Awesome! I'm looking forward to it, hopefully picking it up tomorrow or Tuesday. Another reason I decided to go with it is b/c it sounds like they have a great user community and excellent customer support.

I think you are hearing the plastic dowel that connects the key to the whippen. Have your tech use a teflon lubricant. DO NOT USE OIL OR GRAPHITE! PLEASE!!! It will make things look dirty and can even make things worse.

Those are all excellent pianos and any choice among those would be fine. It does come down to personal preference. Price... Of course price on a used piano is all about condition, but if the Steinway is a run of the mill, average use, 20 year old

When my LightHammer actions get properly broken in; the bass and tenor hammers have nice string grooves. That puts a nice FF bite in the tone. I don't like the sound of a groove any deeper than the string diameter from about note 65 to 88. Many tec
