This question comes up often on this board, and I always wonder why. If you are the one who is advanced enough to play "Liszt, Prokofiev, etc..." and you are wondering about the difficulty of the Rachmaninoff Third, give it a try and find

Well, if you can find someone to restring it, replace the hammers, and do the other work it needs at a reasonable price, it might very well be a decent piano at a price close to the Kawai. It looks to be a C scale Baldwin, which would be the equivale

At the tempo these are being played, and the fact that the designation at this point is "impetuoso", I would suggest that one of the most important things to observe about these left-hand chords is that they should sound like a sixteenth-no

FWIW -- If you want a weighted action that's fairly light, find a used Yamaha P105. It has the "GHS" action, noticeably lighter than the GH in the CP33 / P155 / etc. Another alternative (but heavier action, more like an acoustic piano) i

I don't know that reputable dealers ever deliver pianos "right out of the box" to their customers. A good dealer receives pianos from the manufacturer, preps them and tunes them and - in many (most?) cases - will prep and tune them again w

Hi again Andrew, Regarding finish, I would prefer something kind of interesting, but for me the piano is ultimately a tool that must both work properly in a mechanical/acoustic sense and be a useful means of creating art. If I have to pick between

Crucial to my progress were these things: 1. Learning to read music. This was really important, because it set me free to learn anything I wanted without limits or relying on silly method books. 2. Learning some popular music such as movie themes

I use an X-acto knife. But instead of the metal blade, I make one out of a guitar pick so that it will fit in the end of the X-acto handle. It works great! Especially in the high treble where there is very little room to pluck. The rule is: just ba

You can try using two long, thin bladed screwdrivers. Use one to loosen the screw and then use the other one to wedge in between the flange and its neighbor. This is one Johnkie is suggesting above. Sometimes you will hear the flange "break free

Good luck, I hope you find something you love. Beyond the touch curve, there is also Hammer Delay (on the MP7, not sure about ES7)- while it is a different function it does affect the way you play and therefore has the result of different dynamic res
