Letters are hard to retrieve backwards. Numbers are too, but we've memorized the patterns so long ago it doesn't seem hard. That's the basis for the tricks in the memory courses, prememorizing some hooks you can hang other ideas on.

Thank you so much for the translation and summary. The updated action and successors in the cn series looks like a great step forward in the Kawai medium line up of DPs. Makes you wonder if there are any other interesting updates in the pipe. Wou

Hi All, I just bought a new Kawai K-800AS piano a week ago. Everything is fine except that I noticed the key release noise is quite obvious... It is even much louder than my Kawai ES100 digital piano. Wondering if this is normal? Or should I tell t

In any case, you should START your measurements by measuring the down-weight of an acoustic piano that you enjoy playing. But down-weight is only one measure -- it does not cover all of the behaviors of the key, as pointed out in the post on inertia

I found the same with my Clavinova. Somewhere over 80 g. When I choose another piano someday I'll want something lighter than this.

The process follows a very natural construction oder of things, with corrections made to the parts in question at the time of installation; each further step in the process corrects only those errors that they produce. *Fit the feet of the bracket

I think we would be better equipped to comment on practice requirements and expectations if the OP would share what level the student is in, and what pieces he is currently studying.

jim ialeggio, those are all valid issues regarding the natural rotation of the rails. If that is the case, IMHO, it must be started anew: that much variation is ultimately felt at the key and is measurable in the action geometry. Building-up an actio

You could try WNG actions in the Steingraeber Phoenix pianos at Hurstwood Farm in England, or presumably also at the Steingraber factory in Bayreuth. However, the effect of the WNG action on the tone would be hard to differentiate from the effect of
