Hi Folks, Ed Foote led a very interesting and informative discussion on temperament on the pianist's forum. And it prompted a question on my part that I thought only you technicians could answer. Who was Chopin's technician? How did he tune Chopin

Well, I don't intend to take any test or exam on typing skills, but I learned to type pretty fast when I was working on my Master's degree. I had to write a lot of research papers and do a lot of typing/writing on the computer. All I can say is tha

Just don't iron ON the piano. I just read *A Romance On Three Legs* last week (immensely enjoyable, by the way), and Glenn Gould did just that one time, resulting in a piano being returned to Steinway with a heat mark on the lid.

Gadzar, your comments are always appreciated; they are more helpful than if you agreed with everything I said. The way you tune, I call "Direct Tuning", listening directly to the interval being tuned. The way the program is set up, I call

Just noticed there's only a $2500 MSRP difference between Yamaha's C3x and C5x at 54,999 and 57,499. Who the heck would get the C3x then - which I think is one of the more popular sizes. The C3x also has a bigger difference between MSRP and SMP whi
