I, cannot, believe, that, this, day, is, finally, here! The day when my piano arrives! Well, better said, it already arrived, and that is also why I'm posting about it this late, because I could not stop playing for about four hours! Now I actually see how much I've missed it during the past two years since I gave away my last one. I completely cannot understand how I was capable of giving it away in the first place. From my point of view it has no sense at all. :)
The piano I took is middle class, and I couldn't have chosen any better. While I was weighing my options, in the end I couldn't decide between a Bösendorfer, Steinway, and a Yamaha pianino. Unfortunately, I have to admit that I allowed the prices to lead my path of thinking, and I thought a Steinway would be the best solution. But, ooooh dear, how wrong I was! In the saloon we made a little experiment, and I tried all three of them in a small room, almost the same size like mine, because it was very important to me to get the best musical experience I could even tough my room is very small. I tried the Steinway first because I thought it would win right away, but hell no! The sound was too "tiny", too high pitched, and it felt really horrible. I was so surprised. Then I tried the Yamaha one, and it felt unbelievable. Everything just was exactly how it should be. I couldn't find any "flaws" at all. After that one I got my hands on the Bösendorfer, and it was beautiful! It was just a little too dark and moody for my taste, and that is why I picked the Yamaha one in the end. And I truly couldn't be any happier right now. Happy, happy! This is one more reason that the brand, price and whatsoever are not a guarantee that the product they sell is the best one! Now I was convinced once more. Oh, and I was also thinking to make some video recordings while playing, and share it here and on my youtube channel I made today. We'll see. :)
As you can see in the pictures (even if it's just a little bit), that my room is very, very small. I think it's some 13m2 and I really had to plan everything to the very last detail, since I didn't have the chance to waste any space. But, about that in another entry! :)
Have a nice start into the weekend!
