Hi, I'm new here but I could use some opinions. I have the opportunity to get a Technics sx px30 for $215. She said it has a "buzz" and the tone is a bit tinny. I'm thinking of telling her that if she doesn't get a better offer, I wil

Consider the impact on big-budget IP -- Movies cost $50 - 300 million to make. TV episodes in the single digit millions each. Take away the back end, and those industries would disappear in a flash. Tens of thousands of people would be out of goo

I'd love to use my iPad for music but it's just too small. I'd really have to squint. I think that's a pretty common problem.

The chart I have for it is in Am, which makes the vocal range E4 - G5, the middle of Mezzo. I use the free MuseScore notation program, which will transpose anything to any key you want. See who may want to sing it with you, and pick a key based on

Sometimes it depends on the truck the mover is using too. The third man is usually a "spotter" and it does make reassembling the piano a bit faster. My Naples FL mover does pianos as part of their regular routine, and they usually have 3
