Welp... There goes that moving company's Yelp rating...
Probably not. More likely to have to do with the clarity of attack and note separation. For a long time, Yamaha grands have been more popular with jazz pianists for just this reason.
Yeah I am curious about the specifics of how this occurred.
A lot can go wrong moving a piano especially if the people are not specifically piano movers but just "movers". Sure, we can move your piano, they will say but when it comes to doing the real job there are skills and tools that set piano movers apart. This is the reason why when I move I hire 2 companies, one to move furniture and one to move my piano.
My last move they scratched the bench adjustment knob and because as piano movers they had a relationship with the manufacturer they were able to find an exact replacement.
Oof. That had to hurt to hear "sorry, your number one guitar fell down a flight of stairs and the neck snapped off". Painful.
Piano: "Sorry lady, the piano fell down a flight of stairs, killed 4 people and smashed through a window landing on a new Cadillac down in the parking garage and created the worst sounding chord ever played."
came to post: was hoping for pics of the smashed piano
Oh god, I love that stupid assed show. Against every fiber in my body I love it!
That's very cool, tho I don't get the music with the video!
And, since I can't resist - I guess these guys were using Pianolift 1
I thought I was the only one.
I understand the 4th pedal was that smooth dumble tonz
Solo boost, to cut through the mix.
That's not entirely true. In 1970, Fazioli introduced three piece frames with "polutes"* and was roundly criticized by the Fazioli fanbois. Their major complaint was that was not how he made them in 1959, so he went back to using the easier to break frames by 1979-1980 or so.
*Just like a volute on a guitar but for piano frames instead.
It actually releases the latch that allows you breakdown and fold the piano for easy transport.
What I was going to say. Pachyderm near Minneapolis had one of the best sounding piano recording rooms I've heard of-complex with baffles in a ceiling that wasn't flat, but it couldn't have cost more than $50-75k to install. WAY cheaper than replacing the piano. A couple of vintage U67s, some Schoeps, maybe an RCA44 ribbon, nice Neve preamps-your still WELL under the cost of replacing the piano!
I didn't see that they were moving it for recording. It said she had just finished recording on a different piano when the movers came in and told her they dropped it. I don't think the article stated why she was moving it unless I missed it.
You beat me to this.
Here's the nuggets:
... and later:
Sounds like they moved it there for recording, and were moving it back home when the drop happened.
BBC is reporting the fourth pedal was a volume-reduction thing.
Reminds me of when I sat on that Stradivarius.
