This sounds wierd. I tought I understood 7th chords. And being a classical pianist I haven't been reading chords in the letter format. But I happened to be reading about Blues and I got suprised that I was wrong. I think it is something that my brain

I might suggest a roll or two of plastic food wrap to add an extra layer of cheap humidity protection. If it is stored in damp storage space, mold, mildew can form on cardboard and it ruins the box and packing materials.

The company is still in business, and they still claim their piano as Matchless. That sounds like a challenge that is still offered to me!

Knabe's are great to rebuild. Very high quality. I don't agree with the "dainty tone" description for Knabe's. Just last year played on a Knabe square that I would keep, because the tone was amazing. I do think the pictured instrument is ov

Ok. So in general, Reblitz mentions #7 to be concise. I.e. the hangers are almost never ever bent or need straightening. Although once, I had to fabricate a broken one. So, this means, probably something else is awry. Treble dampers lifting before

If you can find in a library or order a copy of Lift Every Voice and Sing, that's a great hymnal with a mix of traditional and gospel hymns. Get it spiral bound so it will stay open on the piano. Here is the table of contents http://www.hymnary.org/h
