I don’t think I’m going to need a piano fort eh! :)
This place looks like a bombs hit it, I just went into the kitchen and found my partner throwing some of my stuff out! :shocked: and now she wants me to get rid of my big KEF's!
All of my recording stuff is going in the basement studio now, the only thing that will be left in the live room is the piano.

They look very professional, lots of trolleys and stuff.

Busy day today, piano gone, wiring up basement studio.
Found power supply for disco ball, my partner outside going through bins in the freezing cold, it got thrown away accidentally :roll:
The disco ball is going in one of the underground arches in the studio, gives a lovely enticing distant ballroom effect.

Update!
It’s in the workshop, I just called them, no thanks to Hugh! :D
Good news too, I’m second in the queu, and it looks like the action supports won’t need renewing, they are £200 each, and there are five of them!

Like Phoebe’s SmellyCat song, that joke works on so many levels.

Proper Laugh Out Loud.

Thanks, Drew :bouncy:

How did you manage to find the parts? I've just been told my Bluthner, c. 1910, can't be repaired as springs are no longer replaceable.

Hello JSC, welcome to the forum :-)

I noticed you'd posted the same question on the other thread regarding the piano. Please could you restrict your query to a single thread, as otherwise information on the subject can get fragmented and may be missed by later readers.

To all, please add any responses to JSC's request to the other thread.

Thanks :thumbup:
