Greetings, This is the norm for new pianos I have seen. The felt on the jack-stop button has compressed, allowing the jack to move distally under the knuckle. This increases the work, via friction and duration, needed to play through escapement. A new action HAS to ...

To Keith's point on incorrect action geometry and resolution of the problem, most piano technicians and quite a few rebuilders do not have the skill set to isolate these problems in a piano action, nor correct them. The problem will either never get fixed, or the piano is sold a...

Interestingly my new piano, Renner action, was delivered with the hammer knuckles resting exactly at the center of all the jack heads. I know this is wrong- the back edge of the jack head should align with the back edge of the knuckle core. Can anyone imagine a senerio where t...

Yes, I was going to point out that the Yamaha started off with a higher price. The N3 I played in a shop last week is from, what, 2013 or 2014? So it had years to go down in price. And you can hear that the sound engine is dated. The new Kawai sound engine is in an other league....

Some of the latest DPs are indeed very dynamic, rather more so than most acoustic pianos. That also takes some controlling; I guess you can't adjust the level of dynamic clout either. So you'll need to check some out. Try some acoustics too, in order to make a comparison. But ...

Even though the CMS40 are really nice, they definitely lack low-end and no amount of eq-ing will compensate for that. The LSR 305, while in a significantly lower class, have decent low frequencies for piano, but they get a little boxy for the lower octaves. Up until recently, I h...
