    Cripes, looks like a piece of dental equipment. The bench looks ready to swallow you up any moment.

    My manners prevent me from telling you what I thnk it looks like. :roll:

    Only new management would allow such distinguished names as Shimmel and Bosendorfer to make such ... "instruments."

    It makes me feel the exact same way as when I first learned Porshe was making an SUV. WHAT! :evil:

    It does sort of look like a tooth. Eddy, does your unmentionable item vibrate perhaps? No....don't tell me...I'm too delicate! :lol:
    But I would not turn down a Porshe SUV if someone wanted to give me one. Wonder if Porshe has designed a grand piano like Audi did (another ugly piano a few posts up from here)?

    Perhaps I have a problem, but if the sound is quality, the look is not a concern. : :?

    It's monstrously ugly yet makes a spectacular statement about bad taste..

    Looks are most definitely a concern! Anyone playing this horribly ugly piano would look like a fool and not be taken seriously. However, the other way around - ugly person playing nice-looking piano - is just fine! :lol:

    I'm afraid to play this piano. It might turn into Optimus Prime. :lol:

    Ah, a pedal piano. Schumann wrote some music for one. It is actually a similar configuration to a pedal harpsichor.

    It's not really 'ugly', but I'm not sure I could play this piano. I think it would give me a headache. Or maybe want to play lots of jungle music... :roll: :lol:

    To play any serious music on this "zebra" would be a crime! I'm ashamed it's a Baldwin. :(

    I used to be working on a piece called Zebra Stripes :!:
    Well, planning to work on it, anyway. Never quite got into it.

    57, actually. And it's a damn hard piece by the novelty composer Lothar Perl. I was working on 3 or 4 pieces by him but got distracted as usual.
