I'm not a teacher (and I don't live in Australia), but why don't you get one of those pedal 'extensions' (- I don't know the exact term) for children who can't otherwise reach the pedals? I've seen them used in YT videos . BTW, I've been listenin

slickvguy, I think that unless you want to play La Campanella with the speed of Kissing, there is nothing to be worried about Kawai action speed, but if you feel uncomfortable with it there is no sense to buy it, however, for sure it will be not lim

There are foods that give me all sorts of problems. Eating only brown rice for 2 weeks shouldn't hurt anyone (though funny enough that's one of the foods that give me problems).

938A could be a lot number or something. Not important. KM681000CLG-7L is the type and it describes the internal organisation of the chip and its speed. Service manual - http://www.shema.ru/cd/us/2/data/rp100.pdf - says, it should be HM628128LFP5 SOP

It's not so much the cost of shipping that discourages me from looking closer at used east coast pianos. It's the cost of flying out to evaluate the piano, which might be wasted if I decide the piano's not in great condition.

When a Kawai is too mellow, they often respond to "battery" voicing - pushing the tension on the hammer higher into the shoulders. Hopefully the tech was speaking of "polishing" the hammers with very fine grit paper without remov

Well, if you are going to get an Aeolian Grand, a Mason Hamlin would be one I'd look for. Being on the Ocean, this might be rusty. Can't tell from the photos, though.

Thanks, Guys. Good Info. I've spoken with my tuner, and he'll investigate this.

Thanks for that, I love the bass, it's very deep and growly. Not what I'd call digital in general.

If I had a Steinway M that needed new hammers, Renner hammers would not be what I would want. They're too hard and too heavy. I would probably select a tech who was experienced in using Ronsen hammers.

Friends of ours have a Yamaha U3. From the serial number its from 1978, made in Japan. This was relatively easy to look up. The piano tuner that came to tune it apparently said that there are or maybe could be issues with the strings? Some kind of ad

To me, stickers on personal possessions are a form of graffiti, and if you are one of those who have to go leaving your visual mark on the world, go to it. Most of us outgrow that fetish, however. As I said above, its your keyboard, do what you wa

That is usually easy to fix. Often it is only hammers which are not hitting the strings evenly. If you gently push the hammer against the strings with the damper off, and strum the strings with a plectrum, you can hear whether the strings are hitting
