Jump to new posts Re: Steinway, Steinwas - and now, "Steinnot" by iLaw @ Yesterday at 04:33 PM

OK, I know a pianist who bought a rebuilt Steinway (including new soundboard and plank) and asked the rebuilder to put the Steinway name on the fallboard in a (significantly) newer style than would be correct for the year the piano was originally man

Hello, Thanks so much for the response! I will be upgrading from the Yamaha YPG235. You are certainly right, I don't "need" the MOXF, but I definitely desire it. I'm most certainly looking to be able to record my own songs, which will cons

I think it's important to note that any method is only as good or bad as the teacher that uses it; there are many fine teachers using Bastien (Not my favorite), and terrible ones using Piano Adventures (which I like). In the case of truly outstanding

I prefer a streaming site as that makes someone stealing your audio file more difficult. It may not be a big risk, but the risk isn't zero. Soundcloud.com is free and provides a streaming service for just audio and I believe you can allow downloads i

I hope it will remain alive. I doubt it though, music is haram to the majority there and there seems to be (seems!) really little room for nuances in the area.

I've said it before but... why is the age a factor on whether we like something or not? Every person grows older. If I am to listen to anything I'll listen because I like the sound, the performance, etc and will not cut back on my standards because

It is only by looking for perfection that you get the flawed DPs we have today. If we were content with whatever we get we would still be playing on a Wurlitzer 200A. The industry could have advanced a lot more. There is no reason to still be worki

I finally ended up buying the N1 last week and it was delivered to my house yesterday. In the end, no stores in my area had a V-piano to try so I crossed that one out, and I couldn't find an RD800 to demo either. I only found the RD700, and I was t
