Jump to new posts Re: Kawai GX-2 or Estonia 168 by Stubbie @ Yesterday at 07:06 PM

An inch or so of the GX-2 length is due to the longer keys/keysticks Kawai put on the GX series, so the length difference between the two pianos isn't quite the 5 inches the specs would indicate.

I finally located an arrangement that is neither fabulously complicated nor mind numbingly simple; in other words it is at a suitably challenging level for me. It looks okay, is rather long, and has several key changes. So I've started and hope to

Jump to new posts regulating/reconditioning an old piano by Eric NYC @ Yesterday at 07:00 PM

I recently got an 1893 Steinway upright, about 54" tall. It's in generally good condition. However a number of the notes need adjustment. Some notes have uneven touch (harder than they should be), a couple of notes ring (damper doesn't fully se

Be forewarned: there are a lot of ragtime pieces out there. Mr. Stubbie got sucked in and has played over 140 of them. My favorites are: Solace: A Mexican Serenade (Joplin) recording Valse Venice (James Scott) Graceful Ghost Rag (William B

The fire itself was not huge but the soot/smoke damage was. I bought a Vose & Son 5'1" baby grand in December so that myself and my children could learn. Well, my contractors kept saying it just had to be wiped down and that it was okay to p

I should add a disclaimer for anyone who might have listened. Certain passages sound overpedaled, but that's the way that my professor and my accompanist were telling me to play. They insisted that in a large hall, lots and lots of pedal is needed.

Jump to new posts Re: Why do high-end Casio pianos have less tones than low end? by David Farley @ Yesterday at 06:27 PM

My neighbor bought a CDP-230 from Costco, and I played it a little. It's pretty nice. Just as a point of interest. With the Casio PX-5S you get fewer voices overall than the CDP-230, but you can edit those voices, and there's a lot of activity on th

I agree with Bennevis -- Pletnev is an amazing pianist, though some of his interpretations are idiosyncratic. I DO like the Pletnev Scarlatti set, and I also enjoy his Scriabin. I'm also a big fan of almost everything recorded by Ivan Moravec -- es

Another previous award winner from this competition said there was "no warm welcome back" to Julliard after the win(s). (Maybe only refer to the reception rendered by fellow students, not from the school itself :-)

Hey Possum280 How did you perceive the acoustical playing noise of the keybed? I played the PX150 a while back, and found the action very nice, but a bit too thumpy up AND down. (I'm used to the Kawai ES100 which is very quiet overall) I was just

I would go bigger and Chinese at that price point if I had the space. But the Kawai and Estonia are both excellent choices. I echo the sentiments above that you should go with what sounds the best to you and feels the best to your kids. Good luck!
