I have had a Hamilton since 1999. My daughters learned how to play on it and I just moved to Houston with it. I had a tuner do some minor re-voicing and it really helped. I may after it sits for 3 months have him do a total re-voice and ensure the

I paid about $740 for a set of grand bass strings a few weeks ago. That is Australian dollars and included 10% GST.

Jump to new posts Is this price to much for a Kawai KG-2 by Lee Ann @ 07/25/16 05:44 PM

I've been looking at pianos for a month or so now, and have a few that I am considering. A few I really like, of course, those ones are probably out of my price range. I was hoping to spend no more than $6,000, and would be happier at $4,000. I ha

Thanks for the detailed answer, slobajudge. Great opinion on wide range of popular piano libraries. That says a lot. I do think Pianoteq's responsiveness is one of the best in software piano market, but it still sounds like Pianoteq to my ears while

The above assumes that you don't mind playing non-QRS music obtained from online sources (try Googling "piano midi files"). I'm not aware of a huge market for used QRS CDs, but they do turn up occasionally on eBay and Craigslist. There ar

I hate when they notate swing rhythms like that. Just write eighth notes and tell me to swing it... The dotted eighth-sixteenth is so much harder to read IMO... Try Martha Meir's "Jazz, Rags, an Blues" series- lots of syncopation and swing.
