My tech taught me how to take off the fallboard and even remove and replace the action. He said, invariably, things fall into pianos and it's good to know how to get them out again.

Blackjack, it's interesting that you say that, since for whatever reason this week (probably work overload) I feel a bit underwater with my piano practice. In some pieces I almost feel that I'm playing worse than I was a week ago. So I'm putting La B

After 10 months with the CA97 (same action), I'd say I find the action to be a bit too heavy and slow for me but I must say that I probably think so because I'm struggling with octave tremolos on the bass with the left hand. Happened the same thing w

I would stick with metallic finishes, regardless of color. Even a vibrant color looks dull or viscous on painted cast iron. Have fun with your color schemes, but do keep in mind that everything is in shadow under the lid. Consider using colors tha

Thanks to everyone who responded, but I will follow humax's suggestion above, which seems to be exactly what I was looking for. Many thanks for your clear post and even a link to better drivers; that really is helpful.

Hey K361...have you had a chance to test drive either the cs11 or lx17? I went today, the owner was great, very generous with his time, I am leaning into one, but would love your feedback...especially given your classical piano background. Thanks.

9/8 is _usually_ (in European classical music) broken down into three triplets: ONE two three FOUR five six SEVEN eight nine ( = 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 ). But there are other possibilities, and they show up from time to time (no pun intended), especial

I think it depends on the level of the pianist and difficulty of the piece. IMHO the overwhelming majority of pianists are greatly helped and can save a lot of time with a well fingered edition. Extremely advanced pianists may not need or have to use

I like to also check on henle.de, which has a much steeper grading. In that rating Brahms Op. 79/2 is only 5.5 out of 9. Grade 9 is the really top level stuff like the Hammerklavier sonata.
