Johann that is so sweet!!! Yellow roses was my dad's favorite. I prefer the big cabbage roses or antique roses. Those roses are featured in artwork by Fantin LaTour. Check him out, beautiful!!!

I agree with the piano teacher that a student can reach a point where going to an acoustic piano is a must. But, since you have gotten past that thought process, let's move on. I am not as much in agreement about getting a baby grand, vs a superior

Problem of twanging note solved by voicing - however now there is an octave with a rather hard sound (it improved - or I got used to it - after an hour of playing). Now technician inspection beckons...

Quote:I also just read in another post that a 48" vertical was often a better choice than a 52". Comment was made that the 52" often has bass that overwhelms the treble. Not if you carefully select and buy the right 52" upright.

If I were to guess, an electrolytic capacitor is going or gone, but whether I'm right and which one it is needs at the very least a visual inspection. Depending on how handy you are, you may want to open the keyboard and look at whether any caps have

Jump to new posts Re: Soft pedal problem after tuning. by Bob @ 05/28/16 02:40 PM

The O.P. said the issue started after the piano was tuned, and happens only when the soft pedal is depressed. Boston grand pianos often have a heavy touch to begin with. I would imagine the tech adjusted the soft pedal at time of tuning.

Its a capcitor. The smoothing condenser. Had one go on an amplifier 40 years ago on a valve amp. They wdre pretty much all valve amps then. If you replace it or them in the case of streo (are both speakers affected?) It should be resolved. Alleg

I can reach an uncomfortable 9th. Staying relaxed with long passages of octaves is very difficult for me and is something I'm working on right now. If only I had another 1/4 inch of finger length. Sigh.
