Jump to new posts Opened up my Chickering Brothers Grand by pianoman9 @ Today at 02:45 AM

I use Veritune to tune pianos, and I have regulated and repaired uprights, but I have less experience with grand pianos. First thing I noticed with my nearly 100 year-old Chickering is that the hammers were obviously replaced at some point. It's

I wish I had the time Michael, but I'm flying to London on Tuesday for the Music Education Expo (I have a booth, L14 there) and I'm flooded with work... that along with the so many new scores that came out this week. I can't do much right now, sorry.

Hi Everyone, This little musical introduction is a modernistic composition. Up until the D Major/B minor key signature it is based on scales other than the traditional Major-minor ones. The Introduzione opens with an allusion to Debussy's La cathĂ

This is part of a new work we just published, by Italian composer Andrea Granitzio. I will admit that I had never heard of Andrea before, but he approached me to publish his collection... for contemporary kids... I tried to persuade him that this m

I've been using a Gibraltar drum rack as a stand for a Kawai VPC1 for the past few months. I have it adjusted down to 20 inches to fit my daughter and it would easily go much lower. It's rock solid, and can be easily broken down for transport. Here's

Jump to new posts Re: Restore or buy new? Disappointing rebuild... by Retsacnal @ Today at 12:21 AM

I'd be inclined to keep the piano, since it's a family piece and the refinish is attractive, and you also say you like the sound. The main issues seem to be related to adjustable things. For example, you say it's a new action (did you go with WNG, si

I love the Stimmungsbilder.. simple, heartfelt, naively honest music. But I'm glad he didn't compose like that for his entire career.

I found this demo in which I believe Scott Tibbs is using one of the assign knobs to control the sound of one layer. Look for it at the 7:00 minute mark. It sounds like he sweeps a filter which I assume is one of the filter modulation effects. Why no

If you can power a subwoofer, and feed a signal to it, purchase the transducer, mount it under the keyboard. Might work okay for tactile feedback.
