A really good thing that some piano dealers do is offer a rental digital or acoustic piano for a certain amount of time. You make monthly payments for 6 months and at the end of the 6 months, you can use your rent payments toward the purchase of an i

If I use a certain pair of ear buds I have, I hear a 'buzz' in the G above middle C (G4?) and very slightly with the keys surrounding G. The sound seems to have almost a spring-like quality to it. It is a repeatable phenomenon, but only with those pa

For the fun of it, I re-analysed the posted M3s using the more traditional Hann window instead of Rife-Vincent 6. Here is the comparison from F3 to F4: Hann R-F-6 06.75 06.55 06.75 06.76 07.25 07.32 07.50 07.60 08.00 08.02 08.50 08.88 09.73 09.14
