Isaac, Jon, thanks for your input. Def needs voicing.......did not have it done due to my purchasing of the AR. The plan is to use this Duo-Art mechanism in the AR.....voicing on this Weber is a pain...the Ampico system is just like a normal piano.

Recently, at the age of 62, one week from 63, I have started experiencing slight pain in my right ear at the piano. Also, when I play the car stereo, it can happen. I play on a 1950 Baldwin Model M Baby Grand, and the hammers have gotten quite har

Sadly, beginners looking for the best action in a portable form have to choose between emptiness of the VPC1 and 999 knobs of the MP11. (I tend to believe that any wooden action is better than any plastic one.)

One other point I think worth mentioning. Having a child who's grown up through early years with hearing issues, and all the consequences of that, has probably made me a bit more acutely aware and wary of how precious good hearing is, and how people

It sounds nothing like Erik - not the melodic line, the harmonies, the piano figuration. If you want a 'classical' composer that has a slight similarity, it would be Michael Nyman, though even so, no-one would mistake this stuff for Nyman either.

Nothing wrong with the Yamaha B3. There are however a lot of other choices out there and why not take your time a try a few. Kawai and Hailun come to mind but for a bit more a Charles Walter console is really especially nice. Sometimes you can fin

Are dB meters measuring properly with the sharp transients of a piano tone? The first few milliseconds of the sound have the most dB's in them. If the dB meter averages over say half a second, they may be way too low with the peak volume.
