Where do string breakages mostly occur? I would think that the string would be inert at a hitch pin termination point and less likely to break there. But I am no technician... Kind regards, Robert.

This is Labor Day Weekend. That means that Musicians Friend has 15% off. Combine that with ... P155 broken You can combine what you bought with what you have to end up with a good P155. It will cost you $425

I think there's a couple of things to bear in mind in these "finger strength" discussions. As somebody (to assist with other types of exercise and demands) has spent a fair deal of time, specifically addressing grip and "hand" st

Well, you could use my spreadsheet which I offer freely. The fact remains: Increasing wire diameter increases breaking strength. Increasing wire diameter increases tension proportionally. Therefore, percentage of breaking strength remains the same.

Open it up and take a look, leaky or blown capacitors are easy to see, then fix.

I'm not even a piano tech and it sounded so wrong to use WD40 on a string.. BTW, other than maintaining the environment to ideal humidity and temperature, what else can you do to prevent rust from even getting hold of your piano strings?

I don't think you would be happy with a P105 after a P155. Since price has to be keen here then fizikisto makes a good suggestion. There are other alternatives, one example might be a Kawai ES100. Are you able to get to a store and try different sugg

You can pick up a korg kross 61 key keyboard for around $700 (less if you can find it used, or good condition B-stock). It weighs like 10 lb. and can be powered by batteries. Yeah, it's not going to fit in a backpack, but it's something that woul
