Ed, The dampers are sitting so lightly that some of the strings are sounding sympathetically. There is clearance at the sustain rod. The damper felts have significant grooves as do the hammers. My reluctance to bend the dampers wires was because

When using the iLok manager, we don't have to log in to view or use the licences on the iLok dongle. Then I think you can ask your friend to activate the licence on your iLok dongle, and then you can use it. (Just a deduction, I have never tried) Th

Sorry if this question has been asked before. I did a search but couldn't find much information. Does anyone has any online resource (youtube video, site, blog, etc) that teach how to start playing by ear? Thank you in advance.

Slow way down. Go really slow. Then stop right before the place where the mistake happens and think before playing. Be sure to repeat correctly several times and always end your practice on a correct repetition.

Personally, I don't understand how anyone who is a musician and especially a piano technician can't name a note as Paul described. I always could since I was a child too. I have already said that and I do it instantly as well. Whenever I go up to

I think about purchasing Synthogy Ivory II American Concert with iLok. My Friend is owner of Ivory Grand Pianos II. Is it possible to use his samples on my laptop through my iLok? We could exchange samples each other. Any one tried to do?

Roland c-330 (and c-380) Not seen it in person, but these two specifically emulate pipe organs. The Atelier series is more of a lounge-lizard organ. http://www.roland.com/products/c-330/ Not sure on MSRP for the Classic organs, I think 330 is arou

Try the passage with a metronome, fast, slow, in-between. I've found when I get stuck on a passage, using the metronome forces my brain to work it through correctly.

Although I practice everyday and even zoom in on the part where I make the mistake (misplacing the one finger) and repeat and repeat, I keep on making that same mistake. My teacher tells me to try and feel the keyboard but that seems a bit abstract
