Looks a bit like a 1930s vintage. Genuine ivory keys and those square legs. I wonder if the music stand is a later addition- it is huge, not that that is a problem.

TonyB, Yes, the leftmost pedal is called the soft pedal. It's also called the Una Corda (or one string). When you play a note on an acoustic piano, the hammer is generally striking multiple strings (for the same note) simultaneously, which giv

That's an interesting piece of work that you have created. My only thought is that, proportionally, the feet look much too small, dainty, and delicate for the rest of the piece. I hope it serves the purpose well. Regards,

TonyB, Just FYI, there's actually one mistake that Duane makes in his discussion of pedal usage (not sure if it was in lesson 6 or later on). He describes the middle pedal as the sostenuto pedal and describes its function as sustaining the bas

Firmer felt front rail punchings are obtainable. I have not used them but I can see advantages in enabling a more precise aftertouch. I don't know what the opinion is of pianists however if the keys bottom out more suddenly.
