Oh, and since most DP's still use a physical sensing mechanism, measuring the hammer velocity directly would like have a large impact on the hammer speed, becoming less reliable and requiring fine regulation. By measuring on the heavier and stronger

I think you are keeping your cards too close to your chest. How does it sound in terms of what? It's the best Kimball Whitney spinet I've ever heard. Not very good Steinway D. I think the piano has potential. To a significant degree tone can be e

This discussion is verging on the "religious argument": . . . "Is the velocity of the hammer, when it strikes the string, . . . the only thing that determines the tone of the note?" I have an opinion on this question, but I won'

The felt on the business end of the hammers wears away over time and leaves "string grooves". It also becomes compacted. Reshaping the hammers involves removing the action (a pain in a drop action spinet), and filing the hammers with sandpa

I don't think it's for lack of importers... the official Kawai US site show the CA97 and CA67 as the only two Concert Artist pianos. It appears Kawai has made a decision not to supply the CA17 to the US market. Which I find to be sad... it's an exce
