Bill, I have not used pitchlock couplers. I am wondering if anybody has successfully made some clips that works in the same way?

Another prelude on my Shigeru. I think the mic and camera is better at the treble end. Comments welcome. I'm a relative beginner of 3 years. http://youtu.be/noreQJFXHW8

Here's a recording of me and my Shigeru playing one of my favourite little preludes. I've only been playing a few years and I know I'll get better with more experience. Comments welcome. http://youtu.be/3CJQb6T4w5g

Is it possible that lifting the damper tray is jostling parts of the action involving this note due to stiction? Does it happen only if the sustain pedal is depressed rather quickly? Does depressing the sustain pedal cause this note's key, hammer,

Goodness me, this has come around so quickly. I was hoping I'd have the raindrop prelude down in time, but no way that will be ready in a month. I got another Chopin piece in mind that I heard in the last recital. I can play it reasonably well, but

I've got the same size piano approx. I rarely open the lid when playing. It could be worth checking where the sound is being emitted. With the piano completely closed (incl music desk), I'd suspect that most sound would be emitted by the soundboard

Perhaps not, but you cannot get a piano to plays well and sound good without voicing and regulating, no matter how good the acoustics of the room are.

Contrary to what you say, I've found that trying to use iH to aurally tune รก temperament can lead you to tuning errors. All the sequences I've studied in my learning days told me to tune a 4:2+ A3A4 octave! Being a beginner I couldn't see that was

Kurt, It's true the sound has to go somewhere, but in this case it is getting absorbed by things in the room. The 100dB may be shouting straight up at the prism-like ceiling and reflecting back to me. Using the foam, the foam absorbs that energy as
