Strange Piano

I was called in to check out a couple of pianos at a retirement home recently. One was a nice Yamaha GH1 with a player system. It was TERRIBLY out of tune.

The second one was a "Knight" console piano (I had never heard of that brand.). The piano was in great tune, but as I played I noticed something very STRANGE. I looked down and noticed that the pedals were installed UPSIDE DOWN! Never had I seen such a thing, or even imagined it. Later as I considered why this would be, I reasoned that possibly someone short was playing it and his feet would not reach the pedals. Upside down, they were about 6 inches higher.

Piano tuners often have strange tales to tell!
