Dear all, I am newly registered here, although I have been helped greatly by browsing the forums. I am looking at upgrading our second piano (actually the one we got first), a Yamaha GB1, with something that can work better with our first piano whe

I'm not a tech but I once requested changes in stretch from my tuner on my piano. So yes if you need a particular stretch, request it before he starts tuning I think you can set the ETD to any stretch you like. And it probably has a default. Maybe

They seem right about the frequency http://www.contrabass.com/pages/frequency.html It lists the Bb1 at 14.57Hz as the lowest for the octocontrabass clarinet, indeed 2 semitones below the lowest Bösendorfer imperial. The extended contrabass clarin

There's a bit of a difference having small speakers on a stage piano right in your face (ears), versus a console with a speaker set up often projecting a more encompassing aural experience or aimed at the audience rather than the player. Of course yo

Since your main complaint is about the feel of the action, if you are happy with the sound I wonder what a piano technician says about the possibilities of lightening and improving the action for you? That would be my first step based on what you hav

If the entire piano were being restrung, that could cost 2-3 dollars alone. I am skeptical that there's any profit left in that piano for the dealer, which makes me question whether the piano: is as new as is being advertised is actually being restru

Those are normal Bechstein cracks and are repairable without consequence, as long as it is done by someone experienced in doing this work. They are not really structural. Common on the B which replaced the V, but that is probably a 20th century V th
