I know this sounds odd, but I much prefer the tone of Kawai's higher-end digital pianos to that of any acoustic upright, regardless of brand or series model. (However, I'll admit at the same time that no digital piano can equal the experience of play

Per Google Translate, the big text says they're the supplier to the emperor of Russia and the emperor of Austria The little part just says J. Becker St. Petersburg. This isn't a big name maker, and parts for it may be non-standard and hard to get.

I have read them. Part of the problem discussing false beats is defining what types of "sounds" we hear in a piano string are false. The term "false" is often used broadly to mean any periodic or near periodic fluctuation in volum

Experienced technicians know that when the presenting problems are heavy touch and dull tone quality, the first thing to do is brighten the tone. (often just tuning will do that). Most times, the action will subjectively feel lighter when the tone q

Fairly normal, I would think: 10ths on white notes comfortably in the LH; 9ths and some 10ths (e.g. F#-A) in the RH. "But only hands normal"!

I oversaw a few Roland and Yamaha digital class piano labs at various stops in my college teaching career, and it's a little difficult to answer this question definitively. Amplifiers and speakers seemed to hold up well for the usable lifespan of th

I finally replaced my Technics PX-103 last year. It was 21 years old. I had played it regularly but not heavily, and it mostly still worked fine. But some of the keys were thumping rather loudly, and even though the problem keys could sort of be fixe

Rolling chords, and/or playing the bass note ahead of the melody note, was pretty common in Scriabin's age. Maybe he just assumed people would.
