If you need fingering, you should see what figuration is giving you problems, and find an exercise, like Hanon, which deals with that figuration, and use the fingering given for that. In the case of K. 1, it would probably be an exercise for broken t

kapelli, I do recall when the CA97/CA67 first began shipping, some customers experienced difficulty playing a key very gently without always triggering the note. This sensitivity can be adjusted using the instrument's 'Minimum Touch' setting. Aside

Edited version? I always thought originals are the best. Urtext versions are the closest to originals having been documented back to the source. Sometimes the composer will leave the fingering, and pedaling for that matter, out on purpose. I t

Odd that you would be resurrecting a dead topic for this, but it is odder still that the felt would have tested as synthetic or cellulose. There are no synthetics used in hammers, except for oddballs like the Yamaha CP60-70-80 electric pianos. Synthe

What I suggest is that the profile of the V-bar should be done before finishing the casting. It needs to be a definite V shape not a U shape so the strings can pivot at the termination. The actual string contact should be less than 1mm wide and the p

If you have a filled-grain wood finish done, it is important that the grain filler be a very dark red/brown hue. This is the way they were originally done and it sets the grain pattern off wonderfully. Satin sheen is also the only way top go if you w

One important technical specification that almost all piano manufacturers and many rebuilders fail to meet is the proper shape of the V-bar. This affects the treble tone and the longevity of the strings. The V-bar should be a definite V-shape and it
