My thread on this was removed (not just locked) in a flash. I posted it as a way to see if other dealers had been stiffed by corporations on large orders. I thought that was an interesting issue to pose to dealers. No dice. The collateral theme

cphollis, there probably are a few outstanding grands < 5'5 in. (165 cm), usually with a big price premium however. grands project their sound into the room, but big uprights give the player the sound and vibration feedback. students who have or

Yep, itching to hear what they've made here. Kontakt engine is fine, we know it works well with lots of other instruments, so it comes down to the source instrument, recording sessions, and programming. Bring on the demos!

Instruments in this price range, there's not much reason to hem and haw. If you can get your hands on them to try, you'll know right away which you prefer from how it sounds and feels to play. Try, Casio PX-160, PX-360 Yamaha P-45/P-115 Kawai ES

Practising is not just spending x amount of time on the piano for x number of days in a week. Practising is a habit that you develop over time. Practise becomes your daily life that you don't have to be forced or told to do it. It's like brushing

I have played several Brodmann PE 187s at different stores. The Brodmann pianos at R. Kassman in Berkely were very well-prepped and a delight to play. Kassman really shows those pianos at their finest. Like everyone else reading this thread, I have
