I'm not a tech, so you don't need to take my thoughts seriously, but as a pianist, I'd be outraged if my brand new piano was treated this way! I would insist on a new set of keys with the appropriately sized bushings. That was a ridiculously destruct

That the sum of two waves at frequencies 10 and 15 Hz could generate a perceived tone at 5Hz is an ultra simple example of what happens with the low bass notes on a piano. The C1 note has little if any strength at 32.7 Hz. However, there is considera
