Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards

OK. I guess I just never really paid attention to how it looks. To me, the CA form factor looks a lot like any other number of Yamaha/Roland/Casio type console pianos--tiny and spinet-like, taking up as little space as possible. It's perfectly reasonable for some people to despis...

It is odd that people are concerned about mice in their piano over mice in their furniture, food, or storage areas where they make nests. I’d be looking at the underside of the couches in the basement, or the cupboards in the basement storage area before I was concerned about ...

I’ve read about her more than thirty years ago. She was a phenomenal child prodigy. Can you imagine she gave her orchestral debut at the age of seven in Paris with Alfred Cortot conducting. I believe she could play all of Chopin’s output before her teens. Her stamina and tec...

For most manufacturers, a piano 7 foot or longer would not be part of their regular catalog, so any piano in that size range is likely to have been better quality than the rest of their line. So I evaluate pianos by the quality their construction as I see them, not by a particul...

Very simple, email Bluthner to confirm. I will say in my almost 12 month search throughout Europe I never saw any original condition (very very poor) pre 1915 Bluthners with anything but round legs. And all Jubilee Bluthners even to date have the traditional round legs as well....

Greetings, I have a number of customers with 40 year old pianos that have 100 in/lbs in the block. If a piano has less than 50, I classify it as sub-marginal, since 50 in/lbs is my own limit. I prefer to tune around 100 in/lbs, but the "stiction" and how it moves i...

I find that Yamaha historically makes some interesting choices when it comes to their stage pianos. They don't really seem to chase the spec sheet as much as you'd expect from a major top-3 player. Their previous flagships didn't even have a graded keyboard. And the CP4/40 don't ...

Yamaha has a number of stage pianos that are arguably due for an upgrade, and they did hint that theywill be doing so in January. Which ones though, who knows. In the case of the CP300, it's been overdue for a LONG time. ...

Composer-pianists—virtuoso pianists who compose works to showcase their own performance skills—were a common sight in 19th and early 20th Century concert halls. Today, they are a rarity. Until recently, the list of prominent composer-pianists stopped at one: Marc-André Ha...
