Bert, many years ago, I bought a few of his tutorial DVDs. I thought he was good about starting with basics, defining terms, giving lots of examples, etc. He used to be pretty good about answering question, too. So I'd be surprised if you are not com

there's a tendency with many asian pianos that are not the premium line of the respective brand, the hammers aren't the highest quality and get harder before too long, increasing their bright/brittle/harsh timbre. the kawai probably started out new

While fun to discuss and throw opinions about, at that level and with the rarity of these instruments, you'll have to make a field trip or 2.

Thanks for all of the comments. Regarding the Kawai, I have contacted a technician and am working to get him over to look at it. As for the "rough edges" on the Geyer, I would classify those more of a fit and finish on the cabinet. Act

No. I have had factory experience for many years, not with pianos, and it is normal to have at the back end of quality control repairs done before final shipment. The repairs may be done in the factory, or they can be contracted externally. Either wa

In my experience staccato helps alot in fast passage work. Especially when both hands play together. It also helps to play for example two sixteenth legato and two staccato. Or every first second third or fourth staccato. Also let the weakest hand

Yes. Are you using a metronome? Best thing for evenness is to play each 16th notes at 208 bpm playing staccato and not.

Great review CyberGene. I wish to have either an N1 or NU1. The CA97 isn't bad, but I agree with your thoughts. I'm going to try and find them in the same showroom to compare the upright and grand action.

Thanks for the review and your own thoughts. I have an NU1, and what I found in the first year or so was that the action was just so hopelessly uncontrollable, at least compared to most high end DP's. I invited my teacher to my house and was dumbfou

I'm practicing a rather fast Bach piece at the moment (BWV 927) and having trouble with precision. Sometimes I hear unevenness and sometimes notes in both hands are not simultaneous. Of course, I decided to slow down and practice measure-by-measure,

Good piano dealers don't unequivocally say that their inventory choices are the best in each price range. They say "In our opinion" even if some would assume it's their opinion without that phrase or "We feel that make X is one of the
