Hakki, You're being a troll. You asked what people thought, they answered. It seems that most of the tuners here were not as willing as you to blame the tuner, and shared with you their thoughts as to why the piano was behaving that way. You don'

I ended up with the On Stage WS8550. It is not wobbly at all. In fact I am very pleased with it. I have the keyboard at the appropriate height and it is stable. I plan to make a custom stand for it - mostly for appearance. But I am not in a ru

dcnm50, About the Dampp-Chaser system, it is the environment in your home which is of concern. It would be best to purchase a hygrometer and check out the conditions in your home. That is the only way to tell. Going from a controlled environment

David, The accuracy of modern HVAC systems is what affects the stability in the long run. Wood does not respond very quickly and when the temperature and RH are being controlled in a tight range, the result is a stable piano. That is provided by t

This bridge is too far gone. The effort that it would take to salvage it would be better spent replacing it. Why would you consider ever doing a Mickey Mouse fix on anything? It's never worth it. Tim

Because no one is an inhuman robot, you can't perform the same way every time. As something changes when you perform a piece, you will have to shape the music around it. For me in other words, spontaneity is the natural consequence of simply being

I like when a pianist can create a convincing interpretation and connect with the audience. Whether s/he does this with a lot of preparation or at sudden whim doesn't matter to me as much. (I'm sure most pianists do some of both.)

Ya know Keith, you're not going to get a lot of sympathy from us. It may feel like the end of the world, but I'm sure you will struggle through. If it's a Steingraeber, my sympathy lessens. It's a great time to revisit the Baroque and Classical

That's about right for a full regulation. I can't overstate how much of a difference it can make in the experience of playing a decent instrument. However, I am kind of curious why a nice Kasai that's only ten years old would need this kind of work.
