Jump to new posts Digital vs acoustic, $400 budget by AnastasiaT @ 05/24/15 12:04 AM

Hi we are looking for a piano for my 9 yr old daughter. Husband thinks digital with weighted keys/pedals is as good as acoustic. We are looking at a Samick SC-900 which looks like an acoustic piano (sort of like an "apartment-size" piano)

My 7-year-old was given her first metronome assignment by her teacher. Which, because her teacher is smart, is just to play the RH from a piece she learned two years ago, with a metronome speed that's a little slow but only a little slow for the piec

If the L is really well preserved as regards soundboard, bridges, strings and pin block-I would prefer it over an R. They are robust sounding pianos and extremely durable.

Jump to new posts Re: Recommendations for bridle straps? by Ed McMorrow, RPT @ 05/23/15 11:41 PM

Not a silly question. Many times the cork straps are too long resulting in the need to bend the bridle wires way back. You then must hope they will not interfere with any of the case parts. This is why most technicians stock several types of straps t

Wise and broadening thoughts, John. Thanks! In lean teaching years, joining the hive can look alluring. In robust teaching years, the independent studio wins on many counts.

Jytte, you're right in the abstract, but it's still uncommon to see someone twice a week for a piano lesson. Especially an adult.

So I looked at both the Baldwin L and the Baldwin R - Both are in very good condition with no major identifiable flaws. The Baldwin L is 1963 and the Baldwin R is 1986 as mentioned above. If price can be essentially the same (maybe a little cheaper

To add to Genes excellent advice. When you get the bridge planed down to within a millimeter or two of the panel, you can place a hot electric iron on the bridge and it will soften the glue and allow you to peel it up little by little.

Jump to new posts Re: String levelling issue? by Ed McMorrow, RPT @ 05/23/15 11:11 PM

Mating the hammers and strings is when a silent room is needed. If there is much noise you can't hear the subtle differences. One can tune quite well in some noise but you can't mate unisons to hammers if any noise is present.

It's true that Pollini played the Etude with more clarity and evenness than Argerich did, but he also played it a lot slower than she did. If Argerich slowed down to Pollini's tempo, perhaps she would have played as cleanly as he did. Pollini is on

No, you level the keys without the balance rail studs touching. Only if the piano has a "flexible" style keyframe must you set the studs prior to key leveling.

BDB is probably correct. You can contact Dean Petrich, RPT who is in the Seattle area and has a piano wrecking yard. He probably has one that would work. You can look up his contact info on the PTG website.
