This is my overall impression aside from the keys that sound "dead" or "twangy." It sounds like a rebuilt "old" piano. Does that make sense? Is that possible that a completely rebuilt piano could still sound old?

Just a small observation. The person who asked for help has not been back, and has not responded to a single post in this thread since opening it. Shall we perhaps wait for such a response?
