Since your main complaint is about the feel of the action, if you are happy with the sound I wonder what a piano technician says about the possibilities of lightening and improving the action for you? That would be my first step based on what you hav

If the entire piano were being restrung, that could cost 2-3 dollars alone. I am skeptical that there's any profit left in that piano for the dealer, which makes me question whether the piano: is as new as is being advertised is actually being restru

There is no reason why 'handedness' should result in one hand being less dextrous than another, if you 'train' both appropriately. Advanced classical pianists in general have equal dexterity in both hands, while jazzers have much better dexterity i

I just looked at the earlier pictures. For sure, the piano has been altered. The bridges have been changed as they do not have graphite on them, they should be burnished beechwood. As Ed also noted, they have red cloth which is not original also. Th

Those are normal Bechstein cracks and are repairable without consequence, as long as it is done by someone experienced in doing this work. They are not really structural. Common on the B which replaced the V, but that is probably a 20th century V th

On Mac Mainstage is a no brainer - in my opinion you can't get that much sound for that little money no where else. I would recommend to get Mainstage first and see how you like the included piano sound. You can always add something like "The Gr
