Sam, with all due respect, what you just said with respect to rebuilds does not make any sense.

I've used Damp-Chaser for 20 years. Good, not great. Perfectly regulated humidity pays off big, big time. Not just keeping the piano IN TUNE; but in the action and feel. HUGELY important. Solution.... http://www.thermomart.com/humidity-control-

Scorpio, You might want to check out Roland's RD-800 which has a phenomenal action and a lot of versatility. Also, I haven't played Yamaha's CP4, but it seems to get really good reviews in terms of the quality of the action. If you like the ya

Personally, I'm fine with a so-called disciplinarian, as long as I know that the method behind their discipline will get me results. Nothing wrong with some tough love.

Thanks Lennert for the links. It's a great sound. Might be tricky wearing the MP7 around the neck though :-) I note that Casio PX-5S owners have a thriving setup-file exchange hosted through their Casio forums. I wondered if Kawai might eventually h

Personally, I'd rather steer well clear of a rebuild, for my money I'd rather have either A new piano or a good original condition second-hand one. Don't get me wrong I'm well aware there can be nothing wrong with a rebuild, especially if it's don

For all work applications (Broadway shows) I use Macbooks with SSD. Over the past few years I've purchased and set up around 100 of them - very robust and reliable. We use RME interfaces because they're also quite reliable. But on these shows someone

Well the DGX-305 seems to have an ordinary spring key action, not a hammer action keyboard like a piano. It would not be suitable for learning piano on, I don't think - your P105 is better. If possible, when you play, use the weight in your forearm

A writer will tend to regard words as expressing what s/he means and that others will understand; a painter similarly through painting; a composer through music. What is (and I know some will disagree) clear - to me at any rate - is that one art form

To James Carney, popping off the hammers and doing the side taper may be a possible solution, but it depends. If any side tapering has been done before, then it would be awkward to do any side tapering other than by freehand on a sander. It's not g

This is a wonderful performance -- the turbulence and tenderness so characteristic of early Scriabin come shining through in your interpretation. I'm not sure why you think of this as a work in progress. Only a few false notes here and there; when

No, don't look for a "disciplinarian", which is a terrible idea. Simply look for someone who teaches well and in the correct way.
