Jump to new posts Something (Anything) Other Than ET by Jon Page @ Yesterday at 06:57 AM

I have come across Ron Koval's endeavors on temperaments and have replaced ET for the majority of my tunings with the Koval 1.3. It is not too far afield from ET and is more of a "Relaxed Fit" tuning-wise, ET with the corners rounded. ET t

Life would be great if I only had to carry my DP and an amp, and when I showed up at gig everything else was provided - but using a table and a big living room chair just doesn't look good. So, I carry around a stand, a piano stool and a bag/suitcase

I'm pretty sure that I don't open it based on your experiences. But if I get too annoyed for the noise, how can I access the felts? Can I just access it by opening the piano and taking the keybed apart or is it required to remove keys to see the felt
