Would anyone here happen to know anything about pianos? Family giving grandma's old Grotrian-Steinweg to aunt, was just curious about age. Oct 12, 2019 at 9:32 AM

        I did compliment the biscuits! I'd actually go back just to get a couple to snack on, haha. But props to them the place was literally packed near closing, the franchise is new to the country so loads of people just swarming in up to the last minute and keeping them on their toes. Benefit of the doubt for now.

        But I will never say anything nice about the gravy they used.

        I wonder if they require SN verification to purchase replacement ribbons. If not I'd be tempted to just buy the ribbons at 350, build a jank headband/enclosure, slap some actual pads on there and go down the DIY rabbit hole. OB headphones aren't my thing as someone who can't stand anything with bass rolloff before like 25 hz

What I was tempted to do was get all buddy buddy with the local audio shop and ask if I could use their demo TH900 unit's S/N and try Frankenstein-ing the drivers into my HP-3.
