According to the US Patent office, a patent lasts 20 years. It is complicated by international trade rules and other things, but Steinway generally has no claim on their patents. Has Steinway even submitted a single patent in the last 20 years? It

All modern pianos are too loud for the home. When I went from a 5'3" grand to a much better quality 6' grand, the latter was actually less loud. That's because the better the piano, the more dynamic range it has, and the more you could control

This thread has reminded me that many years ago I tuned some kind of autoharp-like device, maybe an 'Omnichord', using what's called a Star clock key. A Star clock key has various size diameters of clock key radiating our from a central hub. Whatev

Being a beginner, I still find it amazing how much cognitive capacity I have to spend on the playing. I am better now, but at the beginning I do not thing I had space cycles to listen to myself :-) Had nothing to do with the sound...

I have my 7'4" in an 11 x 11 room. The above formula suggests a 4'4" baby grand (is there such a thing?). My piano doesn't sound TOO loud, perhaps because the room has two arches opening to the living room and to a hall with carpet on the

Make sure you take your own headphones, most shops do not have really good headphones to lend and the acoustics are often not optimal. You'll probably have no issues to feel the differences in action if you already play. Play something which require

FWIW -- If you Google: . . . walk don't run ventures lead sheet you'll find some free (and some paid) piano arrangements, guitar tablatures, and lead sheets. Those might give you a running start to learning the piece.

To be fair to Roland, this kind of problem could happen to _any_ 8-year-old circuit board. If you think Roland's service center's repair-cost estimate is out of line (and I agree that it's a lot of money), find a local musical-instrument repair sh

As I recall, autoharps are not chromatic, so equal temperament is not necessary, but I do not remember which keys they play in so I cannot remember which intervals should be favored.
