I have started learning Bach's invention no. 2 and hit a roadblock with ornaments on the first day. I'm a bit of a nerd, so I did my research, looked through every edition in the public domain, listened to numerous recordings on youtube, consulted CPE Bach's Essay and Bach's tabl...

Garritan CFX shows the number of "layers" being played at any given time, which I assume are the voices stitched together to produce one or more keys played. With damper off, any given key pressed and held varies between 1-3 voices. With damper pressed, the player also ...

Pianoloverus, that sounds more reasonable than the table that I used (using 1985 numbers). And how does one really know if the instrument was built in Hamburg or NY? The Steinway store I used has been out of business for years. Chris...

My only recommendation is that, before you make your decision, listen to some Wes Montgomery, Grant Green, Jim Hall, Pat Metheny, Joe Pass, Kurt Rosenwinkel, and some of the other great jazz guitarists. I sense that you're basing your feeling about the piano based on how it sou...

Thank you all, BDB, according to the Steinway salesperson when I bought the piano, it was built in Hamburg, and he felt that that was an important selling point. But according to the technician, it couldn't have been built in Hamburg because the shape of the pieces on the side...

I have just returned from viewing the Piano Auctions sale in London. Apart from the double Pleyel (the subject of another thread, which I shall update in due course) the most interesting piano (to me) was a Kaps 6-foot grand of 1888. This piano is exceptionally handsome, with a...

Using the PBuyer depreciation schedule we get $78,400(present cost for a model O) x 35%(assuming the piano of age 30 years is in excellent condition)= $ 27, 440. Of course, this is meant to be a ball park figure and there would be a fudge factor of + or - some amount (I'm guessin...

'selling to a friend' might involve more variables than what you're seeing in the listed prices in the different markets you've observed. [obviously, knowing nothing of your friend or the friendship, does s/he really love the piano, and are they affluent to the extent that a few...

Seems to me your ears will tell you the answer and a bit o' thought will tell you why. No digital piano sounds like an acoustic, because as stated, all strings as well as other things resonate. The samples are cleaned up, and only those resonances deemed sonically acceptable to t...
