I think that wimpiano may basically have the right idea here. If one is selling a piano, one might want to know what the typical division of the selling price is between consignor and marketer/retailer, although I suppose it is always subject to neg

Few thoughts about this new CN series: - CN35 can be a killer in it's price bracket and probably even in everything up to CA95 / Roland HP506 price - wonder what will be the sound? the CN34 was bit thin, and, samples were not to inviting - second pa

Subcontracting work out to others is a big no no as far as I'm concerned Mark. My clients employ me, not just anyone to tune their pianos. My reputation depends on the quality the work and quite frankly, there are so few I would be prepared to work u

Phil, I'm highly impressed by your performance. At young age I also purchased the score of this composition and spent a week or two on it before I decided to lay it aside. It was then (and ever since) way outside my capabilities, but the good think

I'm siding with Morodine here in that I feel conclusions are being jumped to regarding the quality of teaching based soley on OP's teacher using John Thompson. A method book really is only as good or bad as the teacher who teaches out of it, I firml

Why do you need to know the typical Split? Is it because of the Boston? Do you want to decide for either the dealer or the current owner what he deserves? Let's make it simple: If you like the piano and can afford it buy itIf you think the piano is

I would begin with a less harsh first phrase then turn to more tortured later. Indeed as said this is not a fugue, really. An invention possibly, but I am not expert enough to say why.

Welcome to Piano World. Quick questions: 1) Where do you live, generally speaking? 2) Why these two pianos in particular? Are they used or new? 3) What's the price difference? 4) What is the average cruising velocity of a coconut-laden swallow?
