FWIW real classical (church)organs have enormously long keys . . . and a lovely light touch. Well, the digitals I played did . . .and the real pipe organs sometimes have an electronic action which is similar. The non electronic action is heavier an

Digitaleagle, welcome to Piano World! Your longish post is very helpful as it gives a clearer description of this piano. Of course, the condition and value of the piano can be determined only by a thorough appraisal of the piano by a professional

Hmmm. It should be enough that weight produces the tone, even in a child. I spend a lot of time teaching young children to play the piano so I've experience of this. If the piano is too heavy it will just cause tension related problems in the piani

I am not a fan of the heavy-touch-weight-to-develop-students'-fingers school of thought. In the long run, anything above "medium" is too much for advanced literature. Concert grands, on which students play recitals and compete, SHOULD feel

While we're at it, is there any easter egg in the MP7 we should know about ? (there was 1 sine sound in may last DP, though it might have been for testing purposes)

I use Pianoteq, and I set my dynamic range to around 50 db, but I wonder: do headphones slightly compress the sound? Should the dynamic range be different, depending on whether you're using headphones or speakers?

This piano has been regulated (4 or 5 hours spent ) last month and evenly played. Since I did ask for the touch weight, the technician brought the tool to give me the measurement. The few minutes I spent on it, I do need to use actual strength to g

Ian, the only departure, apart from the Stringer, from the conventional pin/pinblock that were made in significant numbers were with the Beale tuning system. Beale pianos had a cast iron pinblock with tapered pins pushed in from the back and retained

Er... I really don't think having children practising on a piano with such a heavy touch is a good idea, sorry. Someone here quoted that a heavier touch will give you more expression and that is simply not true. You should have the piano regulated

Thanks - no, actually nothing is changed from the score I have. I think it might be the acoustics and the bad audio quality of the clip. I do have an audio version of it, recorded from the audience and the impression is slightly different. You can he

If I bought the Steinway, that will be the major piano they practice on. I have a yamaha digital (weighted keys), $1800 when bought 7 years ago, when started. Currently, they rotate their time on digital and the U3. U3 will be sold after I upgrade.

The sound is not very clear, so I cannot comment on your playing. But it seems from the audience's reaction that it was a remarkable performance. Congratulations!

Very well done! It seemed in the final moments that you might have changed a few details from the original (or maybe the hall acoustics brought out different elements). Have you modified it a little from Cziffra's version?
