Thank you, Marty, for nice suggestion. I paid $150, he almost did all the tuning for about 1 hour 10 mins. I completely respect your advice about having second rot to check it, but I am really not sure if I should spend another $150 . The seller

May I suggest that you have another inspection by a different tech. If that piano has been well kept, a pin block shouldn't be failing after 10 years. If it had regular tunings up until a year ago, it should not have been so out of tune that an ins

BDB, you probably can tell that I am hesitating to let it go....I might get it for around 8k, so if I spend another (let's say) 2k for most of these issues excluding DC, plus moving and others, I am looking at $11000 for a 2004 Kawai RX-2, it is impo

BDB, this tech spent about an hour to tune the most of the piano until the sell had guest coming over for dinner, and I suggested him to just stop there. He said it was overall a good piano(7-8 out of 10), and told me about full regulation issue, cl

I would get another opinion on this piano. It sounds like this tech is padding the bill, but if he is not, a 10-year-old piano that has loose pins is not one that I would recommend. I would not diagnose "only one or two loose tuning pins which n

The only two differences I notice as a pianist on the actions I rebuild with the W,N&G shank/flange compared to ones with wood shanks is: it is much more even and controllable when playing softly, and repeated single notes sound much more similar
