I think my main issue with the strip for temperament tuning is this: You finish with the strip in and are very happy with the results of your carefully tuned temperament. Then when the unisons are pulled in you find some drift. But it is not as clear

I think moving the chair back a little is the most important change you should consider. Because of your back problem it seems like not leaning back in the chair is not a possible change at present. I don't think your posture is poor at all. Althoug

Jump to new posts Should I buy used small upright or big upright? by thomas81 @ 01/30/15 11:04 AM

Just want to ask to choose a small piano and big piano. I have visited to used piano shops and tested the piano for Yamaha U1 and small piano Yamaha M108 over 30 years old selling at 3.8k and 2k Singapore dollars. Both of the condition are good and s

I had a Kawai K6 that was a very nice upright. The K8 would probably be even better. The Charles Walters seem great, too. Like some others, I agree that a large, quality upright is better than a baby grand, at least sound wise. Due to physics, a

Soundboard area and length of bass strings are not the most important factors to tonal and action quality. The important part is where they place the bridges, or whether or not they purposely blocked off an area of soundboard that was sucking energy

Thanks Hendrik for opinion. That's what I heard that Kawai has a better keyboard. But samples from CFX and Bösendorfer probably made me more convinced. In total, I'm still not 100% determined. I think even on the Kawai C 15. Hard to choose

This thread, by implication, is about the final stages of a tuning on a stable piano. How one gets to that stability that will accept a fine tuning is not really the issue. The self same checks and balances are used by all responsible tuners whiche
