Fitting new damper felts to an overdamper action is a job I have only ever done once. I used the correct 'end grain' felt (which I don't know if you can still get from the supply houses) and the little hard strip for the last few treble ones. It was

For some reason, I think Friends Forever, by Vitamin C, sounds very similar to the Pachelbel Canon in D by Bach. I think the harmonic progression is the same throughout the whole song.

Lots of great responses! I think a CD is possible. Native Instruments has Akoustik Piano which features the Bechstein, Bosendorfer and Steinway, so it's possible to sample every one on the market. (each individual model)

I was taught to sit at Middle C, so that is the general place where I sit... I do not measure it, but just check that I can reach the pedals comfortably and that it feels right... so somewhere in the vicinity of Middle C.
