For 19 years I’ve been playing piano, at my home we had a grand piano and my teacher had one as well so that is what I grew up playing. The only upright that I ever played was the Wurlitzer spinet that was in the chapel at my school because I used to play during hymns and it did sound absolutely terrible but that might have been because it had probably not been tuned since 1975 and I have a distinct memory of being told by my teacher that you can’t play as well or as fast on an upright because of how the hammers and strings are laid out https://mobdro.bio/ https://kodi.bio/. For the last few years I have had a digital piano, a Casio Privia Px-100, it is one of the best digital pianos that I have played, but it isn’t the same and now that I’ve purchased a flat and don’t have to worry about moving for a long while I’d like to purchase a piano. Just looking online I can get a Yamaha U1 or Baldwin Hamilton in good shape for a bit less than half the price of a Yamaha GH1 and a fraction of the cost of a Steinway, Bosendorfer etc. and of course it will take up less space which is something to consider.
I want an instrument that I can keep and enjoy for the rest of my life and I’m willing to pay more and sacrifice space if I need to, but only if it’s worth it to do so. Of course I’ll try different pianos before I buy anything but I would like to hear some opinions anyhow.
