Yes they are! I love my piano. I used to have an upright Story and Clark, but we got a new one last year or so. The only problem is that the black ones are a pain to dust!

Y'all got so nice pianos Smile. What kind is that, Jeli?

Here's a pic of mine from about a year ago, the only sheetmusic I had was the little I had on the piano back then, damn Very Happy.




It looks really nice, has ivory keys and all, about 60 years old. But it plays completely diffirent from any other piano I've played and it has an uberlight touch, which is a pain when I have to play any other piano. But the lightness does really help with practicing touch.

hey An!ma`, is that chair made for piano? I've seen some people use it for competitions, but I never have used one for myself.

My piano is a Pearl River 5'3" baby

That's just a really old, very hard chair, and I do not think it has any purpose. It's not great for playing, because your butt hurts real bad after a while, and you get a very stiff back because it's not at the perfect height.

I've always wanted a *true* piano chair...they look very classy and the hard bottom is actually supposed to help you keep your back straight (provided it's at the proper height; and they're usually adjustable).

Mine's not adjustable, and that's one of the annoying things about it :/. *true* piano chairs are so damn expensive. My teacher has one, I love it.

Yeah, I know...if they weren't so expensive I'd have one by now!! The cheapest adjustable one I've seen is $300USD, and the nicer ones start at around $500. The only time I've used one is at the local Seinway dealer and it wasn't adjustable...not only that, it was way too high (my knees basically hit the underside) so not worth it at all. But it really *looked* cool!

I have a Yamaha U1, of which all of you are familiar with.

I use an Eugen Balz "Klavier stuhl" which is about 650 euros, or about $900.

I think it is the best investment you can do.

actually, it's my friend's Rolling Eyes
it sux though because nobody in her family plays! Evil or Very Mad

and actually, it's not that great a Steinway (New York Hamburg; I think she said either a model L or M, but I think L..), especially thanks to the tile floor >_o

Chozart, you implied that the M is "not that great a Steinway"????




If it weren't for your recent praise for Haydn, that sort of speech would warrant an indefinite silent-treatment period. You're lucky.




And, btw, from the looks of it the piano is an L. My old teacher had two of them side by side in his studio, and I'm *pretty* sure that's what that one is. I never got that overhead view though...
