English term or phrase: prepared piano
I'm a musician myself but can't remember the Russian term to save my life now! If there's somebody around who knows it, could you please spell it in LATIN letters for me -- my computer can't read Cyrillic here at ProZ.
Oh, and maybe one of you guys could be EVER so kind to have a look at my post at the message board, of February 26 (NEED HELP-- computer won't understand Russian). Looks like no one visits that board at all! Thanks a million.
Cheers, Elaine Freeland

Explanation:
podgotovlennoe fortepiano or
podgotovlennoe pianino
or
podgotovlennyi royal

You can use use "fortepiano" or "pianino" or "royal", depending on the context. To stress that the instrument is specially prepared, you can add "spetsialno":
spetsialno podgotovlennoe fortepiano (pianino, royal)

Comment in addition:
"Podgotovka" (preparing) has nothing to do with "nastroika" (tuning). Everyone knows what does "tuning up the piano" means. Whereas PREPARED piano is a piano whose sound is altered by devices such as metal clips or metal bolts attached to the strings; strips of paper, rubber, felt, etc., inserted across the strings;
altered tuning on the unison strings, etc. http://www.eyeneer.com/CCM/Clasdict/prepared.html
