Jump to new posts And my piano wasn't broken.... by FrankCox @ Today at 02:17 AM

So here I am playing chords that require me to move my right hand a long way up the keyboard and then back down, repeatedly. I'm doing this series over and over, trying to get it perfect and really just enjoying the sound, and then all of a sudden a

There's a huge market of people who want to make casual music - and if this works for them, I think that's great and good thing! With one exception, I might take issue with the Hao Staff if you publish Heart & Soul ... :-) A couple of suggestion

There have been posts before attacking Kawai on Piano World and there are usually in the opening post, clear signs of dubious credibility on the part of the writer. The statements are very non specific and there is a lack of detail in the allegati

Quote: . . . You need to do a cut of frequencies lower than 30htz to start, then maybe higher yet up to about 100htz - experiment and find which frequencies are getting a boost in your room. The lowest fundamental frequency on a piano is 27.5 Hz. T

On the other hand, if the piano sounds so bad that you are tempted to have someone do thousands of dollars worth of work on it to sound (maybe) better (whatever that may mean), perhaps you should just get a piano with a sound you prefer.

Both the Kawai and the Yamaha N2 and N3 mount their base speakers into a wooden soundboard. The Yamaha uses the keyboard action from their G series acoustic grand piano. The Kawai uses a modified grand piano action that is not from an acoustic piano.

No, it is not the custom to tip the piano tuner. I have gotten a few when I took an emergency appointment and had to reschedule existing customers. Some customers fix me lunch if I am there at lunchtime.

Thanks for asking. The casting must be removed from the piano and the Capo bar machined to accept upside down agraffes. This also means a new pin-block, strings, plate finish and you might as well make a stellar bridge while you are at it to get the

The Yamaha U-series pianos for the North American Market all all manufactured in Japan. It is likely that some of their parts are made elsewhere, and then shipped to Japan for assembly, though the majorit of the work is Japanese. The same is true of

One technical point that I suggest you get assurances from the technicians who inspect any piano you are considering is regarding any hardness of the Capo D'astro bar. Sometimes Steinway does a case-hardening treatment on the Capo bar. This makes for
