It is said that fine porcelain becomes brittle if not used - that the temperature changes and other physical aspects of handling, filling and washing, help to keep the porcelain stronger and slightly more flexible.

Do you think playing - keeping strings and soundboard moving regularly - has any analogous effect on a piano?

I am not thinking here of known physical effects like knuckles becoming compressed, felt parts wearing through or compressing, grand damper wires being polished by their guide rail bushings etc.

I'm thinking specifically about motion of strings and soundboard. Does regular playing make a difference?

"you cannot enter the same river twice"
I think that if we viewed it's problem from the point of view of physical phenomena, then changes are inevitable there. It's exist here. Can we diagnose this using special digital instruments? Our sensations of the subject may be subjective, I suppose.
