I love this! So much music out of that tiny little keyboard. smile
Posted By: ebonykawai Re: The piano I REALLY want - 07/11/19 01:38 PM
I just adore this little sound, it's so satisfying somehow.
Posted By: Rickster Re: The piano I REALLY want - 07/11/19 01:45 PM
Nice!

I wonder how the bigger piano underneath sounds; and it's a white one too... smile

Alas, ebony polish.

Does Kawai actually make that? It's surprisingly expensive.

They seem to come right from Japan, so I'm assuming it's a distinct possibility. I'll have to dig a little more.....

They are on ebay. For some reason, I like the light wood finish.

Alternatively, there are candidates for rebuilding from the golden era of the toy pianoforte. 😁

Remember when you were little and if you were good at the doctor or the dentist you got a treat or you got to pick a prize from the prize box?

I was good at the doctor.

I like the light wood finish, too. It's too bad these don't come in Cracker Jack, lol. 😊❤️

I’m holding out for the working LEGO piano model. There should be an update in the fall about possible production
BTW; it takes 1800 Legos 🙀

I'm trying to remember, on the B-52s first album, which song was it that used a toy piano? Credited on the cover, too--- the only time I've ever seen that. Was it "Dance This Mess Around?"

Yes.
This article describes the toy piano as "surprisingly haunting."

Yann Tiersen uses toy pianos a lot on his albums.

Here is an example:

I'm going to have to work out space on a table. Kneeling like Yann does in that video isn't going to work for me.
Posted By: malkin Re: The piano I REALLY want - 07/17/19 06:30 PM
Hmmm. Shipping is from Poste Italiane which doesn't sound exactly Japanese to me.

Does a real size instrument like this exist?

I think it doesn't, but.. why not? Some kind of xylophone instead of strings, put dampers in it like a piano, and you would have a unique instrument!

Do you mean a tiny piano with a normal piano action?
Or a normal sized grand with a xylophone inside?

That first option would take some true nano engineering, and would be pretty useless i think. grin

I ment the second option.

I remember this from years ago:

Posted By: U3piano Re: The piano I REALLY want - 07/17/19 11:02 PM
Wow!

Perfect if you don't have the space for an upright?

"Keyboard xylophone"
https://antiquitymusic.com/keyboard-xylophone

And this "Xylano"
https://www.instructables.com/id/Xylano-Piano-Meets-Xylophone/


Is it obvious that I am off my feet (mainly the left one) with a lot of time on my hands?
Posted By: malkin Re: The piano I REALLY want - 07/18/19 01:09 AM
Or a celesta?!

I don't know, I could see someone incorporating it into a tiny cooking or baking-a-cake show! 😂😂😂

Our tiny tinkle piano showed up ahead of schedule and does not disappoint!

The Playable LEGO piano has been approved for production and will have 2798 pieces!

We’re going to need a thread when we all build one.

See: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/a4e4413f-8488-4551-ac9d-9e7f8c35154e

I can’t wait to order one.

I wouldn't call it playable, with a stool like that! cry

Lego is pretty neat, how about this. It's no piano, but impressive nonetheless:
