Yes, check the keys while it is turned off to check for funny noise or funny feel. Check if the pedal is fine. Not only with foot, but also by hand. If the volume control is a turn-knob or slider (and not a +1/-1 digital control), check if it works

Jump to new posts Re: String levelling issue? by Ed McMorrow, RPT @ 05/23/15 11:11 PM

Mating the hammers and strings is when a silent room is needed. If there is much noise you can't hear the subtle differences. One can tune quite well in some noise but you can't mate unisons to hammers if any noise is present.

The final aim is that, in this manner by correcting mistakes from performance to performance without further practicing, in the end the pianist KNOWS that he can play without mistakes. And this knowledge provides the confidence and ease that makes

I've found that a lot of brand new pianos on the floor sound muted and lack dynamic range. If they're "new" but have been out on the floor for a year or two, the sound really opens up as the piano is broken in! And prep makes a difference
