Rust on strings is a big problem. Has anybody ever tried stainless steel strings?

Coming back to Spanish Pop, this song (La culpa fue del cha, cha, cha) reminds me when I was a teen and every girl drove me crazy. Then I was a kind of errant hormone, lol!

Hi William, This piano does have plate bushings, and I saw that mentioned in a PTG thread recently. I don't subscribe to that theory that plate bushings are enough to stabilize the pin block when there is no flange contact. I can crush a bushing pre

Does anyone have any thoughts about the pianos Jim Laabs sells that are reconditioned in Japan? He tells me has been doing business with this Japanese company for 16 years and has been happy with their products. He puts his 5-year guarantee on them.

I agree. Lucas should commended on his progress but in my opinion as an RPT, I would not recommend he attempt the exam. I believe the unisons would not pass. As for your ranting at A443 Bill, I find it distasteful.

Bob, you have not identified the make of piano. The question I have here is whether or not it has plate bushings for the tuning pins. Pianos like Yamaha and Kawai (like many pianos)have plate bushings, and they argue that a pinblock does not needed

Enjoyable performance! I liked your interpretation of the movement a lot. I'm still working on it myself and I have a lot to learn from the way you did it.
