Jump to new posts Re: Which top note sounds more in tune? by bellspiano @ Today at 08:05 AM

General preferred fingerings for beginners: - Avoid fingers 1 and 5 for black keys is possible - Avoid fingering that stretches your hand where possible - Choose the fingerings that "flow" with the passage and the hand shapes you are apply

Frame cracks can be repaired, fairly cheaply. To repair frame cracks in the context of a full restoration only adds a few hundred pounds (UK) to the over all price. I suppose it depends where the cracks are and how much money you have to spend.

First, I think it is the best thing Casio has ever made. That said, it is not up to snuff with the Yamaha hybrid technology... yet.

Several companies in the past made pianos non specifically. As BDB mentioned, the sales organization could then put their name on them. General rule of thumb is that they were the cheapest things on the market.

Some pianos were made that way, so that dealers could put their own name on them. Many of those had the name on the fallboard removed when they were refinished. They are lower quality pianos. You should avoid them.
