It’s been 11 months since I posted on Pianoworld about my decision to buy a Sauter Omega 220. Well it has finally arrived. Delivery commenced at 11am on Friday 8th August. It was a very auspicious day, with many ‘8’s:
- Date – 08.08.2008 (and first day of the Beijing Olympics)
- Serial number – contains an 8
- Price – contains 8’s
- Address of my flat – contains an 8
I hope it augers well for the future! 😀
Annotated delivery pictures are at this link . The guest password is ‘digit’. A few quick snaps are shown below.
Pictures cannot do justice to the exquisite craftsmanship of the piano. The attention to detail, fit, finish, and hardware are nothing short of amazing. The first tuning and prep (not there is much to do other than to run through the checklist), will be in two week’s time.
