I don't think one can judge her hand size or her reach very accurately from the picture. While it seems clear that her hands are not very large, she can reach an octave with 1-4 in her LH so can probably reach more than that with 1-5. She has to be able to comfortably reach more...

The basic point is that every piano I know can and will significantly improve if getting not just "good" but superior service. We just sold a certain grand to a local teacher who chose one particular piano from our floor after trying several others. It's not always goi...

Don't want to offend somebody at all, so please don't interpret it this way But how much is it different from, say, cleaning services? I don't think a lot of house owners want to be present around during those, to observe them for several hours. Many, I believe, use this time to...

I was in a similar situation a year ago and if my two cents can be helpful I will just throw them out. :-) The first choice really depends on to what extend the piano was "restored" and how well the restoration was done. The term "restore" can mean a lot of ...

Putting the time in and achieving results through effort is a great way to look at it -- and enjoying it, too, as it sounds like you are. Also true about getting over the psychological hurdle. On that note, thankfully, there is are so many "teaching pieces" out there, m...

Sure I'm just getting tired of that constant bragging and loud claims of new horizons which are about to be reached we hear daily - when in fact almost nothing is done except for somebody busily doing nothing. So, my point here was: until you'll see those pianos in your local st...

And conversely, not all the tools you can buy from piano supply houses are useful, as we have discussed on here! There are certain tools, though, BLTOH, which have got to be the specific tool, and cannot be adapted from anything in a hardware store. The piano tuning lever is ...

Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
Yesterday at 09:53 PM
I believe most digital actions I've tried have noticeably squishier key-down stops than acoustics, mainly due to the greater requirement for noise damping. I've thought this of the GF1 and RM3 Grand actions too. I've never tried a Casio GP so it'd be interesting to see if it's ev...

The textbook for a class I'm taking is a heavy tome called "The History of Western Music." In class we refer to it as the Burkholder book, but, lo and behold, the authors are Burkholder, Grout, and Palisca. Now those author names hold some extra meaning and clout in m...

How come the store did not notice these problems before selling, and why didn't the tuner for the first in-house tuning address the issues. Something is very wrong here. Is there more to this tale?...

That's interesting, rXd. I totally see what you mean, but (which I didn't make clear) I was thinking from the perspective of the listener to the CD recording. I can't abide poor unisons on a classical solo piano CD! But of course, maybe that's just because I'm listening with a...

Steinways will not sell a soundboard and wrest plank to a rebuilder, but they will fit a soundboard and pin block for that rebuilder and allow the rebuilder to finish the piano themselves. At least that's the case in Europe. The Steinway could be a good buy, it's certainly goin...
