The Kawai VPC-1 does not need further regulation. I completely understand the ''upgrades'made by Ravenworks from a financial goalpost, but the upgrade is not worth the price difference in my opinion. Every grand piano needs a regulation after transp

If you really want to create your own sounds, look for a Kawai K-5000 additive synth, or the K-5000R synth module. With these, you are REALLY creating your own sounds. You can usually find them used on Ebay at reasonable cost. There are a couple o

I played one at the Chopin Symposium in London on the occasion of Freddy's 200th birthday (composers tend to have long lives). What struck me was the shallowness of the action, which made it possible to play filigree fioritura very easily. Also octa

So, Here I am... I started the piano the year I turned 40. I play the guitar as teenager but I really did not practice sufficiently. I was good at music theory as I am very much inclined toward math and science but I was a disaster for musicality.

I hope it was not last tuned in 1943! But if that's the case, it'll be very badly out of tune. First thing I would do is have it tuned and specify that you want to have it tuned to pitch. Make sure you tell the tuner so they can allot some extra t

My store told me list price is CAD$380 but he can sell it for CAD$330. Sweetwater & B&H currently sell it for USD$249 but with CAD$ currency lower than USD$, plus the fact Kawai store sell it for USD$289, CAD$330 seems make sense.

I have an 1840's upright Wornum Piccolo. Pleyel copied it for his Pianino. You can do things you can't on a heavy modern action. Also, as it's a bichord, the unachorda is truly one string and as such ethereal!

Nsetiap, in your original post you quoted $330 CAD for the Kawai branded ES8/ES7 bag. This appears to be full retail/msrp. Did your Canadian dealer not offer any discount? When I bought ES7 in Fall 2014, this same bag retailed $300 USD, my US dealer
