Put many hours on this piano already, happy with it!

And, in case anyone is interested, here was a discussion thread, before it arrived:

OK, back to playing.

We would really love to hear it - could you post up a recording?

Congratulations!

Thanks!! and sure, yes, I can do that. (apologies but probably not soon, life has been real busy lately)

And actually... being a bit of a "nerd", hence the STEM in display name, so, after receiving I recorded ringdowns and used software I've written to compare the results. I'm thinking to upload this piano onto my Nord.

Just got it tuned so here is a recording I made yesterday, and added running commentary. Note that I asked for the piano to be voiced on the quiet side and it is in a very quiet room, lots of carpet and soft surfaces. But I like it!

Thanks for taking a moment to do that for us-- no need to apologize for the little things that happened in the recording (but a little humility is always appreciated)! Very American sounding piano, indeed. Is the bass really that prominent, or is that an effect of the recording/equipment? Looks nice, too. I also enjoyed the process of opening the piano as the beginning of the video. Is something a little askew with the block dampers in the treble as we look down the tail of the piano in the opening shots, or is that just an optical illusion due to the camera?

Thanks everyone!

And, good catch on the damper. The felt on F#5 is angled a bit. The camera is causing weird effects. I reshot the lid opening because when I was looking at the first recording I noticed a significant "scratch" across the piano. I checked the piano carefully and realized it was an illusion, maybe due to camera data compression. Moved the camera a bit and it was gone smile

Regarding the bass, yes I can get it to be strong. But also I've found them fairly easy to control.

You may find the 5/3 is easier in the bit you found difficult rather than 5/4.

Beautiful piano! Thanks for sharing your treasure with us.


I wish I lived in a big enough place for house concerts (featuring someone else playing) on "Serena," my Estonia L168. I may have to move! Meanwhile I recently acquired a Kawai ES110 for late-night practice sessions.

Welcome to the S&S B club. I've watch many Lindeblad videos and wondered about them, so I'm glad to hear you are happy with your purchase. My B is voiced a little brighter than yours (the way I like it), but I hear so many tonal similarities between your B and mine.

Lovely playing. The piano sounds wonderful. BTW, what mics are you using?

The microphones are AKG C414 XLS. They work pretty well for me but if a car drives by, the house creaks, a butterfly lands,...... they pick it up!

.well, not always the butterfly smile

Congrats ! I love the tone, very nice ! I like "quiet" and "mellow/dark". May you have as much inspiration through the years as I've had with mine.

I was at Pierre's shop last week playing a newer Fazioli 212. Liked it a lot but when I get home and play mine, and hear a nice NY B, there's that reinforcement of where my tonal preference is. wink

The 414s are excellent, I was very close to buying a pair but then chose the DPA 4011s on advice from Rich Breen, the venerable LA engineer.

Late to the party to hear the demo but I noticed your YouTube video is private. Any chance I could still listen to it?
