One thought to add to this discussion: By the time a piano is over 30 years old the condition of the action becomes a leading factor. I realize you weren't asking that, but for those out there who are unhappy with the touch on their piano, the servi

I'm honored to have my name in the thread title, but I'm at a loss as to what I'm supposed to "analyse". I can measure frequencies of a specific unison, or compare two unisons, but don't know what to do with 20 mins of unstructured tuning s

JimF & Whizbang - thanks for the support! It means a lot! Transposing that song is pretty easy because the right hand has only 2nd or 3rd intervals in regular progression, and no chords, so like I said, you just need to start your thumb on the

Many early grand lids used simple 3-ply construction. An edge-glued core (usually of poplar or some such wood) with a face veneer on each side having the grain running in the same direction as the core. Considering their construction these lids held

Cool! When I saw the thumbnail, I thought--this first chord must be in D major. And then I looked at the full image and I was... er, no. So with the flat in the key signature, this would normally be F major, but without the sharped F in that measu

I wasn't thinking of any in particular but just in general might you be happier in the future with one slightly larger, say the 5'8" to 5'10" if you can accommodate one? I have never played one but if I were buying one of the smaller size

Those interested might like to look up the case of "Carlyll v Carbolic Smokeball co.". (It is real, I didn't make that one up). An offer made lapses after a reasonable time in UK law. I imagine the same to be the case in most of the colon

Great videos, but not sure if coil end rotation affects jack performance. The upright springs here have the potential to be oppositely coiled: http://www.vandaking.com/s-527a-upright-jack-springs.html But I doubt they go that far. My own Ri

Well Ed, I can't stand the way the felt take some time to fully flatten out after you move the flange laterally during hammer spacing. Plus felt moves more with humidity than wood so I believe it worsens the ability of the flanges to get loose during

Yeah everything you said sounds like you should try learning more straightforward and simpler pieces. The Chopin etude especially, while it sounds easy, it's actually a little difficult to play.

I busted out my old recording which I thought had a really good tempo, and it's a bit over 140 (fair amount of rubato so it's hard to say exactly). 160 is too fast IMO, but 120 is too slow. I think 130 would be okay.
