He's one of those "under the radar" pianists who can be very, very good. You know how Richter said that he never felt the need to learn a piece that he'd already heard done as well as it could possibly be done? I had a similar experience

Hi pmh, I'm so torn between the CA65 and the Kawai VPC1. The CA65 felt fantastic and to be honest I didn't feel much difference between the action on the VPC1 and the CA65. My only worry is that I would hate my playing ability to be hindered just by

Hey, I'm a little late, but I have the Momentum over-ear (the bigger ones), the IE8 in-ear and the HD 600 Sennheiser headphones and just tried them all on my Roland HP203 DP. The Momentum aren't really suited for it, being closed headphones they cut

Why is it that every time I see stuff about transposing instruments, I feel like I've wandered into some impenetrable fog? Which is weird, because I've actually played some of those instruments. But somehow the concept doesn't quite settle correctl

Hi JoeCPiano, I'm also struggling to decide which digital piano to go for. For me the most realistic touch is provided by the Yamaha Avant-Grand's N2 and N3. I actually prefer the N2 but it is so expensive and for a similar price you could go for an

Thankyou, I have just managed to have a good play on a CA65 and I think it's fantastic. I can't believe the difference in touch between my CP33 and it.

Don't worry about keyboard vs piano at the moment. At the early stages its more about the learning how to read music, rhythms and the general co ordination between brain and figures in both hands. Later when you get better a piano would be ideal. It

Practicing the piano can be traumatic on the fingers, especially if you're repeating something over and over again. Depending on how your fingers and nails are shaped, and the way you play, you can get anything from skin cracks on the fingertips t

Ed , certainly lighter strings may have less effect on all that mass of the bridge and soundboard. I think what I listen to is the result of the coupling in terms of spectra evolving in time. Once differentiated from beats , false or real we can cha

IMHO, the very best digital piano touch I've never played is Yamaha's Avantgrand N3 (I didn't try N2 and N1). Second to this, it's the NU1. Then, in another league but also very good, are the Kawai wooden actions. I like a lot the feeling of the CA 6

When I think of it, the coiler in the piano would be better used with a pneumatic tool to turn the pin. Anyway on new blocks. Outside coilers make another tool to take in hand, so it does not go in the efficiency direction.
