    Noooooooooo. That's the first thing that came out of my mouth when I saw the title. What a shame.

    They should have had at least two movers. That one poor dude never had a chance. Her first clue that something might be wrong was when he got out the hand truck from his Mini Cooper.

    It is CNN reporting. Maybe it's fake news? :rolleyes:

    A piano worth nearly $200k?

    Maybe you shouldn’t be moving such an instrument just to record?

    Ohh man that is brutal. At the music school I went to in the late '80's and '90s we would have our recitals, and our exams in the main hall. It had an absolutely amazing and just beautiful Bosendorfer Imperial Concert Grand; even as a young kid/teenager you could tell the quality of the instrument just from the sound and they way it played. For my pocketbook I'm glad I moved over to guitar!!

    Why not? People buy 500k cars to drive.

    Cars are made to drive.

    Pianos are not made to be moved. That's why we have digital.

    Huh? This doesn't make a lot of sense to me. We're talking about the voice of a Virtuoso here. What else is she going to record with?
