Just bought an apartment sized Riga upright.  Very inexpensive.  I cannot find out any info on the brand.  It is a low end product and will do me just fine until I can leap up to a Yahama product at some later point in my life.  Anyone know much about who makes this piano and any stories about them would be fun to read.

Its bright new showroom in northern Moscow displays a sampling of its instruments, including a model named after Tchaikovsky, a $2,000 instrument advertised as an "economy" piano for the middle class.
