I don't think touchweight is always a function of regulation Markarian? It's not "usual" regulation anyway. It is good for a Steinway to be heavier because it is designed that way. Quote from an older thread: Quote:Steinway actions are his

Welcome to Piano World, Fang. Touch weight is a function of regulation, and is something that a good technician should be able to adjust to your kids' needs. I would first focus on the condition of the instrument you're considering (as you have been
