Huh? If the N1 action is similar to that of an acoustic, then wouldn't it need similar maintenance? It has cloth-bushed wooden keys, doesn't it? And grand-action wippens and reps? Save for the hammer heads, doesn't it have all the work and wear char

In 2007, I sold my 1993 Boston GP 178 privately. I had bought it in 1998 as a new piano, but it had obviously been in the showroom for some time and was sold to me at the discounted price of NZ$27,500. In 2007, I sold it to someone who worked in a p

As long as the main beat is steady, I don't think it matters whether you add the 'ands' or not. I'd do whatever keeps you at an even pulse.

Lots of good suggestions to take into account, Corvus. If you are uncomfortable doing a one-time recording of your own performance, then perhaps you can create a better habit by regularly recording your own practice sessions. This way, you can use t

I am working on this piece and would appreciate any tips on two things: 1. Keeping the right hand note going cleanly and out of the way of the left hand motif. I have checked a few YouTube videos and there seems to be several different styles in pla

You can apply a small amount of Protek or Goose Juice liquids to the bearing points to aid rendering. For the tenor section on Steinways and such with the wide counter bearing felt, the drag is mostly in the felt. I fashioned aliquots to install bet

I've had this conversation with Jim, and I agree that it is a felt thing. Less so at the capstan heel, but most definitely the most changeable at the interfaces where we adjust the fore-aft position of the jack, and the height of the jack in the wind

Two positive, factual pieces of information about this piano are the brand and the age. Kawai is a highly reputable piano manufacturer and a 10 year old piano could almost be described as a "newish" piano. We can only speculate about the co
