Sorry if I come to this thread a bit late, but I regularly monitor only the DP forum for new posts. I have a similar problem as I have played most of my life with chords in the left hand. Now, I am not particularly interested in classical music, but

One thing that can help with sight reading is knowing all the Major and Minor scales and arpeggios and some music theory. When one knows instantly that C E G is the same as E-flat G B-flat, and if with familiarity one can transpose music automatical

What a shame. I've been very pleased with the PNE versions of Chopin's music. Hearing about Prof. Ekier's meticulous attention to detail in editing it was reassuring to me. At least he lived a long, full life and was able to help make the PNE a highl

Hmmm -- Are there OEM soundboard companies, like Renner and WNG make actions? Replacement soundboards seem to come either from individual craftsmen and small businesses, or from the original manufacturer. Steinway will certainly tell you that the on

I hold the same point as Joe. What our ears get from a distance is actually a bit different from what our ears get when sitting at the piano. And a piano which sounds "good" can really be a "wow~" when I hear some others playing o

The best in my opinion would be from someone who would build a custom board for you to your specs. Grains per inch, grain orientation, thickness, lack of sapwood etc. People like Dale Erwin in Modesto Calif or possibly Del Fandrich? At least Del can

Hello Lyra, As far as M&H is concerned, I would consider Ari Isaac's hammers, and his bass strings. I have had excellent results with his products. www.isaacpiano.com Here are some links to recordings I have made over the last 6+ years, with

Lyra, it is your choice, you can have basically anything that you want... The hammer choice is not that important, the voicing style is. If you take those Renner hammers--that you didn't like--treat them with the lacquering voicing protocols, match
