Sauter upright. It's not easy to play, but gives a nice sound :)

I own a Baldwin spinet piano, which is actually my mother's, but I'm saving up money to buy a Bechstein Grand Piano.

The piano I own is just like an upright, but even smaller. It's very old, inscribed 1880.

I own an old 1912 Steinway upright (family tradition thing) and a Sherlock-Manning upright (Canadian). It's not bad actually, nice touch, pretty good sound.

NY Steinway M from 2002, I think.
