Actually that transparent Kawai only gives off the image of being transparent. All the important parts are covered with a solid white material, which then is coated by the transparent panels to give off the image.

I like the pianos that Tori Amos uses. I saw a clip of her playing Sleeps With Butterflies on like the David Letterman show and her piano was huge. Very long, was topless and the soundboard had round holes in it. I never could see the brand of it tho

Tori Amos plays Bosendorfers.

I've had the opportunity to play a Bosendorfer Imperial Grand and though it was a while ago, I was very impressed with the touch and overall sound, though I have to admit I'd probably have to play it more to get used to the metallic tone - plus that extra octave on the bottom threw me off at first.

I've yet to play a Fazioli, but love their sound from the recordings I've heard. The Steinway D is my tried and true friend, though.

<3 the Steinway D. That tone is just simply unmatchable by any instrument I've yet heard. I've played a Bosendorfer as well and I'm in total agreement on the metallic sound. Actually when I was around 13 or 14 I performed a Chopin Polonaise on one and couldn't resist jumping down a few keys and reharmonizing in the middle of the piece to see what the bottom end would sound like. I was being judged and they laughingly pointed out my experimentation at the end, but promised not to hold it against me. BTW it sounded dead awful when I hit the brown keys, a gamble that definitely didn't pay off.

But yeah, Steinway has the sweet spot for a beatiful sounding instrument. Breaking one in is pure hell though, through the years I ended up regularly playing two that were in their first year. Constant problems until they settle down.

I see nothing beautiful about the clear piano or any of that other junk. Maybe if you're buying it as a piece of art for your mansion, but there's no way either of the "designer pianos" that were posted can sound pleasant.

Hey Jahn!, you need to understand your fellow asians more!
Here's more for your radar!




I love jrock.. I got corrupted and infested last month and my classical music listening time has gone up quite a bit as well.


Edit: Oh yea, this is really off topic but it's about Yoshiki.

He is probably the best piano/drummer player who ever existed. I mean that by a combination of his skills. He can also compose a heavy metal song into a classical orchestral piece with strings GOOD ENOUGH for the London Symphony Orchestra to accept it. I truly admire his work.

Here is his 12 minute drum solo in one of the last few concerts he had with X Japan before they broke up. It's really magnificent.. really.
Best drum solo I've ever seen (pardon the YouTube quality)

I came accross this cool gallery while browsing for piano photographs.

I think I know John Bonham's response to Yoshiki - "What's with the fainting during your solo? And Real Drummers grow BEARDS! BLEARGH!!"
