Sometimes pianos that sit idle for a long time can develop stiffness but usually if sitting in garages. However I have not seen this in those Kawais. and many do sit in houses for a decade or more after the kids lose interest. Your's is from the 1980

I know that both of the VSTs have tuning control. My question was about A = 432Hz strictly. Do you know as a user with experience? I have Nord piano 2. There is 431.9Hz or 432.2Hz, No 432Hz - impossible for tuning. BTW - I can't find manual operation
