I wondered if you could help me...

I have a Yamaha Gb1 4'11 baby grand in a mahogany case, its around 5 years old and in pristine condition - its been regularly tuned by a steinway tuner and kept in a recording studio.

I am currently looking sell my yamaha and purchase larger more 'professional' grand. I feel that the Yamaha doesn't quite meet my expectations, possibly due to the size and quality of production. I'm looking for something that offers me more of a pleasurable playing and recording experience with a good dynamic range suited for solo jazz piano and ensemble music.

My budget will obviously depend on what price I can get for my Yamaha. I was hoping to get around 6000, this would mean I could possibly go up to 10-12k.

I need some recommendations and thoughts.... I understand that I won't be able to afford a Steinway (which is a shame!!!, but i'm wondering whether I should be looking at another Yamaha or possibly a german piano such Schimmel. I would probably be looking at getting a second hand piano with my budget.

For sure you will have to go for a second hand grand with that budget.

If you are looking for good value for money and like the tone of a Steinway you might wan to try a Petrof piano. Their Keys are a bit heavy weighted though.

It looks like you're in the UK based on the price point you stated. If not you should contact Steve Drasche in NYC at https://www.draschepianos.com and he can assist you. Worked on Steinways/Yamaha for 40 years.
