If Yamaha shipped it to Yamaha US to distribute, it can't be "grey market". For any product to be grey market it has to come through non-standard channels. I suspect the piano is B stock, a piano returned to yamaha with a problem, per

If you want something closest to the feel of a grand piano, forget about looking in the sub-$1k price range. Certainly if that is all you can afford, then you can find something decent there, but it will be miles away from the feel you can get for so

I'd never much thought of this passage this way before, because it's such a familiar piece and passage that it doesn't seem "weird" -- it's more like it-is-what-it-is, which is how it often is when something is familiar. But stepping back f

But, Louis, I don't see how this invalidates the specifically sought point of the OP or its potential value. At the end of the day, whatever the condition of one's playing apparatus may be - whether caused by ailment or injury or, indeed, untroubled

I don't know of this applies in this case, but I have heard that Yamaha ships and crates a lot of factory refurbs to the US that are technically "grey market" pianos, in that they are new or refurbished directly from Yamaha but sold ultimat

No; this is my grandma's piano. I've decided that too many old uprights just sound....yuck. Not because they are bad pianos, but because they're so old. You'd be much better off to go with an in tune, in good condition spinet than an old, out of sh

When I started lessons, my teacher did not offer a free lesson. We knew there was a music store there, and I wanted lessons, so we simply went and signed up. A free lesson would have been neat, but if we really weren't interested, it wouldn't have ch

As a parent, I did not do the intro lesson without being serious about signing up, but I can see how it would feel to be taken advantage of on a regular basis if you find that there is a large number you never hear back from. I would totally be okay

As I just said on another thread, the wholesale price of a new piano is only one component of what it actually costs the dealer to buy it and keep it on his or her sales floor. There are debt service, salaries to employees, building maintenance, uti

If you can stretch to $1899 then the Roland DP90 is a good option. It has a full size action so should feel better than the F130R. I prefer this action to the CN34's. In terms of CN24 vs CN34 - the brochure gives a side by side comparison of specs.

I have a beautiful shiny black grand piano. Unfortunately it shows dust and finger prints very easily. How can I clean it in such a way that it won't hurt it, and yet actually gets the dust? Also how should I clean the keys?

Do a factory reset. That really should be the first step in figuring things out. This will wipe out any odd user settings.
