Usually when I try to do something valuable, I end up spending money on some things that are really good, and some things that are useless. If you find that you will be motivated and actually work through the boring parts, you'll probably get your m

Joe, How long is a piece of string? External speakers can be of any size, wattage, efficiency and frequency response. They can be mounted at any distance to the keyboard and at any desired separation. My setup has two passive JBL studio monitor C

I would like a stand-alone keyboard that doesn't require a laptop. I need no bells and whistles. Just a simple piano sound would be fine. This is for practice only when I am traveling. The M-Audio 49 I currently have has two drawbacks: all the s

I gotta agree with Ed(s), you can go through the motions of regulating an old vertigris-ridden action, but you won't get great results. I wager it won't perform that much differently than it does now, and you'll be kicking yourself for spending the

One would like to think that the speaker system on a high-quality cabinet style DP would give a better sound that some user styled organization of speakers. Having said that ... it may not be true. Some will suggest you can do better with quality

The wippens just click into the rocker arms. They work like the snap-on elbows for spinet. I forget whether there is a screw that you need to loosen to get them out and tighten to get them in, but that should be evident. It is not difficult, just tim

JimF and barbaram - I think the "losing touch with the score" phenomenon is common for us beginning/intermediates. Our hands know what to do, so our brains go on auto-pilot. I found out the hard way what the down side of this is. We somet

If all you need is better soft tones and more even tone overall, regulation and voicing should keep you going for several years. At some point, you may want more work, but that may be 10-15 years away.

This is far better than aftertouch; it's multi axis control. It allows for infinitely more control than just aftertouch... If I had a separate GOOD midi keyboard apart from my main piano, I would consider installing this. I could play vibrato a-la-On
