OK now I need a giant piano and woofer speakers. The person upstairs has been rebuilding their [brand spanking new] condo for the last two days with ear-splitting drill sounds that not even the thickest concrete floor can muffle. What can there be to fix? What?

This one we all occasionally have to grin and bear - it's usually only for a couple of days and within reasonable hours. If too early or too late a call to building management would be fair and you would likely not be the only tenants inconvenienced.

BTW I saw some decent electric pianos at Best Denki the other day, but small selection. There's a Yamaha shop on the top floor of Plaza Singapura that probably has more. There are more professional music stores in The Peace Center and Bras Basah Complex.

i think you're gonna have a lot of trouble getting rid of your piano when you leave.

this year alone, i've personally known of 3 families who ended up throwing away their pianos as no one would come to take it away - even for free. every body wanted a fee to take their pianos away.

i would personally put a free ad out or look for someone selling their old piano for cheap, have it delivered, tuned and cleaned by a piano man/shop (and whatever else is needed for it to be in good playing condition) and given to your children for additional abuse.

it is cheaper than buying a $2k or $3k piano. but that's just me...!

Thanks very much for the tips. Lots to go on there. Will be back on here in a few weeks asking for sound-proofing companies.
