Most of the time now electronics never completely shutdown. There is a small amount of power used, for example, to allow a remote control to turn a device on. Only by unplugging the device could you depower it. Batteries are not necessary to maintai

Thanks, will do. This is the first one I tuned. I watched a load of videos on YouTube and used the Entropy Piano Tuning app on my phone. I'll do another tuning soon. I had more difficulty with the very low notes. They aren't sounding all that good.

If you had time, I'd run through the tuning one more time, especially since you had to correct the pitch pretty significantly when you did it the first time. Also, I'd have the machine remeasure the piano completely from scratch before you tuned it

Sounds good, PT. I believe I'd go over the tuning one more time, do a little hammer shaping/filing, hammer-to-string-mating, and some hammer voicing/needling, and you'll have a very nice sounding freebie piano!! All the best, Rick

I hadn't thought much about the tuning aspect of buying an acoustic piano. I don't think it would be too expensive to tune it once a year or so, but I'll take it into account.

I knew digital pianos aged and became outdated quickly, but i didn't realise it really made that much of a difference. Seeing as I haven't played on an acoustic piano before, I will be going to a piano dealer to try out some of the uprights they have

You are on the bit of the site which deals with acoustic pianos, so you were always going to get that answer. An acoustic piano is an organic musical instrument. You grow to love it. It changes and surprises you. You have to give it care and attenti
