We haven't done a commercial in a long time.

What the heck.

Here's an interesting ... at least to me ... little vid Steinway did about their antique plant in Long Island City, New York and the people who work there building Steinway pianos by hand.

Having been fortunate enough to have played a decent number of the famed brands of pianos in this world, Bechstein, Bluthner, Bosendorfer, and Schimmel among the German names, Young Chang and Yamaha among the Pacific Rim builders, Italy's Fazioli, given the choice I'll always sit down with the Steinway first.

I think that to be the case for most every pianist (I'm not a pianist) or pounder (that's me) going back a hundred years.

They just sound better.

It's the overtones, I'm told.

Steinway pianos, handmade in America.

As an aside, some of the older Baldwins can be extraordinary as well.
