If you like old Bechsteins, be aware that new ones have nothing in common with them. So, forget the name and see if you like it on its own merits. It is strikingly different than the older ones. You could look for ones from the 60's and later too

That's a model V Bechstein. Cracked plates are usually not a concern for this model. It has little value now, $500 maybe. Restringing will cost more than you think as each string has a loop on it. Action work has to be well considered as the keys

It seems to me that this exercise is somewhat futile for two related reasons : 1) Among all these time signatures in practical use, there would rarely be instances where they would all have "a constant BPM." 2) The tempo is invariably in

Carl Bechstein was probably held in the highest regard by German people as was New York Steinway and Sons by Americans. Bechstein's Golden Age of piano production was from 1900 to the start of WWII. Some say that the more recent Bechsteins have not

I support the recommendation of the Sennheisers. I'd add also the Beyer DT990 Pro 250 ohm headphones. Both of these *can* be found, occasionally, in the $150 range. Not all the time, for sure - have to be watchful and a bit lucky to catch a promo. (

Practice makes perfect - up to your genetic limits. Only a few people can make it to International Master level, let alone Grandmaster level in chess. No matter how much they practice.......
