One caveat: You need to have SOME amount of white nail showing to enable you to pluck strings inside the piano, even if it's just a little. You can't cut them all the way back. I made a video for Swiss television a couple of years ago of a piece i

If you decide on Verituner, I recommend you get the iOS app to run on one of the Apple iOS devices—iPhone, iPod touch, iPad. If you don't have one of these devices, you can get the latest (6th generation) iPod touch for under $200.

Well I had a chance to play the S6 for all of 10 minutes at Giza; not sure how much I could glean from that, but nothing really jumped out at me. Now after about 30 seconds playing the Bosendorfer, I literally had chills, it sounded that good. I can

It seems to me BDB cannot accept that wire type differences and scaling using break point information has any basis in science. Well, since there are no absolute, concrete engineering specs for fine tone, we are forced as a profession to develop engi

Unfortunately, the calculations bring me to slightly over 2900$ and that is without shipping and duty fees. So I'd realistically belooking at 3200$ or more. Over here, it sells for 2655$ taxes included.. As you can see, the difference is staggering.

The way the hammers are angled helps produce a center of gravity on the hammer assembly that helps return the hammer from the string, so I would stay with it. I suggest making sure the V-bar is shaped to a true V shape and the contact point for the

Try Guitar Center's online sales. They have a variety of instruments they get in trade. Your local Craig's List is also a possibility.

Why use a laptop when you can just use a tablet or a phone you may already have and which is cheaper and lighter anyway? Also, the choice of software is largely a matter of habit and how you like to work. You will get fine results with free TuneLab

Where can one be looking to try to catch someone selling one of the higher-end digital pianos, used? (I'm interested in the US market, but others are welcome to chime in for each other's benefit.)

TuneLab doesn't need much resources, so it will indeed work on any computer. I recommend an external mic as it's much easier to position/move as needed. The mic doesn't need to be high quality/expensive though.
