Very interesting. I don't desire those micro tone adjustment capabilities, but one thing that I would want to see is a piano with an adjustable action, similar to the way you can adjust the resistance on those older silent pianos.

I think its a fantastic invention for sure! Certainly no real piano, but same idea. It would be fun to play.

Strange. He thinks the piano is 'Western' tuning. It's not, it's piano tuning. The joy of his instrument is that you can now hear 'Western' tuning by tuning for each key.


snobbyish, yet maybe helpful.

I'm all electronic here, and one of my keyboards has the ability to choose between numerous tunings. I thought it would be cool to be able to do that with an acoustic instrument without having to call a technician. That said, I think the instrument is incredibly impractical and would seem to be more prone to tuning slips, not to mention he skimped on strings which is a backward step IMO. Apparently it doesn't catch much interest around here and probably shouldn't, but I was interested to see if anyone thought it would be something they would consider on a future purchase.
