As already indicated, it depends, on a number of factors:- - On age. - On condition (Most importantly!) - If it has been refurbished, and/or recently regulated. - When it was last tuned, and especially if it holds good tune. - And to some extent in

Welcome Vlasta, I started recording down the treble side at about shoulder height, to see my hands. Then I thought, the world is full of "how to" piano videos. So I found MS Moviemaker. I can take a folder of beautiful still shots, and drag

I've played a lot of K uprights. I owned a K-2 and have played a lot on the K-15, 3, and 5 at lessons. The K-15 is no frills for sure. But it's consistent in tuning and regulation. Sounds really nice when my teacher plays it. My K-2 was a very good

This might seem silly, but how do you know how to set your metronome if there's no count at the top? I guess I'm used to orchestra music where it'll say quarter note = 120 or something, but in these books there's nothing. To learn a piece I've been p

I'll weigh in here. For a smaller budget, the Kawai CN35. For a slightly larger budget, the Kawai CA97. Best of luck in your search.

Well I'm pretty biased in Yamaha's favor but only because my wife and I tried several uprights from Kawai and Yamaha, and we simply preferred the touch and sound of the Yamaha. The P22 upright was very impressive for the price; very close in perf

Having read all the posts here, I think that it really comes down to which piano you prefer. If you can't decide then in this case it's safe enough to go for the cheaper one - they're pretty much the same quality in terms of build and materials. A

If you practise on a light piano and have to perform on a hard piano, you will have to adjust oftentimes during the performance, whereas if you practise on a heavy piano and have to perform on a light piano, it will be a cakewalk. The real hard touc

Hi, sorry to be a little OT there but another way of seeing tuning is to consider an ordering of partials as if there where no iH, and enlarge the octave so the iH is a little taken in account. Then the "suppleness" of tone will tend to gr
