"...rxd... sounds like a model of car..."

lluis, if you can't support your argument by anything better than an outright ad hominem attack, you would do better to keep silent. It's not the kind of board where such is tolerated for long.

Yes, you are right.
But, FIRST, I think, Mr. rxd must clarify (apologize) his unjustified attacks against Mr. Olek.

I think Mr Oleg makes attacks on others all the time. It is hard to tell, because his writing is so unclear. Because of his poor writing, I consider everything he says to be unjustified, in the most literal sense of the word. I tend to ignore him, except when what he says may be construed as harmful, which is pretty often, unfortunately.

I do not understand what he said about the sustain of the piano. I think the sustain of that piano is about par for a 45 year old Kawai. New strings and hammers would help, I know, but they are not in the budget, except for those strings which have been replaced as they break, which do not count. I ignored his comment, but it seems to have poisoned other people's perception.

Then, why didn't you simply say that in the first place?

He sounds to me like a really talented amateur who hangs around the profession and then totally falls apart when the real job has to be done. I've known quite a few.


rxd:
Was you drunk or what?


I've known a lot of people like you, too.



Really? Do you know me, TOO?
We can begin FIRST for this sentence.

(Me, and other, are waiting for your apologizes too, FIRST).

Maybe RXD is a new McLaren model. Bet that has gobs of carbon fiber in it!

Nobody in their right mind would criticise your tuning, we all know pianos that are doing good service in general purpose rooms with no budget for better maintenance. It's a credit to those pianos and their carers that they sound as good as they do.
Some of those rooms don't have a piano any more, obliging anyone using the hall to rent their own.

Great job. BDB

I am reminded of the number of halls t have not been charging separately for the use of the piano. When they do, it doesn't reflect true value when I tell them to consider and compare the cost of renting in if their piano was not made so readily and conveniently available.

There's no guarantee the extra income would be spent on piano maintenance.
And oh! The abuse those house pianos get.

(point of interest, it was published that the famous Wigmore hall was spending ú16,000 P.A on piano maintenance a few years ago. Probably nearer 20 now. 2 x 9' concert instruments one or the other, whichever has been chosen gets daily attention and more plus servicing for both every 10-15 days. The five smaller dressing room and reception room instruments only get 5-6 times a year).
