Jump to new posts Re: Yamaha FC3 Pedal Squeak by Charles Cohen @ Yesterday at 06:53 PM

If you just want a heavy, inexpensive "on/off" pedal, M-Audio makes a good one. It's around $20. Otherwise, make sure that what you buy is compatible with the P105's "half-pedalling" feature (if it has one). . Charles

Thank you for your kind and "respectful" words. In that you mention "singing melody," it is not the same type you would want for Chopin or Brahms. Each of the famous composers of the Romantic Period had their own distinct voice.

Well, I can sort of relate. Most of the older classical styles isn't my thing either. I wouldn't use the word hate, but I view some of it as "exercises on a musical instrument." However, there are several TV shows or movies that have m

A DOA is very poorly self centered, in fact it only have an envy, to settle, if not "pushed" originally in a determined direction I think it can adopt any kind of stable posture. Probably not very long lasting because so much energy is use

Clothespins work well too (the clippy kind). Also, some pianos have a piece of suede or microfiber glued to the part where the music sits on top of which prevents it from sliding everywhere. Maybe look into applying some sort of adhesive there with t

Unisons should never beat, nor should they ever move/detune with any amount of banging on by a pianist--no matter the unison style. However, consider this: a DOA unison (0.0, 0.0, 0.0) that slips to (0.0, 0.0, -0.2)--for whatever reason--is far more
