I laughed... This is the old piano I got and couldn't fix, so I destroyed it! I think the black keys are ebony, so I kept them, but that's it. Here are some pictures of it after I introduced it to a sledge hammer. Just so you know, I had to throw it away because all the idiots around insisted they'd take it for free only if I got it to them for free... um... no!

any reason you smashed a valuble piece of equipment? It probably could've been fixed by somebody. Then again, I don't know the extent to which it was broken, and if it would've been worth it.

And the point of all this was...............?


To brag... I'm sorry...

But on a customizations level, I kept the keys to make into bridges or other various things. I also kept some other random crap I might use in future guitar projects.


Oh, and the piano was hella free, and I'm actually hella smart

Yeah... sound or it didn't happen!

I have a piano sitting in my house doing absolutely nothing. Out of tune, broken, we just set crap on it. But it's an upright, so we can't fit much stuff on it. It was free. I don't know why we took it, and it's broken and just taking up space...

SMASH IT! Go get yourself a hammer and break it to bits! I'll give you one hint though, don't take all the big screws out first or it'll break too easy and be over too fast. That is, all except for the big fat frame thing on the back, that takes a couple hours to break into small enough pieces.

Oh, and I don't know much about pianos, but it was some "Steinway", or something like that.


No it wasn't. I lied.

well it IS made out of IRON! I'm amazed you even managed to break an iron piano frame into small pieces at all! Chuck Norris would probably have a hard time breaking one of those with his bare hands!

Would have been better if you pushed it out of an upstairs window and it landed on some old granny walking down the road.

Or burn it. Yeah, burn it and watch it being consumed by fire, slowly at first and then ever fiercer and faster. And then an occasional twang will sound from a string breaking, probably causing a short burst of sparks rising with the fumes....

Or bring it to a stone quarry and push it over the edge. Much better than dropping it off a building, because then you'll get that extremely satisfying series of bangs instead of one big smash. It's difficult though to watch it going from above. You'd best have someone else doing the terminal push while you yourself watch from below.

And, oh yeah, that's a good one; tie one behind your truck and then see what's its terminal velocity.

An extremely perverted friend of mine put a such a piano outside on the lawn and then spent years watching moisture, molds and mosh decompose it and turn it into furtile soil. Not as spectacular maybe, but lasting fun.

And musical instrument lovers be assured there is really nothing lost with an old upright piano that has it's frame cracked. I did one a while ago and all that it brought me was a few pieces of well aged spruce to turn into guitar bracings and a inexhaustible stockpile of ebony thumb rests.
#18
if any of the hammers are not broken they look like something you could sell on ebay. The felt doesn't look flat or worn which is a very good sign. You could also sell the tuning pins. They are probably worth more on their own than the piano was worth all put together.

Did you bother to try and save the soundboard?

You shoulda found a massive cliff, and a cardboard cut out of Wile E. coyote at the bottom and pushed the piano off onto it and filmed it, woulda been cool...

Personally I'd have salvaged all the neccesarry parts to use/sell down the road, then set it on fire, pissed on it out of a 3rd story window, then played 'Blood On My Hands' by Demons & Wizards on my B.C. Rich Bich Perfect 10 and sent it on a travel through time with the Flux Capacitor pre-built in, warp it with an added Kaos Pad and start/stopped it with the added Killswitch.
