I work out-of-town about 1.5-2 weeks per month, and have finally decided to get a portable DP that I can have in my hotel room when I'm away from home. I've been considering the ES7 and P255. I was hoping the P255 would be the one, since it's 10 lbs

I second the advice to look at Piano Buyer for MSRP and "on the street" prices. Being the proud owner of a YUS-5, I can attest to its beautiful sound, good looks, and extremely practical music desk. When I compared it to the U3 in the showr

I'm new to Ivory II and am feeling a bit overwhelmed about how to get it to sound as close to an acoustic grand as possible. There are so many effects/dials to adjust and I just wanted to ask a community what they're favorite setup is on Ivory. Whi

Welcome to the forums. Of course you play this wonderfully. Bravo! My only little criticism would be about the drag at about 1:49. The drag here was too much, I would prefer a gradual transition. And I just hoped you could play on a better piano

Personally, I feel that issues related to the hammers are what make the biggest difference in the sound, followed by the design of the stringing. Soundboard design is important, and materials, size, and other soundboard characteristics follow from th

We've been happy with Amsterdam Printing. We like the "Inspire" pen. It is a big upgrade from the cheap plastic pens that are so common. Many of my clients are surprised at how high-quality it seems. It's somewhat heavy which gives it a ver

I think my main issue with the strip for temperament tuning is this: You finish with the strip in and are very happy with the results of your carefully tuned temperament. Then when the unisons are pulled in you find some drift. But it is not as clear

I think moving the chair back a little is the most important change you should consider. Because of your back problem it seems like not leaning back in the chair is not a possible change at present. I don't think your posture is poor at all. Althoug

Thanks Hendrik for opinion. That's what I heard that Kawai has a better keyboard. But samples from CFX and Bösendorfer probably made me more convinced. In total, I'm still not 100% determined. I think even on the Kawai C 15. Hard to choose
