Dear Wry Guy,
what you say is absolutely right and this is actually the case : )
But it is also true that I have always played half-destroyed piano in my life.
2 times I have left, travelling on my own, hunting random broken pianos in Europe.
I have always felt happy to spot a dusty , abandoned piano in a pub and give it some life back.
Thing is the technician is kind of ignoring me 'cause he is quite busy, but I need one now.
I have been searching for a piano since 1 year now
I don't have much money, so I can't afford both, nor I can afford to spend more than 200e to fix the RIPPEN.
I could get the WEINBACH only because my cousin would let me pay something, month by month.
I am interested in the RIPPEN but I have noticed it has quite a few things to get fixed and I am also afraid of the hammers....They look pretty consumed.
Off course if the technician will be available, I will have a lucid response about the RIPPEN, but until then I just cannot decide really what's better for me.
I truly haven't much experience about objectively good pianos....I mean I have played them but never had one in my room, never got to know them very well.
Also I don't want to end up with a nice old piano, but spending too much money to fix it and then regret the choice I have made.
I would like to see some more feedback about the 2 pianos and I hope the technician will come with me soon to check the RIPPEN.
Thank you all for your time anyway and thanks for reading my thoughts lads.
I have learnt many things on this website and I really find it useful, even just to share some thoughts
