That's great, Lee Ann, so glad you have many different brands to try! I almost purchased a Kawai RX-1 but the dealer wouldn't budge on the price, which was just a bit too high. The RX series are lovely pianos. I like the KGs, as well. Hope you find

Is there a matching triple pedal for the FP-30? Roland suggests the single pedal DP-10 as accessory. Roland does make the RPU-3 triple pedal. But it has R/C/L cables, 3 in total. And the FP-30 does not have input for this. You have to go up to

Keep a few items as personal treasures. As for the rest, you'll find that piano teachers are often asked to take stuff like this, yet typically have little use for it. That's in N. America,at least. You could speak to your local chapter of a piano t

My suggestion is to give it to a piano teacher. Over time, she can gradually sell some of them for $4 each. I think you will have a very hard time getting buyers.

If you like this specific piano, I would suggest negotiating much harder on the price. In addition to the good information here, most technicians are able to purchase and use Steinway action parts easily, if they want to use them. (it's a hotly deb

Seriously, Nathan, everyone on this thread is right. Davdoc has made a very good point about spending the money on a good teacher and having your Kimball serviced. You need a teacher who knows about tone production, and knows how to teach you to prod

You could be a better piano for cheaper from any number of rebuilders. I wouldn't worry about whether a Steinway is all original or not, I'd rather have a well set-up Steinway from a quality rebuilder. They approach their work as a labor of love.

I played a Roland HP-605 and then a Kawai CA97 both through headphones, 2 days ago. I prefer the Grand Feel II on the Kawai CA97 and also prefer the piano sound on the Kawai, because the Roland HP-605 had an irritating effect when I was playing
