Chickering had the prototype "modern" piano sound going before Steinway. Their bass tone is often superior, the trebles almost always not- by switching to quartered maple bridges that are crown conformed and getting the bridge heights tall

I know of three flat-strung grands made in the past century. All of them are rare, and I have only seen one in person. I do not think it is a panacea. The problem that many pianos have in the bass to tenor transition is that the tenor strings are se

Thanks Marty. This thread is very useful to me. Pianos are SO different and a lot more expensive to buy and repair. I'm getting the impression pianos are fairly adjustable in action and sound. As long as this adjustment comes at a dealer's expense be

It's always time to look for a different teacher. Every person has a different approach, and it is best to know as many approaches to music as possible: that is how you will really learn what is going on and be constantly challenged. Back when I was

Inconsistency between registers is one of the many stupidities of over-stringing. Other than marketing (i.e., larger piano in a smaller case), I have yet to recognise any significant benefit of such a design. Mostly, it causes headaches and problems.

What you are talking about is being done everyday by a number of rebuilders. It's called rescaling. String diameters and speaking lengths, wrap diameters, waste lengths, etc. etc. are entered into scaling programs or spreadsheets. Things like inhar

This is a tough question for a student to answer, but the teacher in general should be the one to realize when it's time to pass a student along to someone more advanced. Some don't always recognize this, or worse, they need the money and so they hol
