New Piano

well not so new. Made in Japan in 1976, it's a Yamaha U1. The U1's (and all Yamahas products) from that era I understand are highly regarded. This was a time in Yamahas history that the aim for the highest quality superceded getting product out at the lowest cost. The previous owner, a professional pianist and composer, purchased it in 2004, so he could still write and play when away from his grand piano.

Without knowing a lot about what to look for in a good second hand piano, I took the risk and purchased it based mainly on the back story and the fact that it was perfectly in tune, according to an app on my iPad. And it sounded good.

So here is a pic.
