too busy cow-tipping. 😂😂😂

Used pianos are only ever sold as perfect...or...just needs tuning.
