When buying my house in Scotland I inherited a majestic 100+ year old Pleyel piano. Pretty unplayable I enquired with a piano restorers how much would it cost to gut and replace it’s innards. The quote came back at £30,000, the big catch was it would leave me with a piano with a resale value of £300! so with regrets and a heavy heart I donated it to a local community centre. I sampled it (under difficult conditions) for posterity.

Here’s a somewhat sombre video all about it…
