Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
Jump to new posts Re: Help identify the piano action by EssBrace @ Today at 05:12 AM

I assume it is an earlier version of what is pictured as PHA-alpha 2. Roland has a number of earlier versions of their cheaper action. I also believe many earlier Roland actions were made in Italy - quite frankly I suspect by Fatar back in the day, a

Yes, I found that thread earlier. There are similarities to the Alpha II but the placement of sensor board is different. In my board it's flat, not slanted.

Paul, Alcohol/water mix does swell key bushing felt. However, in my experience, if the old felt was already very worn (which it normally is - otherwise you wouldn't be asking the question), then the result of the re-swelling is ... a hard bushing th

The CP series is a pro keyboard, so even though it's older, it will be adequate for you to start on. You can always hook it up to a computer for updated sounds. As for lessons, that depends on your goals. If classical playing is your main goal, I'd

Especially needling key stick front and balance mortises, if that was meant. That is just butchering. I agree with Rafael. Best to do the job properly if you want to project a professional image and have a long lasting repair. Why not do it properly

Maybe it is just the piano you are playing on. I played this on Steinways without changing the pedal, and didn't have too much trouble keeping the dynamics down. It helped to not let the keys return up to the top, but only let them up enough to be
