Hello all, I create this topic to further my knowledge on the piano. I come to all of you for teachings and words of wisdom. So let me begin: Obviously, I, being a student, cannot afford a new piano. I would love to buy a nice grand. But that dream will never come true. Therefore, the used piano market is where I will be looking (or starting to look, and save money for). Could you please give me a checklist, so to speak, of the things I need to look for and notice when inspecting a potential (new for me) used piano? How should I inspect the physical condition of the visible parts, and those inside the piano? Generally speaking I believe my first real piano will be an upright. Thank you kindly, I hope this made sense. -THE juuf edit: Not only do I do this on my behalf, I believe that having a thread on piano inspection for all members of PS to use is a great thing to have. Even if they are inspecting their own piano. Thanks once again.
