Thanks, barbaram and AimeeO. I will be out of town this weekend, but I should only have to miss piano on Saturday 7/26 unless my brother in law happens to have one (highly doubtful). I'll play before we leave tomorrow and hopefully arrive on Sunday

If the subfloor is 3/4" "plywood" and not "oriented strand wood", (also known a "beaver barf", thank you Rod Verhnjack), it will support a grand piano no problem. The flexing you are noticing when you walk on the fl

(Uh, the program order might have to be changed a teeny bit to allow for the missing pieces. I'm looking at possibly leading off with the Inventions so as to still have Bach at the beginning.)

Nobody has mentioned "Lounge Lizard", either. It has a whole bunch of Wurlitzer presets, and it's fully programmable. The cost of a PC, a MIDI-to-USB converter, and either Pianoteq or Lounge Lizard (each of them model both Rhodes and Wurl

In my mind I've named the guy on the right Joseph Fourier... Doesn't seem to be a particularly rapid beat rate, but I'm sure he's getting his point across.

Ed, I think the case in the pictures is all original. I have thought about how to cut a ex-player down to a normal case. It would take making a new key-bed. the lid would be a problem because the split is too close to the front. This would mean a ne

The piano should not splinter 3/4 inch plywood, cross bracing should help with the bounciness though. I assume the added pillar going under a support beam? I would have thought the cross bracing itself would have done the trick, or at least have be

A443 did not say excellent regulation will make all grand actions feel the same. He said it would make them much more controllable and consistent. Why do you want to put meaning into words that is not there? This trait makes life more difficult. Wh

BDB, I don't see the significance of your wave model to pianos. It seems incomplete. The partial tones are there as a result of simple harmonic motion in a somewhat less than perfectly elastic two dimensional medium with somewhat elastic boundary c

If you're a beginner, you might want to hold off on this one. It isn't easy, and keeping track of four sharps, plus accidentals, plus double sharps tossed in here and there, plus the things like you pointed out here, may bring you frustration. It's

@Goomer Piles: According to the OP he can play Liebestraum (I assume no. 3), yet he somehow hasn't grown out of calling classical pieces "songs." That combined with the claim of playing a 20 hour gig just screams troll to me.
