Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards

Indeed, there are two sensors on the AG's, both non contact but optical. One for the hammer and one for the key. Neither is an on off sensor but a continuous grating that varies light to dark and back as the key and hammer moves. There are physica

Oh great so what I wrote about contactors strips doesn't apply here hopefully, and then you have to find out the reason why it is not set properly. In the probable absence of response from Yamaha support I guess it'll be easier to set manually now it

I believe that state of art Silent pianos use optical sensors. Then there are no sensors strips like usual digital pianos. And no risk of wear. See http://usa.yamaha.com/products/musical-instruments/keyboards/techequippedpianos/ : Quote:Non-Contact

I have tested the Boston UP-126E and Kawai K500 (K600 isn't available here), and despite being smaller, I found the overall tone on the Boston slightly better. Both had very pleasing, full sound with rich bass, and I would imagine the larger UP-132E

I agree with there should be an automatic feature to switch on chromatic M3s-- instead of manually clicking the chromatic M3s an hitting space bar Also would like to see a feature that allows use to use the larger interval checks M17s.

Rebuilders find the best deals on cores to reduce their costs. Are you going to be able to do the same to save yourself some money given the risks you are taking? You can save a lot with an already-restored 7' and it is still a big piano!

One of the greatest sources of confirmation bias in pianos is price. There are less expensive pianos that outperform more expensive but it is not unusual for a client to dismiss a less expensive piano based on its price rather than its actual perfor

Yes, a K200 is a nice instrument and would likely be enough for a decade or forever. However, I think the difference to the K300 is still significant. There is just "more" in bass and discant. For me, the difference from K300 to K500 is not

I see, if it's what I think it is, then you should go ask Yamaha for a firmware update to fix this. Sorry this is a long an circumstanced reply. In acoustic pianos equipped with silent systems, most of the time, you find carbon contactors strips un

While there are always exceptions, a good D rebuild candidate is more expensive than its B equivalent ( year/finish/condition ) It is more expensive to rebuild a D than a B and as variable as Bs can be, Ds are much more variable requiring a rebuild w

A lot depends on your performance parameters. If you want a particular sound and/or touch, you should buy a piano that has already been restored. A quality core piano restored by an experienced and high-quality pro will sound and play well. That sa
