Software modeling is fine but it's not relevant to the question. The question is - is there any technology that can replace/update the technology of piano strings in an acoustic piano. A technology that can replace it in full measure with all the w

There's some really fun Alkan, but in general I don't think it has the depth that other composers have. You would think he would be played more often than he is because of all the bombastic pieces he wrote. Perhaps because his music is extremely tech

I use my senses to test the hardness BDB. I can tell by the sound and feel of a file cutting the metal. The V-bar should be soft enough that the string can self machine a groove that is about 1/3 string diameter.
