heh those are some great uses for violins! I prefer violas and pianos over them, though, because of the extra storage space. ;-)

btw, 900 posts!!!! lol

geez, 900 posts.... YOU HAVE NO LIFE!!!!

I just broke the G string of my violin on sunday...(I was trying to tune it but ended up overwinding it...)then, I cut my finger when 'examining' the remaining. Beside that ,my piano started to lose its voice because of the sudden cooling of weather. what a sensitive .....crap

Hamburg Steinway O, 1935. Complete acoustically restaured in 2004.

It has as strange particularity. It is about 8cm wider (not longer) than the standard. About 4cm on each side right and left. That means the complete frame, keyboard flap, score stand and so on, all is wider. Reason could not be told from Steinway, no special notations about that. Must be a test piano, so I have a really unique piano! The restaurator told me he found no sound difference compared to other restaured Steinway "O" from that period. Very strange!


Here you see a picture of that:

Thank you!
Although, when I listen to some recordings in the piano society forum, there are sooooo strong recordings, mine are more on the lower quality part of that site...

I don't say it's not important,i just say it's not important when you want to start but you have to work on speed step by step and this may take long 8)time

Tetsch & May
upright piano.

Not a very nice one, not very easy to play, but sound not bad. Probably my father is going to buy me a grand piano soon :D.
