The above post aside... I would choose an instrument for your venue that had the widest tonal and dynamic range possible. I love Shigeru for this... they certainly have full resonant lush tone, but what I love about them in particular, is how they f

Nothing better for me than when I'm practicing alone and I just make a piece sing, knowing it was *I* who did that - genuine satisfaction. I do love playing for an audience - I'm an extrovert for sure - but if I never had an audience, I would still

GP...the temporary disruption is something that is often done. The belly will re-equilibrate when the tension is re-applied. Just don't listen to the remaining plain wire strings while the tensions down, because the change in forces on the board coul

Yes, it can - with the new strings it slowly drops out of true pitch, but less so now that it's settling in. I did ask each of the 4 technicians I have had over to confirm that pinblock holds the pins very well. The concern is that the pinblock doesn

I am so sorry your rebuild is not to your expectations. This can be very frustrating. I do have a couple of questions I need answered before I can give you any meaningful advice. Can the piano be tuned to an impeccable state of intonation? Do the tu

That is not how the sostenuto pedal works. Some Chickerings did not even have movable tabs, like early Steinways. The only thing they do differently is that the sostenuto bar will not go down until all keys are released. What you probably need to do

These are the sustenuto tab or lips in a grand piano. Several are sticking in my Chickering grand, so are not engaged by the sustenuto pedal. Protek CLP? If not, what else would be best?
