Even if there was an issue, Kawai has really easy to understand and follow service manuals. They make quality stuff that can actually be serviced, and their action is more acoustic piano-like in my opinion. Their attention to detail is impeccable.

Most lubricants are petroleum based, and petroleum is bad for a lot of materials. A synthetic lubricant would be better. If you can take the hinge apart, something like Super Lube (has teflon) would be great. It's clear and odorless and synthetic. If

These recitals are always a bit of a drain on our time. They're fabulous to listen to but if the comments don't come within a certain time-frame they seem to lack much of the impact that's generated while the recital is still fresh. I'll add what I c
