I always find it annoying when people are derogatory about a musician's talent because they don't like their music. Saying she isn't talented or is a mediocre writer is just silly. I suspect she has more talent and motivation than anyone belittling h

It is more difficult to bring down a shrill, harsh toned hammer and gain a stable, warm dynamic responding instrument than it is too take a dull, wooly toned hammer and bring it up. You bring up tone by reducing hammer mass, (especially in the top th

Old Mason & Hamlin grands had straight legs with brass ferrules at the end, rather than the spade legs that your piano has. The underside view of the piano shows that the legs have been replaced.

I think the tabs were removable in the RM3 action, because it was an optional feature. In the GF action I have a feeling that they're not, although I don't have any photos and it's been a long time since I opened my CA95, so I can't fully remember.

Bellicapelli, it may be worth contacting a Kawai dealer in your area, and/or Kawai's Italian distributor Furcht pianoforti to seek assistance. Even though I gather that you purchased your CA63 second hand, the dealer/distributor may still be willing
