I don't like this one, either. Looks like the cockpit of a space ship, doesn't it?



I'm afraid to play this piano. It might turn into Optimus Prime. :lol:

Ah, a pedal piano. Schumann wrote some music for one. It is actually a similar configuration to a pedal harpsichor.

It's not really 'ugly', but I'm not sure I could play this piano. I think it would give me a headache. Or maybe want to play lots of jungle music... :roll: :lol:

To play any serious music on this "zebra" would be a crime! I'm ashamed it's a Baldwin. :(

I used to be working on a piece called Zebra Stripes :!:
Well, planning to work on it, anyway. Never quite got into it.

57, actually. And it's a damn hard piece by the novelty composer Lothar Perl. I was working on 3 or 4 pieces by him but got distracted as usual.

That's pretty neat - a Lego piano. I like it too. I'm going to try to find where I can buy one. I used to play with Legos with my kids all the time when they were little.
