So black Friday deals are coming to an end and I don't know what to do 🙂
I was hoping for a reduced price on the new Ivory 3 German D but unfortunately that did not happen.
Tomorrow is the last day to get a discount on VSL's pianos (Steinway or Fazioli) and then Synthogy has got the Ivory 2 pianos currently on sales as well.
I would like to get your opinions on the old ivory 2 grand pianos (I2GP) specifically - This package contains a C7, a Bösendorfer 290 and most importantly, the HB Steinway D.
Why is that important? Because buying this package would allow me to get the upgrade price on the new Ivory 3 German D.
On the one hand, I have listened to YouTube reviews and I actually like the sound of the old Ivory 2 Steinway D quite a bit:
(nice reviews/reviewers btw)
On the other hand, I think I2GP came out in 2011 (?) and maybe this is just not worth it?
Here are the prices:
Ivory 3 regular price : 279
Ivory 3 upgrade price : 149
I2GP current sales price: 244
I could either:
- get Ivory 3 only for $279, or
- get Ivory 3 + I2GP for 244+149 = $393
So if I bought both I2GP and Ivory 3 German D, I would be paying $114 for I2GP.
At the end of the day though, it would still be roughly $400 total, so I'm really not sure this is a good idea, especially since I could get the full version of VSL's Steinway for cheaper until tomorrow.
I figured I would ask what you guys think. For those of you who own or have played with I2GP, do you think it's worth it?
