Hi - it will make an amazing difference if the piano is located in a room with all hard surfaces (thinking of the C7 experience). It's worth checking out one in a different location, as they are a great piano. I've read comments on PianoWorld a few

Yes it's the thumb then 5 transfer that I was asking. I guess I was not holding the key "hard" enough because I was soft on the thumb to have not a loud sound. So I think just push it down soft for sound then hold it down firm until 5 is on

This is not the place to ask about this; it should be in the Tuner-Technician area. If you cannot find any screws or pins, it probably slides forward or back, and you may need to lift at some point.

I used John Thompson's books as a kid. Now, as a returning adult, I'm using Alfred's. I did buy the JT books for nostalgic reasons, and I do play out of them when i'm bored. I think it's good to grab music from different sources. Keeps things int

Do you mean the half note? You'd play it with the thumb, then quickly transfer finger 5 onto it while keeping the key down. I'm not sure exactly what is causing you to double-hit the key without watching you, but some things that could cause it wou

There are different degrees of skill. Just like there are beginning sight readers who can slowly puzzle out notes on the staff, and expert sight readers who can crash through just about anything you put in front of them. A beginning ear player can h

Yeah I'd much rather save up for the MOXF at this point. The MM just isn't appealing. And I know this may sound childish and the abilities of the board are much more important than aesthetics, but let's face it. The MM is ugly, there I said it. But

As an example, there is a music school here in Edmonton that is still using a fleet of HP-237's every day. They were manufactured around the turn of the century (1999-2000) and are still going strong. That's a testament to a quality instrument. 1

This topic comes up occasionally, and I have no idea of the answer: . . . How long does it take a DP to physically wear out? I'm not talking about becoming obsolete -- that's a function of how the market develops, and how one's taste changes. But
