Agreed about cedar topped guitars. Done right they're lovely. I'd like to hear a cedar soundboard piano. After all those year playing the drums I don't hear treble anyway. Kurt

Thank you all for your suggestions! My first tuning went well, but there are some things that I really need to work on. I have now done several tunings, and I find that I am taking long removing case parts, and putting in the strip mutes. By the time

Not 5 hrs straight, but I had an organ and piano stint for a total of a couple of hours and my right FOOT ached when I drove home. Any way to prevent this?

I don't even THINK about breathing. It just happens, I guess, as I've never passed out yet over the keys. I HAVE been known to twitch my mouth for a second or two in certain passages - there is just no control over that, but I am aware I'm doing it

If I were you, I'd assign or write in the 1,2,3 and try to do without the 'ands'. Draw a dotted line up to the note involved. I write in the 'ands' if there is syncopation involved, plus eights, 16ths, dotted quarters etc. I had one number which

If you're a dealer, you should understand the scam already. First, he doesn't pay the regular retail rate of $!25 or so. He's gonna send the rookie and pay him like $75. Next he's betting the odds that the buyer or the buyer's kid will lose inte

I might get an acoustic. It depends on what you want. I never particularly liked the sound of a spinet before myself, but I got one cheap -a Kimball about 15 years back and made some progress on it. The tuning and action are really more important

I shape hammers in the piano regularly. The worst part of it is that does put a bit of strain on my back. Many times these are "quick and dirty" reshaping jobs: just minimizing the groves with some 60 grit paper and then rounding out the co

Jump to new posts Re: Advantages of tuning A4 = 442 Hz by Bill Bremmer RPT @ Yesterday at 07:56 PM

I totally agree with Ed and BDB on this. If you live in NYC and everybody wants 442, you do what you have to do when you have to do it. I also agree that the placebo effect is sometimes, perhaps quite often beneficial.

Has anyone here ever heard of a store offering lifetime piano tunings (2 a year for up to 10 years) for free with the purchase of a piano? What is your take? I cannot imagine a dealer including $2,500 in free tuning (his valuation) on a $3,000 pian

I would echo Jay's recommendation about the RD-800. I don't own one, but I have played it and its action feels somewhat heavier than my V-Grand, so that may be to your liking. Tony

I have yet to play any Physis instruments, however I believe an MP11 + Pianoteq combination will provide a much better action and a more realistic sound than any V-Piano or Physis product. Kind regards, James x
