Wow, immaculate instruments. Model A, 5'8" ($37k), and a model BB, 7' ($50k). The 7' was voiced a bit too mellow and dark for my taste, so I ended up playing the A more. The were both very easy to trill on, like butter for lack of a better

@Andrew - I really enjoy your videos. It's really helping me see how they should be played (speed, etc). The Alfred's CD I have, play other instruments playing the songs in addition to the piano so it's really hard to hear how the piano notes should

Doremi, I'd say it shouldn't take more than a day. Depending on how scattered your user files are though, if you only have your files in the Documents, Pictures, and Videos folders, 30-40 Gb of copying to an external hard disk takes one to two hours,

I have one broken, threaded, butt plate on a 1900 upright, Ivers Pond Piano, the broken plate is off to the side: Would this part from Schaff Piano work? Reading Reblitz, it appears this was somewhat a standard part until the 1940s.

Indeed you do. Been working on rescaling a piano this evening using the Paulello wire types. There are 5 but we will typically use most M and O, with some 1 in the low tenor. I have use XM for the top 8 notes on a Bechstein C. That's where the
