Hi EM. Unfortunately I did not express myself clearly. I have a fantastic piano teacher presently who has taught me a lot in the past 6 years -- I am at the half-way mark of the Royal Conservatory of Music study program. What I meant is that in th

Working in the homes of private clients presents a situation where obsession can be a problem. You are an invited intruder, but an intruder none-the-less. I've learned to tune as cleanly and accurately as possible, and to do it as quickly as possible

Unison tuning: strip muting and none. I may have left the impression that strip mutes are used for the duration. They are not. Only at the outset: Once, to get an overall snapshot, and again or more if a PR/change is called for or if the pitch is al

Hello, apropos New Kawai CA series. I went to a big music shop in Fukuoka last weekend. When I asked why their presented CA-15 was comparatively cheap, the guy told me, they need to make room for the next model, which would come out in February. I wi

In Rachmaninoff op. 16. no. 4 there is a part in measures 15, 16 and 17 where quavers are attached to semiquavers by octaves. To voice these, they are played louder. Usually you here the top notes being played louder. However, the quaver and semiquav

Yes, agreed with Mark. The water-thin CA is specifically formulated to wick into small cracks between parts, which the normal thickness CA will not do (at least not as well). The owner of the hobby shop where I found my water-thin CA, explained to m

Why not use a thicker glue? Because of the danger of being too thick to go into the gap. Loose pins are not wobbly eh. Really, there is no "gap". If the glue is too thin such that it soaks into the wood, then that seals the wood and a sec

Weinreich is a very strong reason for me to use DSU, because at the level I am trying to tune ET, the drifting is a problem, especially around octave 6 and 7. Not sure if you were mentioning Weinreich as a possible reason for the shifting C#4F4 and

I remember reading about issues with the previous CA's sustain pedal (in terms of dimensions). I believe the pedal sat too close to the player in comparison to an acoustic's sustain pedal.
