A Bosendorfer upright if I found a really nice sounding one - we haven't got room for a grand unless we ate off it or slept on it!
I play for my own amazement... :piano;

I'd commission something full of bells and wells and gadgets, like a built in harmonica or a bass drum operated with the left foot (I bet some Beethoven with added kick drum could be good fun)
Yamaha Pianos for sale (usually 50+ in stock)
email markgoodwinpianos@gmail.com with any Yamaha, Kawai, Bechstein or Steinway questions :)

I tune a 1700s one with bells and a drum. But I'm not allowed to use the drum pedal because it makes the dog go loopy.

Haha, that's brilliant. I didn't imagine for a second that something like that already existed! :)

'Men, Women and Pianos' is an excellent readable book. It's by a yank and published by Dover (she said, accurately... :mrgreen: )

Out of stock on Amazon. Well the new one is anyway.
Cheapest used one in the UK is £32.
Is it worth paying that much for it do you think?
