I have a 1927 Bechstein that I rebuilt - love it. You've had it a month? It's going to adjust to the environment in your house and there will be subtle changes in how it sounds. You said reconditioned, but not rebuilt. Do you have a list of what wa

Can anyone advise on a good type of felt or cloth to use for the una corda stop on the left side of a grand action? I don't think I have ever seen this particular piece being called out by name in literature or distributor catalogues.

That is disappointing for you as a well restored 1923 C Bechstein should be a very fine piano. Rebuilt pianos usually have new strings which take a year or so to settle completely and that could be causing the problems you mention with the treble so

I would suggest magnetic signs on your vehicle. A rolling billboard! A website is a must these days. There are places you can set one up for free.

Nobody here is talking about "portable keyboards", which have spring-loaded, very light actions. We are discussing 88-key, weighted-action "digital pianos". . . . Some don't have cabinets, and are easy to move around -- "sl

Go to your nearest Kawai dealer and play CA67 vs some of the K-series uprights. Even the entry level K2 already feels much more responsive, nuanced and easy to control. And the price difference is about 1.5. I don't think this is a huge difference an

I'm pretty sure that all of the listed devices will run at 96 kHz / 24 bits. I suspect that's enough for most people, most of the time. The problem isn't in Audacity -- 32 bit, floating-point range is plenty. The problem is (as ThomasB says) quan
