Hello, This is my first post here. I found a second hand Yamaha CP5 that is being sold by someone in my city for an extremely low price (about 60% less than store price). He says it's 2 years old and in perfect condition. I've tried it out for a sho

Whizbang, I don't know some of those, but Jingle Bells and Silent Night are not Jingle Bells or Silent Night. Just being able to sound in many different styles is amazing of course.

With the note itself I meant the sound generated by the strings of that note, from the moment they are struck by the hammer. This as opposed to noise generated by the keyboard or action, before or after hammer impact. (Examples of which I had descr

a) Probably. I think all it does is set the string in place a little better. b) The high string(s) are muted better than the other(s). Match the hammer to the strings by filing.

You would be surprised what some pianists can do. It's not Christmas, but on another site, a pianist offered to play a Christmas carol of your request in any style you requested, pretty much as soon as you requested. It's fair to say that these were
