Thanks Allard, my browser is happy. Sounds good. Maybe back off the RH at 3:30, the repeased notes are too much IMHO, the LH has more interesting things at a few places.

Next time we get to feeling that S&S is being unfair in what little they try to hold on to, think about all of the USA manufacturers that have total aftermarket control. There is inconsistency in a system that says it's okay for you or I to compl

Jump to new posts Re: Pin block not contacting plate flange by Bob @ Yesterday at 03:06 PM

No....It's not a Kawai.....I would imagine a plate flange adds stability to the plate, helping prevent the plate bowing higher or lower in the middle. A rocking pin block has a different type of instability than stretching strings of a newer piano.

With the rest of the story... I think it's reasonable to spend some money fixing the piano and see if you like it. If so, keep it. If not, sell it. BTW, have you researched your rebuilder carefully? There is a huge variance in quality of work.
