Very interesting... I have a different approach altogether: I focus on balancing the voicing first (i.e., which requires much lighter hammers than is standard today), then figuring out what kind of action geometry adjustments need to happen to put b

I, too, am really interested to know this. The Rach 2 is one of my all-time favorites and, while I am not an accomplished enough pianist to play it end-to-end, there are certain passages I really like that I frequently approximate that consist of tho

One factor in treble breakage is that when one is installing strings it is very easy to inadvertently apply too much tension on the treble strings. So they can get damaged in the installation process by being over stretched. The damage doesn't manife

The wooden keys on the Kawai CA65/Ca95 is a different breed then on the CN series. It is not just the plastic vs wood. The CA series has the long pivot point, more like a real grand piano. The CN series is not bad, but I would suggest you try the CA

Thanks a lot for our input, Bruce! I think that either of those programs can work, I just have to figure out the timing. At the very least, this gives me an idea of how to structure the program so that it is balanced and reasonably diverse.
