Open it up and take a look, leaky or blown capacitors are easy to see, then fix.

I'm not even a piano tech and it sounded so wrong to use WD40 on a string.. BTW, other than maintaining the environment to ideal humidity and temperature, what else can you do to prevent rust from even getting hold of your piano strings?

Greetings, I have owned an ES7 since December of 2012. I purchased it from the same dealer in NH as another user on this board, who, frustratingly enough for me, paid significantly less around the same time, even though I bought the floor model (it

You can pick up a korg kross 61 key keyboard for around $700 (less if you can find it used, or good condition B-stock). It weighs like 10 lb. and can be powered by batteries. Yeah, it's not going to fit in a backpack, but it's something that woul

Hi there, A Guy! Well, you certainly deserved the overlay of vocal appreciation with the applause after that performance! The thing I liked best about your performance was the clarity of the accompanying material and harmonic progressions at critical

This has a lot of potential. Unless there is a deadline for you to hand something in in the near time, perhaps the decision to continue or not continue need not be a final one. If you feel stuck now, it is quite OK to go work on something else for t

THAT doesn't sound too encouraging I love the piano for what it is, without all of these added modern equipment. I've had some opportunities to play some pianos with players on them and the pedals DEFINITELY didn't feel right.

Yes. A company by the name of Pure Sound makes stainless alloy piano wire. It is weaker than modern piano wire. I do use it in portions of the plain wire scale that are way too short to sound good with modern wire. Often just two to four notes strun

I also love how joyful you made it! The piece has some lovely humor in it and you communicated it all. You seemed to relish all the little timing decision in there, and the grinning was infectious! Lovely piece, lovely playing! [TwoSnowflakes
