Hi Chris, That is correct. The piano was in unplayable condition when it was abandoned. I convinced the new owner that it was salvagable. Giving me a very low budget I was able to make it a playable piano and save it from the junk yard. The bar that

It's worth it to step up to the px350 for hook up flexibility and a little bit better speakers. The px5s is $1000.

Sam, Would you refresh my memory of how large a space you have for your piano?

Jings and they want 25k for that? It's a lovely finish and I've every confidence it will sound great but at 25k Nah I'll just look for something newer, not that that piano is bad cause it's older just that I'd like something abit younger that's all.

You are being very considerate. Please don't issue a general disclaimer -- that would be awkward for these few parents. You can mention it privately to them, but I'm sure they expect many of the other kids to be playing Christmas songs, and don't obj

Precise touch is overrated. The touch should be comfortable before worrying about precision.
Piano Tuner-Technicians Forum
That's it exactly .... packing the key frame rather than inserting loads of punchings makes for a much more precise touch. Be sure to use shims that are a few inches long and the total depth of the front rail, that way the rail isn't likely to distor

OP did post photos. Thank you for the link Piano Brazil. He probably stopped posting otherwise because he only wanted to share the joy of a new piano, not stir up heated debates. Most newbies have a love of the instrument and love of making music,

Kees, I don't know what units you are using. The propagation velocity should be a materials property not a length property. My "guess" for the longitudinal velocity is based on sound propagation in air at about 1100 ft/sec, and water at a

I find Lang Lang plays with an incredible quality of sound but amazingly difficult to watch. He is such an incredible musician but his mannerisms get in the way because often they are not even appropriate like grinning through a sad passage, but his

My 1927 Chickering seems to have spent it's entire life in the deep south (Texas and coastal Florida). There hasn't been any sticking of the keys or ivories falling off. The biggest downside without air conditioning is the rust on the steel string

A piano's value is as a musical instrument. So it's condition as a musical instrument will largely determine it's value. As you may already be aware, C. Bechstein is a very highly regarded piano builder but with an instrument that old it might be w

At your price level its hard to beat a casio px150. You'll want to include a stand and bench as well. I think your other option would be the yamaha p35 but the px150's action is definitely better. here's a professional pianist who uses a px150 as

Hi Cindy, Basically what Bruce said. That model of piano is well-known in the UK, because it's an English piano. They were made by more than one firm but the pianos were identical. Some were made by Challen, and some were made by Rogers, but then,
