It does have a lock-out function, but I think my better long-term solution will be to learn to keep my hands closer to the keys so I don't touch the buttons. I guess I was getting too carried away with what I was doing. Now that I know what was goi

I am more concerned about the acoustics inside the room than sound transmission to adjacent rooms. I suppose the answer is to get the piano in there and listen to how it sounds. Fortunately there isn't a square corner in the place. I hope the spac

You can also use a heat gun to slightly soften the glue where the shank meets the hammer butt, and then gently push the hammer to either side, holding it there until the glue cools off again. Start with the lowest heat setting in your gun: You don't
