One time before starting to tune a home piano, some of the keys weren't working and when I opened the piano up and looked inside I saw a little velvet bag that had a drawstring on it. I removed the bag (which immediately remedied the problem btw) an

I'm assuming you'd want a grand piano. I've never been a fan of Steinway uprights, but even their cheapest one still starts at over $22k. Steinway's smallest grand (the 5'1" S model) starts around $51k. Most financing options will give you a

The N1 is a good piano. I practice FAR more on my digital pianos than my AP. My AG is the only piano I've played for a week. It's a very useful practice tool. Having said that, Yamaha's marketing claims are sometimes over the top.

in the 1970s, the grotrian grands used renner hammers. the modern grotrians have abel hammers. but this is rather meaningless because in both cases the hammers were pressed to grotrian specs.

What brand piano is it? Steinways and Masons have quarter-sawn, laminated maple pin blocks and they are very durable if housed well. Older Chickerings and others had flat-sawn, laminate maple pin blocks-they don't hold up as well. Same goes for the

Scores won't sell for prices like that. It just won't happen and it's a waste of time to try to make it happen. If what we are witnessing here is the start of a paradigm shift of the musical arts, you have my nod, but this just isn't something that

Dave, can you please elaborate on your sound system setup for the N1, perhaps including specific speaker models? This would be really helpful for those of us wanting to get the most pleasing sound out of this cost-effective but very nice instrument.

I'm surprised the RX5 is the same price as the Ritmuller. The RX5 is a substantially bigger piano. Maybe they are selling it cheaply to get rid of it so they can display only the new GX Kawais. I would certainly take the RX5 - especially at that pric

You are way too young and way too meagerly paid to buy a Steinway grand at this point in your life. If you must have a grand piano right now, there are plenty of makes of pianos that you might like and would cost less than a Steinway. Consider buyi
