MrSkygod,
I just listened to some of your songs on soundclick and am wondering which piano you played for the recordings. Was that the ES?

Thanks

Leob

The earliest songs used the ES grand piano which I like very much. Now I use either my Baldwin baby grand or a Roland TTS-1 which I think sounds better than the ES in many ways.

Still think the Korg Oasys has the best electronic piano on the planet but it's costs as much as a decent accoustic grand.

The accoustic is has better options as far a micing goes as well as more stereo options with good mics.

Good to hear from you Leo.

Guess I bought mine at a bargain. I was in shock when I priced a newer one. I've been drooling over a certain Kawai but that ain't gonna happen. Even a full size Yamaha grand is around $20 to $30 grand now. Oddly one of the best sounding pianos I ever played was an old Yamaha upright grand at the cancer hospital chapel where I "borrow" a B3 from time to time. They recently replaced the sweet sounding upright with a Chinese grand so the pianist could see the congregation over the instrument. The decrease in sound quality is blatent in the confines of the curved architecture of the wonderful accoustic envirionment there.

Remember how you would dream as a piano player...............?
One day I want to play a Boesendoerfer, Steinweg................just once I want to play them.
Then Balwin improved drastically...............then Yamaha was on the market...........excellent grand piano...never matched the Steinway but always was darn close.

Yamaha even introduced the "glass" piano..........lots of mics and mixing was involved.

I love the feel and the sound of the Baldwin.It is still affordable and it still sounds very well........just wished I had one <s>
The full size Yamaha I love to own...............is 40k+................so............I better buy a VW instead

Kinda hard to part with that kind of money. But a good piano , properly cared for will easily last 100 years. Unlike the VW. :lol:

I drove a 1600cc super beetle over 250,000 miles until the body looked like the moon after surviving several N.Central Texas grapefruit sized hailstorms. I was a freight dog then and my flight pay didn't allow anything more exotic. Swore I'ld never have another one after paying my dues in Old Blue all those years.

I don't know what heating equipment Bugs were stocked with in warmer climates, but here in snow country a good party topic, surely leading to several anecdotes, would be to inquire about people's experiences with the VW gasoline powered heater. Most stories involve black smoke in some way.

My VW had two flaps installed that were attached to this steel wires and they again were attached to two levers in the middle bottom console. If you were lucky you had heat. Cold winters.................you better dressed for it.

I bought a 1969 Beetle in pristine condition while in california. It was from second owner and their "3rd car" so they seldom drove it. Brought it out to NY in 1990 inside a 24' Ryder van. It's been out in the weather several years (not all, some storage) and paint has faded and some surface only.

Always wanted to do "full restore" but never had money. Now we're want to sell it for $ to remodel kitchen. Worth thousands to a good collector.

also, it was re upholsered by one of the Hillside Strangers in LA two weeks before he was caught!
