BDB, I didn't condem your experiment. I simply explained why you didn't like the tone. I have done hundreds of actions with hammers light enough to enable removal of almost all the front leads. Manufacturers representatives have seen them. Including

What few pianos with aluminum harps that I serviced - old spinets and consoles - had a rather annoying resonance. Like playing the thing in a tin can. Yes, steer clear of these.

- to the OP; you can save money (~£100) by using the built-in sound-chip on your computer and getting the free (and very reliable) ASIO4all driver. I was doing this quite happily for several years. Your needs seem very basic so I would recommend i

Why do people think the ending of Ballade 2 is bone chilling? I always thought of it as rather peaceful.

In my opinion, the way to best utilize Pianoteq is to accept it as you would any piano that you purchased. All pianos do not sound the same. If you purchased a piano you would use it to play music with and would not be analyzing every tone against

I went to a store and played the F-130R today, which I was really excited about. I'd love to buy this IF I can get the settings to fit my preferred sound. There are a few things I like about it. I love the cabinet style, and I really love the keys.

Shostakovich - Prelude & Fugue in F# minor - maybe the darkest Picardy third in all of music. Chopin - Ballade No. 1 in G minor - electrifying every time. Chopin - Ballade No. 2 in F major - yep, a truly frightening moment as you say.. Dussek

Probably a cliche question, but I did use the search function and couldn't find anything, so here goes. What ending to a piece gives you chills whenever you hear it? Ones which never fail for me are Chopin's second Ballade, Beethoven's Appassionata

I would only value the opinion of someone who has mastered many extremely difficult works. That description would not really apply to me; I play things within my limits, and by virtuoso standards, I tend to play the more manageable works in the liter
