Jump to new posts Need recommendations to modify my 52" upright. by Vivanco @ 03/01/15 01:03 PM

I have a 30-year-old US 50, should I change the strings? Should I change the hammers to an American hammer like Ronson? Can I get a deeper and better base if I change the strings from the stock original ones??

Your tempo is good, I don't see any reason why you want to play it faster. I don't know why pianists want to play everything so fast, music isn't a competition in being quicker. I like your performance, sound and pace is nice. You should work more

Tuning stability, like a unicorn, is a large mythological beast. No matter how carefully and solidly a piano is tuned, a cold snap, or a heat wave can affect the humidity and swing a piano noticeably out of tune. Whole house humidification systems, a

That 1862 Bechstein is a nice one but it doesn't seem to always record very well . . . it sounds good in those two links. When it comes to the older pianos I tend to go mostly for the Erards. This one from the 1850s sounds pretty good for a 160 or

Cpu overload and/or an optimistic latency setting normally manifests itself as pops, clicks or crackles. Distortion is normally associated with audio clipping - quite a different sound. Try raising the latency of the asio buffer and see if that red

@markalien: I am in a similar dilemma: Roland F-130R or Casio PX-860/AP-460. I could collect a number of hints -- including what to check personally when I can get finally into a showroom with one of the Casios (not yet available in my country). Mos
