Look what has come to live in my home studio! I've been casually looking for a better piano to teach and practice on. The more I work on my Grade 10 repertoire, the more I realize how important it is to have a really good instrument. Not to be down on my other piano, because I loved it, but let's face it- this new one is about 75 years newer than that one. Yeah. Lots of improvements to be had! The old one hardly had any action/response left so when it came to technique it was starting to fail me.
I found this beauty on Kijiji over the weekend, after not looking at ads for 2 weeks. We took a piano expert with us to look at the instrument. The price was so ridiculously low that I figured there must be something wrong with it. But it was quite the opposite! It was the original owner who was selling (because he needed the space) and it has been well taken care of- the inside and out look brand new and are in immaculate condition.
I know you're dying to know what I paid for it, and I'll keep you waiting no longer: $399
Yes, you read it right! Our piano expert said that if he were to sell this in his piano store (that he used to have), it is worth at least $2,500. Did we get a good deal or what?!
Congratulations Leah. Very exciting!
Thanks! I can't believe it's mine- it's definitely the nicest one I've ever had.
Congratulations Leah! So happy for you.:)
Thanks...one step closer to my baby grand, eh? :)
Congratulations, Leah! What a deal! Now just tuck all that savings away toward the piano of your dreams while you enjoy this one! It makes a huge difference when we can play on a piano we enjoy!
Beautiful! What a great find.
Sheryl, yes, it is so much more motivating to practice when you get the expression you want from the instrument. Finding this piano made me realize that my dream of a baby grand may not be so unreachable after all. :)
Bethany, thanks. I'm definitely enjoying it. :)
Wow, Leah! What a great deal and what a beautiful piano!!! Congrats! I can't wait to be a piano owner soon. It'll happen sometime this summer. =)
Joy, I actually thought about you when I bought it- was wondering if you had found yours yet. Looking forward to seeing pics of it when you get it. :)
Congratulations! What a great find!
