    I felt like making a poll, and I tried to include as many as I could.
    I voted too, for Böse.

    Edit: OMG! I forgot to include...Fazioli! Definitely should have added it in the place of some others.

    My family just got a very nice Everett with real ebony keys. I like it a lot, but I don&#39;t have much piano playing experience, so I don&#39;t know any of the ones above. Two or three of the keys sort of stick, not that much. How would one go about fixing that?

    Hmmm... I don&#39;t know one brand apart from another. If I heard them though, (or especially played on them) I would probably form a decided opinion on the matter. :P But I haven&#39;t--I mean haven&#39;t known what is what.

    Ya, it&#39;s a Fazioli. I put it on after realizing I forgot to put Fazioli on the list. Should have put Falcone on there too. Along with a "I don&#39;t know", but it would probably get the most votes. We shall see.

    Falcone i don&#39;t know the tone either . There&#39;s another problem: playing or hearing live or only from CD, that has a big influence to your decision. And actually i didn&#39;t hear many of this list live.

    In most recordings you&#39;re hearing a Steinway, so I guess if you want to hear a Steinway all you have to do is pop in a CD.

    Wink

    I am definitely a boesie fan

    I like steinways, aber, I don&#39;t love them, there is a subtle difference there

    never liked faziolis much (though I never heard one). I guess I just would rather drive a royce than a ferrari (or a corvette in the case of steinways I suppose)

    Question

    by the way, heard a samick a week ago on TV.

    I don&#39;t know whose fault it is, but it was the most horrible piano sound I ever heard :blink:

    Yikes&#33; I can&#39;t imagine Young Chang up there on the list&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33; It&#39;s one of the worst pianos I&#39;ve ever played&#33; Have u guys attemped one b4?
    U play p...okay its soft...u play mp...okay it&#39;s slightly louder... u play mf, then u plau f , then ff... OMG, what&#39;s the difference? It&#39;s got to be the worst piano in tonal aspect and touch sensitivity. And i feel that Young Chang is really retarded in touch and has a really shallow pedal as well. I really don&#39;t like the hammer work inside, it simply isn&#39;t crisp nor clean enough.
