I don't think it's possible for us to tell whether your trilling difficulty on uprights is only the fault of the upright or partially a technical problem on your part. It's possible that someone with better trilling technique could execute the trills

Hi Mac, I honestly think you are splitting hairs... but that is not unusual for us perfectionists. A good digital hygrometer is not expensive, if it would make you feel better. But a Bacharach sling-psychrometer is among the most accurate instrum

I use my MP6 as a multi-timbral sound generator. It sounds great! I really enjoy this keyboard. All reverb type are realistic; the depth can be adjusted on all the 16 MIDI channels. But apparently the EFX are not available when "Multi" is

If you're good with woodworking, you can install a dutchman to straighten the key. I've done it several times using old key stock as the insert. Other than that, steaming and bending may help or simply sand the side of the key for clearance. The pia

I would generally expect the Yamaha to be the better piano, but play them both. Condition is extremely important of course. Samick varies quite a lot -- I don't know if it's just by year or...? Some are nice, and some not so much.
