The Audi Bosendorfer Piano.

Audi Bosendorfer

My number one all time tip on how to improve your own music creation is to take piano lessons. I’m constantly amazed when I read Gearslutz forum threads like “Neve vs Vintech” or “Apogee vs RME”. I understand that quality of sound counts but melody far trumps its importance. I’d rather listen to a great song on an AM radio station in mono rather than a bad song in HD. I know I’ve said this before on this blog but it’s worth repeating over and over.

Now that we established you have to take piano lessons we can get back to gear lusting! I don’t recommend the Audi Bosendorfer Piano as a something you plop your kid down in fron of next to a teenage piano teacher. This Piano belongs to you and your very own fingers. If I owned this baby I certainly would not let anyone else touch it no matter how good they play! That’s right Stevie Wonder: hands off!

The Bosendorfer Audi Design Grand Piano will make its world debut at Audi’s 100th anniversary celebration at the Audi Forum in Ingolstadt on July 16, after which it will be available to the public for a princely €100,000 (about $140,000).” –…
