To correct my statement from above: the 535 has technically a better action than the 525, although its NOT about having three sensors, the 525 already had that. The 535 has GH3X, the 525 the previous generation GH3 (without X).

JeepnHeel, welcome here. I'm sorry to hear about your wife's diagnosis. I think with the recommendation to exercise fingers and your wife's interest in piano, it's a perfect solution. There will be a lot of people here in the digital forum much bet

I looked through the Op. 2/1 at some point. I had a similar reaction: Beautiful, manageable. My problem with it is that it just seems excessively sentimental in the most gloomy sort of way. It is unbalanced because of this. I can't imagine a situatio

Fantastic is a good description of his playing but in my book that's not a good thing. Interpretation also requires substance.
