Not hermetic seal, but unless you leave the lid open or have its back against the airco, the piano is pretty much closed. Dust will not travel through the piano, it falls down.
Yes, dust falls down. But it also blows around with air currents. There's more than gravity at work.

Static is probably as big a deal as gravity.


I'd be a far better pianist if I spent the time I'm on this forum playing my piano instead.

Are you certain about this? ‘Static is probably as big a deal as Gravity’.

Gravity won all sorts of awards; including best actress for Sandra Bullock.

What has ‘Static’ ever won?

Lol.

Good point. Static never gets the same recognition. Different appeal and only really attracts those that aren't too influenced by Gravity.

Tends to only to attract over a much shorter range than Gravity, but can be better in the correct circumstances. Greater potential.

I guess static bricked more electronics than gravity grin

I used the red felt key cover on my N1X for a few days when I first got it, but then I noticed some red lint being left on the keys and decided it was time to stow the felt. Haven't used it since.

I also was the one who used Meguiar's synthetic car wax on my N1X (the only person I know of on this forum to do that smile ). It works good at filling in any micro blemishes and makes light dusting easier. However, I've gotten lazy and have been using Cory Piano Polish.

A few simple sprays every week of so and gone are the finger prints, dust, and cat paw prints mad.

God Bless,
David

Are you talking about the KEYBOARD? Or talking about elsewhere inside? The hammers and felts inside will probably create their own dust when the piano is played. But that's outside the scope of the OP

I don't expect static has anything to do with this. FAIK wood can only become static if extremely dry like 5% which you have only immediately after it comes out of the drying chamber I think. But maybe for pianos with large amounts of plastic?
