It's been a while since I've posted on here, but the piano finally arrived yesterday (January 11th) at my local dealer. I was so excited that I went there to see them unload it off the truck, unbox it, and inspect it. After playing on it for a few minutes at the dealer, they loaded it back up and delivered it to my house.
That is all I can say about this piano. I have played my share of pianos (and Steinways specifically) over the years, and I have never personally experienced a piano like this. I have spent a lot of time playing it already, and the piano just keep giving me more of anything I demand out of it. The sound just rolls. The base tone is rich and full, and it's a well-rounded sound that just fills the room but has a punch with the right attack. The treble just...sings. It naturally carries the melodic line with ease. The touch is perfectly balanced, and it's extremely easy to glide.
After 8 months of waiting, I can say it was well worth the wait, and I couldn't be any happier! This piano feels like a rental in my home. It's going to take a while for everything to sink in.
My friend is a videographer, and he tagged along with me the whole day yesterday. He's compiling a video of the whole experience, and I'll post it here when it's completed.
