You couldn't possibly be more wrong. Period.
But you got to show off that you can Google piano manufacturers' names. I can't
remember the last time I was this impressed.
Thanks for sharing.

No, you couldn't possibly be more wrong. My post a JOKE! You of all
people I thought would recognize that.
And for the record, I Googled nothing. I've played every one of the
pianos named. I'm torn between the power of the NY Steinway and the
nuance of the Hamburg. Different pieces play better on different
pianos. And when budget/living space permit, I'll have a NY Model B.
Sorry, I've never even seen one in the flesh, as it were. Heck, I'm not
even a piano player.
Taking things further away from the OP, I did play a stunning parlor-sized
guitar last week. Built by Oskar Graf in Clarendon, ON, it was *wonderful*.
It was also worth on the order of $7000, I think. And worth it.
Sorry.. you caught me between Coffee #1 and Coffee #2.
YES!.. I do see the wry tongue-in-cheek now... my apologies.
But look what you started...lol.. Fazioli????
I know very little about pianos. I was blown away by Tori Amos doing her thing
with a Bosendorfer and immediately noticed the awesome power of the instrument.
I had been exposed to the beauty of the craftsmanship before at a Swiss hotel
and it left quite an impression on me as a kid.
It's like they say in the NBA...no autopsy, no foul.
A lot of the power from that Bosendorfer, depending on the size/model,
could have come from the fact that they have several "extra" keys on
the bass end...instead of the normal 88 keys, they have 90-some-odd.
Supposed to give the instrument extra resonance.
Truly an awesome instrument.
Periodically, when I want to see what the high-water mark of
woodworking is, I look inside my piano at the action. Talk about
precision. And mine's a POS compared to the afore-mentioned models...
p.s. For the record, I wrote my original post before I even had coffee
# 1...re-reading it under the sunny haze of Starbucks # 3, I can see
where it could easily have been mistaken as serious...my bad. Lesson
learned...NEVER post to the wreck until I'm at least partway through
coffee # 2.
I knew a fellow once who always signed up for the adult ed woodshop class at
his local high school. He said it gave him guaranteed time in the shop each
week, plus it gave him access to all these BIG tools he didn't have room for
and probably couldn't afford even if he did have room.
