I don't believe ETDs can measure to the accuracy some of you are claiming. They only measure the frequency of one partial and no two strings have the exact same inharmonicity. I have experienced the effect of clean versus coloured unisons, but the

A443, that's a lot of knowledge! Amazing pro stuff! I neglected the hold part considering it very transient and insignificant for piano tone. Your advice about flattening the hammer shows it does matter. I will tinker and see the effect. BTW, as pr

I agree with Rafael. We always lift the keys way beyond that hieght to remove them completely from the key bed to do different things like clean under the keys, add or remove punchings, etc. It does not damage the key. Also, we lift the key to chec

I've probably mentioned before that I give a monthly recital for colleagues & acquaintances, playing on an ancient 85-key 6-foot C.Bechstein (c 1900). It has a lighter action than my V-Piano, as well as shallower key dip than modern pianos. Onc

Interesting. Seems to me that DP makers have the ideal opportunity to vastly exceed quality of their actions way beyond that which is achievable on an acoustic due to practical considerations regarding their operation.

Composers damning other composers is nothing new. Mozart on Clementi, Brahms on Wagner (and vice versa)...all the way to Boulez's damning of any contemporary composer who wrote tunes .

Until Ron Koval's temperaments surfaced, to introduce someone to WT's you'd use either the Moore or Broadwood's Best. As 'mild' as these are, they produced some 3rds and 5ths which didn't settle well with my customers. After trying many non-ET's, I e

Could you tell more about this specific Steinway K52? If looks and so on are a factor you might consider a (rebuilt) Steinway Victorian upright as well. Don't know how they are sound and action wise compared to the K52 but they sure do look beautiful
