Larry, The Phoenix pianos are now provided with the WN&G composite actions when purchasing through Hurstwood Farms. I don't know if they are available through other Steingraeber dealerships.

lovely playing on the V piano, but, imo, the bass notes sounded like a digital; ie non-woody. Pianoteq bass notes sound woody. The acoustic was, too, lovely. But for some reason, the bass notes still didn`t sound woody. Every acoustic piano I`ve

Prout -- That would be an excellent test and comparison. Are the wood M&H actions WN&G or are they simply Mason actions? Might they possibly be built by Renner or another company? Anyone know?

Hi Brad, I've felt the same way, too. And I agree with lots of the advice you've already been given, regarding transcribing and learning harmony better, etc. I'll just add one thing: In the 30 years that I've been a professional musician, I've met a
