In a room 16ft long and 10ft wide, the Essex 155 sounds big for its size. My family has commented on its big sound. Piano tech to come in a few weeks for first tuning.
My purchase for just under 6550pounds was a great buy for me. Not an ebony piano, as choices of other finishes on the piano case are more expensive, in Australia. The company where I purchased my piano no longer will sell steinway and sons pianos, after this companys many decades of selling this piano make, stocking other brands such as kawai and yamaha, and I wonder if the reason is largely due to the popularity of the above mentioned pianos.

Do they get that idea from episodes of 'Eastenders' where everone is fighting or sleeping with each other and totaly dissfunctional?
