And no F# in the F major scale either. Sounds like you need to slow way down until you find a speed where you can play it 100% accurately every time. Even if at the beginning you have to stop in between notes long enough to say out loud "D, fin

Our moving experience was much different. The movers would not move it under 50 degrees for fear of damaging the soundboard, they wrapped it in blankets and put it on a trolley. They moved it very carefully over our sidewalk, slowly and gently. They

Hi Cobalt, Enjoy your new piano! I admire what the Lester company did with their spinet. They set out to make a reasonably priced instrument that would also hold up for a few decades. They did that, but now the piano has most likely reached the end
