Why are you stressing out over three kids? You can make a general announcement to the 3 kids' families that you will no longer be teaching on Fridays. And then move them to a different day of the week. I think that would be better than to reschedu

Hi integris, I know exactly how you feel as I have done exactly this research as you some months ago. I own a Steinway Grand and also use digital pianos mainly due to their variety of sounds (also vintage E-pianos) and MIDI capabilities. Nevertheles

In my original question, I was not only asking for advantages with respects to the higher pitch itself, but also if there were advantages in tone or long term stability or elsewhere with having higher string tension and more tension on the soundboard
