]Hi Ed McMorrow,
Thanks for your professional comments! Have you had issues in tuning this model before? Should I stay away from this piano? Thanks
Anana123, have you seen and played the piano you are asking about? If so, are the keys stiff and sluggish to start with and then the action just freezes up altogether after playing a short time as Ed states?
It seems to me that Ed is lumping all Samick made pianos from this era into one barrel. Also, with all due respect to Ed, if you go back and read his many threads here, in his opinion, as a general rule, every acoustic piano ever manufactured by any manufacturer is plagued with problems from the factory and the only way to remedy the issues is for him to rebuild it to his own specs. Or at least that is the way I interpret his comments here over and over again. And, I'm not being critical of Ed here; I'm sure he is very good at his craft... this is just the way I interpret things that Ed says here.
Again, if you are interested in the piano, find the best piano technician in your area and pay them $100 or so to inspect the piano for you. Ed has not seen or heard or laid hands on the piano you are considering and seems to be condemning it based on its basic DNA.
For the record, I am not a pro. I'm just a dabbler. But I hate to see new members go away more confused than when they came here...
Maybe some of the other pros can chime in and corroborate what Ed had to say about Samick made pianos.
