I often use the Blue masking tape to tape the screws inside the casework close to where the screw belongs. Of course, I take digital pictures often so I can reference what the piano looked like before I took it apart.

Jump to new posts Roland PHA Actions: Too Much Up Weight, Causing Arm Strain by portlandmike @ Yesterday at 09:15 AM

I just recently had a drastic change in my opinion of top-of-the-line Roland actions (PHA-4, PHA III, Ivory Feel-S). While I still find them to be extremely responsive, easy to repeat notes, and to have a nice feel as they are depressed, I find that

I played the N1 in the same showroom as the latest Roland, Kawai and Yamaha offerings, and my impression was that it was leagues ahead of everything else. On the downside it is too big, heavy and expensive for me to consider getting at present.

Does anyone accompany floating with different stretch so as to reduce tuning time more by increasing the chance of "meeting up" with the extremes? I'm using P4 windows which provide a very small window in which to tune the treble and I have
