We are looking for a digital piano for my father and we are currently considering the Kawai KDP90. We are looking for a piano that is maximum $1300 and probably more like $1000, with the emphasis on good piano sound and feel. Extra bells and whistles

dewster, those are renders using the full version of the Addictive VSTi. I got the virtual instruments really as a reference to understand how good the Roland sound is - sometimes the Roland SuperNatural piano sounded a little uncanny to me, or metal

yup seeker... stability-wise, being the pianist you tune for, you have the advantage of getting brutally honest feedback, in real-time, daily. Lots of techs don't get the benefit of that real-time feedback.

While it is possible that practicing a piano with a very heavy action might improve finger strength(Serkin supposedly always practiced with the lid closed and made his students do the same), it is not true that practicing on such a piano will allow a

In spite of the piano having been maintained, I can see a few possibilities in your description. 1. You state that the hammers have been replaced, but are you certain the shanks and flanges are new as well? If not, the flanges are most likely gumme

This is a fairly complicated subject but a Steinway L with a 68 gram downweight is wrong. As Ed pointed out, a likely culprit is incorrect Steinway factory action parts with the wrong geometry and/or weight. It is likely that the piano has the orig

BusyWait, did you run the full or demo version of Addictive Keys through the DPBSD? It doesn't seem to be looped but it is clearly stretched, which is kind of weird. I'm guessing the full version, as XLN says the demo is limited to 4 octaves. Typi

If the touchweight after 4 or 5 hours of regulation work is 65-75 g, then there's something else wrong here involving the parts themselves. I would not find that an acceptable solution for the 3-5 hour practice days I have when preparing recitals.

The tools alone and the additional parts that will be necessary afterward (dampers etc.) when one realizes how worn out they are, will quickly run in to what it would cost for a professional. Stringing a piano is not as easy as putting piano wire on
