Well, the week isn't finished yet but I can see where it's leading to. Already on the 2nd day of what seemed like an awkward fingering for the L.H. comes quite natural now. The ear has learned a scale run up to the highest E and down, together with o

I hate it when someone removes the top of these pianos, probably because they did not know about the prop stick. Putting the top back on is a real pain! If you are not strong enough to open the top, you are not strong enough to tune the piano, so you

Yes, that big, one-piece front lid/top was heavy and cumbersome, although it did have the prop-stick and the hinge-pins if you wanted to remove it altogether. I've seen some owners of the Baldwin 243 studio model cut their own holes in the front pa

Mark, Sorry it was indeed "Double String Unison". I should have checked! On further thinking about your rubber band video and it's analogy to NSL tension I am wondering if using Protek on agraffes or bars is a bad thing. I used to do th

Assembling outside the western world with imported parts is no different to Assembling in Europe or USA by skilled immigrants. Human hands do what human hands can do. Who design the piano makes a huge difference.

Johan, If you want to learn to play by ear, by all means, pursue that goal. Nonetheless, there was something else in your initial post that caught my eye and that hasn't been discussed yet, I think: You wrote that you finish a piece and start a ne

Just visited a newly rebuilt grand, and found that the tech has used tallow on a brand new set of rollers. Needless to say, it needs to be removed. Not a task I've had to do before - what's the best method other than fitting a new set of rollers? T

Hi Ian, I'm happy the video helped. For anyone else interested, it can be found at http://howtotunepianos.com/podcast-3/ I don't recall what the Dual String Octave method is. I have named a method Double String Unison. Maybe that's what you meant.

I think it's pretty common among adults to want to somehow "break free" of the tedious task of learning one (or a few) little piece at a time, perfecting it and then forgetting it to go on to the next one, and so on... Who wouldn't like to
