The 'C' models are made to be less expensive with music schools in mind. The lid is simpler, the plate has less clear coating, there are no brass finials on the plate bolts, etc. The bridge is solid instead of the usual bent bridge with cap. There

Both note and interval recognition greatly increase the ability to read through music and learn pieces. Once you are past the beginner level, you will encounter 2 and 3 notes in one hand and can identify them as 3rds, 4ths, 5ths, octaves etc. As you

Start a new post. Introduce yourself. Explain a bit where you are at as a technician. Take lots of videos and pictures. Ask precise and concise questions. Your chances of getting responses will grow exponentially. All the best.

I agree, call the tech back. Double strike or blubbering hammers on a grand can be the result of several intersecting regulation points. If the escapement is set too close, (and more than a few techs today seem to be regulating actions with escape

I had the same experience when playing the YDP162 (GH keys) and YDP142 (GHS keys) side by side at the piano shop. I found the action on the lighter and 'lower end' GHS keys to be more realistic to my experiences with acoustic uprights. So I had to fo
