It would have been nicer if the video's music had been music from the new piano, rather than orchestral dreck. But this could be the end of "Casio only makes watches. What do they know about music?" And if the samples (if it uses sample

Wow hard choices! Take them both - get rid of a bookcase somewhere to make room! The Steinway Vertegrand is among the best upright pianos ever made; according to some sources, the best. And if you have been told that this one is in good shape, it's

I use 5445. Just think fingertips and getting your fingers stronger. It will give you more control. When you go up for the 2 black note octaves your wrist should elevate but it should go back to where it was when you get to the E and B octaves. At f

If it's price is "name your own" it sounds like they are basically giving it away. So chances are it's not in decent condition but anything is possible. Could it be a "decent" instrument? ... depends on your definition of decent.

Yes, the sound source and the sampling should be the same. The sampling is HI-XL and they both have the Kawai EX and the Shigeru Kawai EX, but the CA67 has one additional Shigeru Kawai (SK-5) sample. If you mostly play through headphones, the two ad

At that age, if it has never had any work done on it, it's probably more furniture than musical instrument, but not necessarily. If you can "name your own price", I'd gamble a bit more and go ahead and hire the tech to check it out. That'

It's whatever works for you that gives a clean staccato. I use 323232 on the E-flats and then 212121 on the Fs. Then....it's 23 on the E-flat to A-flat to get my thumb on the C, not 24.

What you want to do is use 5241 for the most part of the piece. I do this so I really don't have to think too much about using other fingers. I use this fingering with a few variations. in bars 41-44 I use 1425 exclusively. just practice it slowly pl

Thanks Hendrik. Of interest - better action (I thought they may be the same). Do you know if the sound source is the same? The sampling or generation. My focus is on one or a few piano voices, through headphones.
