Title: Yamaha Clavinova CVP-59S, free for collection
Post by S J Birkill on Today at 13:42
As some of you will know, Carole and I will be emigrating to the West Coast of Canada next month, and there's a lot we must leave behind. Including MV Central, a.k.a. St Ann's, our fine house in Sheffield, now sold:

Also among the collection is our electronic keyboard, this 88-key Clavinova, the very instrument played by Pete at the 1997 and 1999 Monyash 'Field of Dreams' events:

Here it is (hear it!) in this YouTube video clip from 1997: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qkax_vjPx1U.

This second picture isn't of my instrument, but illustrates the identical model:

The Clavinova has had only light use, and is in excellent working condition. I would be happy to give it, free of charge, to any member who'd like to provide it with a good home. The only proviso is that it must be collected from Sheffield (South Yorkshire) within the next 4 weeks. It does dismantle, so will fit easily into an estate car, or a hatchback with the rear seats stowed.

If you're interested, drop me a line at <sheffield@peteatkin.com>.

In case anyone's worried about MV's future, please have no fear. Everything here will continue just as it always has -- you'll not see any difference.

Well, I made the trip from Kent to MV Central today to collect the piano. My goodness, it was well worth the eight hours or so on the road to get there and back. Now safely transported, re-assembled and sounding wonderful. In honour of its provenance, I 'christened'  it with my covers of History And Geography and The Flowers And The Wine, followed by Faded Mansion and No Dice. Big thanks again to Steve and Carole for their generosity. :) :) :) All hard on the heels of a gig in Hastings tonight!
