Well, the problem is that I'm moving to the US, and am not sure what pianos tend to cost there.
Also, I would rather pay for a good/decent (preferably new) one since I'd regard it as a long term investment, and because I'm tired of playing on bad pianos!
At the moment I'm leaning towards a Yamaha U series, plain and simple, quite predictable in terms of quality, big company in case something goes wrong etc.
I am too concerned about tone, as long as it is clear and perfectly in tune. I'm more worried about
control, and what it 'feels' like - it must be powerful and easy to play, but not such that I drive the neighbours crazy!
