I sold my piano for string-money. Now I don't have a piano to put them in. What should I do? frown .... Just kidding, lol. I do have a problem though. When I play, it feels like I'm not getting the piano's full potential. It's like it's timid or holding back. It kind of feels plastic-y when I play. It doesn't sound plastic-y. It FEELS plastic-y.. like, when I hit the key bed it just feels... idk... it's very hard to explain. Does anyone know what I mean? And furthermore - how to fix it?

What kind of piano is it?

The first grand piano I bought (pre-owned) had a misadjusted una corda pedal and the hammer was only hitting two strings (without the pedal depressed). When I got it adjusted properly, wow what a difference in volume and power.

It sounds like your best bet is to have a competent piano technician take a look at it…

Good luck.

Sounds like regulation problems. Call a tech.
