I have tuned those indoors and outdoors, with and without amplification. They make life interesting. The last one was a rare CP60, and the road manager said it had never sounded better.

The "combination of movements" must go hand in hand with a sound appropriate for the piece on which it is applied, no matter the tempo. Let's say he take op.10, no.1 up to a fast tempo. So what? What then? That says nothing about how it

Kawai have made beautiful instruments in both the MP7 and MP11, with unrivaled action on the MP11. One would have to pay huge bucks to get this kind of action from any other manufacturer. But somebody somewhere up there forgot that music is the produ

I've tuned one of these electrical pianos in my whole career as a piano tuner. Bitter experience. Tuning the bass by ear was difficult, I couldn't find a suitable tuning. Using my ETD? Impossible, it can not identify the pitch, it gets lost. I trie

You can download presets from the Casio forums, need to register as a user first, though. Some of them are good, in my opinion. You might want to get the Data Editor, downloadable at the Casio website, for a better overview of the controls and parame

Thank you. I'm tempted to buy an RD800 – that would probably meet my needs without needing a separate sound module, at least for now!

I think the room and piano look great! Enjoy - Enjoy - Enjoy !!! It will be interesting to find out if the shelving evolves from holding books to musical scores.

Save your mirth. A wall full of random sized books is a better diffusor than a flat wall. I know Ethan Weiner says they don't work but he gets his supper from selling traps and diffusors. The first person to suggest it to me 20 years ago was an a

Hello Max, Yes I have to admit that 18:00 in theory should be the best position when tuning grands, but in practice it tends to be impractical ( unless perhaps one is using one of the C type levers ). The main issue I associate with lever position

Well, I didn't expect to buy a Privia but I found a used one (PX-5S) at less than the half price (and about $250 less than a new PX 150). So, I took the risk and bought it without even seeing it! To tell you the truth, I would be very disappointed i

Greetings, It is natural for an upright piano to come to the end of its service life. As techs we see it all the time. However, the musical public thinks these instruments are eternal. This may be the case for a violin or trumpet, but not for a

I've just put on his CDs of Prokofiev's Romeo & Juliet, and Stravinsky's Le sacre du printemps, with the Cleveland Orchestra. I haven't listened to them for a while, and am quite amazed at his control of every nuance even at high speed, and the o

Thanks to the two decades I spent in the gym weightlifting, I'm able to lift my piano single-handedly, with one hand (and the other tied behind my back). OK, it only weighs 84 pounds........ (it's a digital).

Yamaha is even brighter (thought their latest pianos seem a little less bright If I am not mistaken?).

I have always loved his recording of Shostakovich's 5th symphony with Cleveland Orchestra. It was the first time I heard the work. I later heard Bernstein's and Rostropovich's versions which I never liked as much. His contributions will be missed.

Not sure how these factory tolerances make any sense when in my experience, all these CP70s have so much falseness in just abiut every individual bass string. - I would imagine even the very best ETD couldn't get a lock onto any single bass string t

Schimmel has a better reputation than weinbach, but it sounds like you don't like the piano. I would choose Yamaha over both schimmel and weinbach, but that's me. What are you looking for in a piano?

As far as string breakage is concerned, it won't make any difference whether you bring it up all the way or bring it up slowly in however many steps you like. Since one string already broke before reaching its intended pitch, it's highly likely man
