It is not likely that you will get a good result from this tuner. Once the ivory has warped, it could be permanently deformed, but the only chance to get it to straighten out is to use hot glue with cauls, and that takes experience. Epoxy is not good

Basically get it tuned as often as you can afford. There's no need to get it done say, every week or every month, but you want to try and avoid it starting to howl. I have my piano tuned every 2 to 4 months, and the variance in whether it's 2 mont

Yeah that's true - European pianos really need to be mellower (generalisation I know), otherwise they can sound unbearable (another generalisation, but it's largely my experience). American pianos seem to be able to cope with being bright and sound

Unfortunately that's what it means. It means that the piece is built on the A minor scale. So what are the ramifications of that. Consider the C-major scale (the relative major scale of A minor). It has the same keys (all white notes) yet pi

Maybe the hammers one starts off with are important in terms of the sound being "American" or "European"? I'm not a piano technician, to my ears though there is a distinct difference in sound between the Steinway D and the D-274

I thought you did. But then, you also know that there is a lot of skepticism about whether the current Baldwins are using the U.S. scale designs, or if they are something different. Similarly, there is some debate about whether the Samick Prambergers
