Made in Spain! The seat experience reinvented through unique designs
In the world of piano playing the seat is often taken for granted and we rarely read about manufacturers focusing on the design of piano stools and benches. Piano Street has talked to Zayda Jiménez, founder of Kaunus, a manufacturer who takes both the visual and functional aspects of piano bench design to a new height. Read more >>

Piano world has been sold

Piano World Has Been Sold!

To all Piano World Forums Members & Guests

The time has come.

After twenty five years as the founder/creator/host of Piano World and the world famous Piano Forums I've decided it's time to move on.
I turned seventy last November and have been lucky enough to have a wonderful woman enter my life.

I'm going to try on semi-retirement for a change.

I'll still keep an eye on the forums, participating from time to time, and I'll continue to tune pianos and play gigs. I'm looking forward to more time to practice the piano and compose, catch up on my reading,
get into woodworking, host and attend piano parties, and of course spend time with Lorraine.
My heartfelt thanks to all who have participated in the forums over the years especially those who have been kind enough to support Piano World and the Forums financially. And a special thank you to our moderators who have worked tirelessly over the years to try to maintain some semblance of sanity in the millions of posts you all have created.

For the rest of the details, please visit https://forum.pianoworld.com//ubbthreads.php/topics/3255005.html

All the Best,
Frank Baxter

Not me.  This is the first I'm hearing about it.  Maybe Nils bought it and will combine both forums. 

I haven't been over there in years.  The simpler format over here definitely seems like a plus after seeing all the subforums there.

He's making a new website though?  Must be a different topic.

I wonder how much it sold for.  Or how much money that or this site makes.
