If you are in the US the K-300 will be a Japanese-made instrument while, as you point out, the Yamaha is made in Indonesia, the former having a reputation for better build quality. There certainly should be a significant difference in price as the l

I stand by my original post, as to new pianos, but the recommendations for used are compelling. If looking for a little "heavier" action, my personal opinion is that Kawai is generally a bit heavier than Yamaha, although feel can vary from

I have cleaned a set of wound strings by soaking them in a solution of EDTA. They came out clean as new and sounded good. No need to replace them. They were wound with copper.

I've put a drill in a vise with a wire brush attachment and then ran the strings through, sideways, so the bristles get into the grooves.

yes - bit confusing of Roland to not have a more distinct name for the fully modelled engine eh -_- And sampling has more realistic timbre - tonally, the modelling wins hands down ;P

Yes we are =S And when considering buying second hand acoustics, that period might turn out shorter - or chosen to be avoided and as an excuse to go buy another acoustic ^^

Thanks for the well wishes pianofan1017! I am thinking of taking two lessons a week between now and the exam, just to have to time to practice the oral, sight reading, and technique under pressure. The pieces will be OK, but I want to ace the other s

Greetings, What many of us have done is to either dramatically loosen the string and then yank it up to pitch, or remove the string, twisting it into a coil then straightening it out, or soaking it in various treatments, ranging from alcohol to

For sure Chopin etude 10/1. Each measure is basically one chord so memorization is not hard. Plus you kind of have to look at your hands to whole time, so memorization becomes a necessity.

Blüthner is the only brand that uses 'aliquot' stringing , a fourth string that isn't strucked , but resonates with the other 3 strings and is tuned in unisono. Does that mean Blüthner has the richests and most sparkling highs of any grand piano ?

Well, I of course don't know if there actually were two separate YDP-101 models -- one with an 'S' and one without. Or if the "AE" in this case is identical to the PF80.

I didn't enjoy them. But I know loads of people do. I've learnt a lot more Mozart since and matured rather a good number of decades .... perhaps I'll drag them out tomorrow and give 'em another spin, and let you know. But definitely, first time round

Hi ICW, at the risk of extending this thread longer than it should run for, and to answer your original question, YES, from my personal experience, ego can be a barrier to learning. For example, I come to this piece with a preconception of how it sou

I've searched the forum as well as I can but can't find much in the way of a reference to verdigris in wound bass strings and, more importantly, a remedy (besides replacement). Any advice on this?

No. It's impossible to spoil a piece like that. I learnt pieces way about my level when I was 7, and 10, and 13. I still play them today and they are possibly *cough* not at concert level *cough* but they are in my veins, and they take me to a place

Ok, so the acoustic piano won't depreciate much beyond a certain point after N amount of years - it is not immortal. 50 years is a very good lifespan for one.. And over that lifespan let's say you tune it once a year, and need have some work done eve
