Jump to new posts Yamaha M217 age? by Cy Shuster, RPT @ Today at 03:58 PM

I serviced a Yamaha M217 studio recently, with a serial number prefix of "B". I couldn't find this prefix in Yamaha's reference or in Pierce. Weren't the "M" models were made in the US? It appears to be from the 80's (three pe

Success! To give credit where it's due, Jurgen had already contacted me behind the scenes and advised much as Alfredo had: not to remove the damper mechanism, but rather tilt or remove the action as far as possible in order to strip mute, tune the m

I don't agree with you that this is a proper representation of the 19th Century style. Or, more importantly, I don't think this is how Brahms would have wanted this piece played. Obviously we can't go back and ask him, but why is the tempo all over t

It's interesting to see his perspective that the new Masons are equal to the "golden era" Masons, whereas it seems to be the general opinion on this forum that they are quite different instruments tonally. Yet he does mention that the clas

I'd stay away from one-size-fits-all statements like the metronome is crucial, or that it's helpful for anyone learning a given piece. It depends on your skill level, and your particular strengths and weaknesses. In my own case, subtleties of phrasi

If you research Chickering, you will find an incredible range, with all sorts of plate designs, ranging from light to very heavy. I'll wager the cost of my next moving bill if I'm wrong. I paid five times the cost to move it last time that I paid fo

Yes, everything starts in the mind, and our intellect and will commands our technique. Our perception of the sound we want comes first, and even that is commanded by what we want to communicate. Of course, you need a good technical training, but eve

I found this quoted account by George Sand on how Chopin would go about composing. I find some deep fascination in this because it's so similar to how I compose. I also feel this depicts how Chopin could sometimes be a faithful servant/slave to his o

You know what in certain European countries, if a piano hasn't been reconditioned it's rarely completely cleaned out. That's true of most dealers in the UK too. I don't like it either but it's perfectly normal. I hadn't noticed that bridge pin - yo

I started learning Ravel's 'Pavane pour une infante defunte' last night. I absolutely love Ravel's music and this is my first attempt at learning something of his. Very happy to get familiar with the first 5 bars I posted the audio on Soundcloud.
