As others have indicated, if the piano has had time to acclimatize to its new environment (three to four weeks), then it is probably a good time to have its first tuning. Subsequently, to confirm what others have already written, you may find it nee

You could jump to an 88-key DGX-650, which is the newest model in the YPG/DGX line for about $800, or you might be able to swing a deal if you look around. Are you specifically looking for a 76-key board for portability? I'm not sure the DGX-650 is t

If I can base the tuning on the video I'd say if the piano has been in the house for a few weeks already go ahead and get the tuner in. After that, tune the piano when it needs it. Don't surprised if it needs it a little more often in the first ye

Humidify the room first. It is the moisture in the air that conducts the heat so you will feel better too. Consult with an HVAC person to know what the inside RH level should be for the outside RH and temp, there is vapor pressure to worry about. Ro

Hi, I am new to the world of pianos. My children have been taking lessons for about 1.5 years and we've been using a keyboard. Its time to buy piano and the task seems daunting. I found a used piano near our home that is a Yamaha P22 45 inch 198

30% is indeed on the low side. With a DC, you can keep the RH higher throughout winter (near the soundboard). The only "damage" created during installation is a few holes in the wooden beams, so no big deal.

Congratulations! Regarding the out of tune keys, it depends on how out of tune they are (i.e. can he tolerate it). The move may have knocked a few keys out of tune. With a new piano, you should probably get at least one free tuning. Most folks have
