JIM LAAB’S MUSIC. Was the best experience Iï¿½ve had a purchasing something major via the internet. I desperately wanted a baby grand piano for my new house, however, a zillion trips to music stores, some near and some quite far away, left me feeling very depressed. I specifically wanted a black gloss baby grandï¿½. didnï¿½t care what brand and I donï¿½t have enough musical knowledge to care is it was a ï¿½goodï¿½ one.
I just wanted something inexpensive. Well, what I found out, is there is no such thing. Well, let me rephrase thatï¿½. I found only ONE reasonably priced
place and it was on the internet.
What I did was went to the local music store and had them show me their cheapest baby grandï¿½. which was a 5ï¿½3ï¿½ Ritmuller. They said the average retail was $12,000 but they could sell it to me for $8900. That was still out of my league.
So, after finding Jim Laabï¿½s, I called and spoke to one of the owners. He was friendly and helpful. I told him the model I was looking at and I told him I was at the other end of the country from him.
