Hello, does anyone know if this is a good piano?
Chickering grand 5.6 ft by baldwin made in Us- year 1996
The local store priced it at 9000 cad. Owned by a local single owner. I have played it but I am not so sure. It seems pretty good but at one point at I was playing fast, one of they key didn’t come up fast enough for me to play of again. Is this bad?

Another one is Irmler F175E made in Poland. Year 2015. Priced at 25000 cad. I haven’t tried this. It’s an hour drive away. The owner said it was never played.

Thank you!

Posting in the FAQ section and the My New Piano section will not likely get your question answered. You should post on ‘tuners and Tech Firum and Piano Forum (main part not FAQ)

Hope you get some help!

Hello, Metta. You are still not posting your question in the piano forum. I'll help you.

The forum here, where we are now, is for post frequently asked questions from members.

You need to look a little further down on the "Piano Forum" post page.

If you go here... http://forum.pianoworld.com/ubbthreads.php/forums/1/1/piano-forum.html the first two forums at the top of the page are the "Frequently asked questions" forum, and the second is the "Share your story" forum. You want to go down to the third forum, which the primary "Piano Forum".

It is a little confusing the way it is set up.

I hope this helps! smile
