@Everybody: Thank you for your responses. I didn't know that the GSi was mainly an organ-based sound module. Organ's are important to me, but so are standard piano's, so if the GSi isn't geared for grand or upright piano's, then it probably won't w

Although often mentioned, I think it's a mistake to worry about the fact that digital pianos have frequent upgrades. IMO the only important thing is how much you like a digital piano's sound and touch at the time you're considering purchasing it. If

Why does need to this exact? All you need is a fit for the four screw holes at the bottom of the piano. Other than that it just needs to look good with a nice finish.

Jump to new posts Re: Why is aluminum keybed an innovative idea? by brighamspianos @ 33 minutes 58 seconds ago

It's the opposite-it's actually very ideal for areas with strong temperature changes. I've done some research on this and the keybed never shrinks or expands-it will never warp. It makes for more accurate and better playing over the years.

$2000 per year? Unless you run a concert hall, that's really excessive. I've spent under half of that total in the 15 yrs I've owned my grand. Until now, I've paid for professional tunings and a couple of professional voicings, but I do some work my

Reaper is a nice and cheap DAW. You can download it freely and test it for 60 days. The main drawback is the "Spartan" presentation of the effects. Their GUI is not nicely designed. It comes with no virtual instruments.
