I thought it was excellent. The 'sticky out bits' were very impressive.I wouldn't be at all surprised if some potential purchasers ask whether the 'model' is included in the price.
p.s. in the past when central heating wasn't common, how did Harpsichords not break strings and stay in tune?
Aira decided that she needed more expertise and so her sister Thera flew in from the JiaYi School of Music in Dalian, China . . . (I have been smitten not just by her musical training there, of course, but by her superb hands as well as her superdooper skeleton which gives her such facility to pose and position so naturally . . )She sat down at the instrument to test the action and found it nice and lightShe still found the stool a bit highThen she provided her expertise on the technicalities, as Chinese piano makers are now renownedfinding a couple of limited splits in the soundboardand a place where one of the bridges is rolling and really needs to be straightend and reaffixed down to the soundboardand as a result one string that is snagging on another bridgepinOn the top lid some furniture restoration is needed - but this is a vintage instrument - who wants their antiques to look brand new?So those are the defects,but the sound is FANTASTIC . . . so much so that it really made her want to dance . . . showing off her mid-chest body joint which allows her to bend and turn so naturally, just like a ballet dancer
