    Yeah, it almost likes as if HR Giger designed it! I'll have to hear one live or on a well recorded CD before I can judge the tone more accurately. Something tells me I'm going to prefer a traditional piano, but time will tell.

    Can't comment on the sound from the video, but I think it looks somewhat ugly...

    Well, for $250k, I certainly wouldn't turn one away if sent my way! I'm really curious to hearing this thing live though.

    Peculiar looking in comparison to what we are accustomed to, but appears very functional in it's method to reflect sound in another way than straight down.

    A bit scared about the price tag though - a model D Steinway goes for about $80k; one could have 3 9' grands for the same cost.

    Would also like to hear it in a concert hall.

    please write about the sound if you know the pieces.

    I don't get how you can improve the sound of the piano. You can't make it better. If it sounds different, it's not a piano, it's something else.

    I wouldn't be too surprised if Elton John gets one. After all, Keith Moon had his eye on this style of drumkit until death intervened...

    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).
