No doubt they'll outsource production to China immediately.

Only for the stash of "antique" NOS pianos that were "discovered" in the back of a New Jersey warehouse.

Now I can show my wife my request to spend $80k on a Steinway B was actually a comparatively reasonable and sane proposition.

That'll look nice with that deep red shag on there.

"But that's a priceless Steinway!"
"Not anymore."

I hope he has enough left over to pay the property tax bill for St. Helens of the Blessed Shroud orphanage in Calumet City.

Ok that headline made me laugh. I'm being looked at.

Hmmmmm?

You should be able to get one second-hand for a lot less than that.  Around here, Steinways never bring more than $20K at auction.

You mean the Goldman Sachs/treasury secretary/MF global guy?

If so, then no.

He could have gotten a Henweigh a lot cheaper.

A little part of me (and my past) dies whenever a brand I grew up with is sold like this. Yeah, I guess that means I'd rather the brand died than went on under new ownership.
 
2013-08-14 08:33:17 PM
I'd prefer a Henway.

Given the life expectancy of a well cared for Steinway, I wonder how much the secondary market has cut into new sales.

And they're much easier to move

Hmmm, think of the marketing opportunities. Steinway branded schools of piano around the world. Steinway certified piano movers and tuners. Officially licensed puffy shirts and top hats.
