Proper tone regulation and tuning will put plenty of "sparkles, etc" in a Baldwin grand like you are looking at. Lack of competent, regular service is the norm with pianos, so that is what you are experiencing. Find a great piano technician

I believe that Abel customises hammers for the top tier pianos including Schimmel Braunschweig, Seiler Kitzingen, and my Bl├╝thner Leipzig. I have not read elsewhere about the need to soften Abel hammers. They are not factory doped but can be on re

Pre-owned(2015) is for $6219.00 with 5 years dealer warranty. much cheaper than that in Belgium. Here 15 years old Boston 118 would cost around 8000 euros.

If the piano spent a lot of time in the university environment it was probably played to death. Usually, this means an action rebuild is in it's future. The L's from this period are built like tanks, so if your tech gives you the OK, it may be a fi

I can think of no reason it should cost more to tune a Wegman. In my opinon, they had the most practical of the machine blocks. Rust might make things difficult, but then it always does.

Even when production was unpredictable, a less than stellar instrument would come to life with extensive prep. Unfortunately, convincing management to spend money on that type of thing in those days was tough. Baldwin had 17 stores and a warehouse

Just keep everything away from the finish regardless of whether it is the poly black or the matte. Scratches aren't trivial for either finish. The K500 has a much nicer keytop surface than the K300; the same kind they put on the grands.

Yes, these can and do get used all the time for setting the temperament... Eb4-Eb5 would be my best recommendation to minimize the effect of stretch, with A4 sitting in the middle. And yes, even following blindly an old Korg needle tuner (+/-2 cent

@Morodiene: I completely understand that sampling vs synthesis is probably a hotly debated topic and don't wish to start a flame war. To be honest with you, if one is better than the other, I doubt it'd be more than just a slight amount better. So e
