Tuning Yamaha CP-70 MSnow 43 minutes ago
Well no matter how I hide piano work continues to find me , so today a request from a touring band to tune their Yamaha CP-70, now believe it not in my 40 years in the business this is only the second request to service/tune this model and believe it or not the previous was in 1986 from Peter Gabriel in the UK just before I moved to Boston to take the tech. position at BU, Peter Gabriel at his converted farmhouse music studio outside Bath UK was having Paul Macartney and Linda over to do some studio work , it’s all true folks , so at that time I was totally an aural tuner, which I may do on this request that came today but wondering if you have any tips for setting FAC on Accu Tuner on these gnarly instruments esp. in the bass with strings barely 24” long….thanks.

Age/value of piano? jont1965 Yesterday at 08:57 PM
Hoping I could find someone who could shed some light on age and possible value of old piano. Have an upright Stuyvesant Style 206 P, I see number 16067 posted inside cabinet just above hammers; and it also has 3333 etched into wood on back side of piano. I'm not sure which, if either, of these numbers is the serial number? Cabinet & all wood is in very good condition, has ivory missing on 1 key.
Just hoping someone could tell me approximate age and value if any of this piano. Thank you to anyone who can help!

RIP Minoru Nojima BeeZee4 05/18/22 02:05 AM
An exceptional talent, he passed away May 9th, 2022 at age 76. Was runner up to Christina Ortiz in the 1969 Van Cliburn competition.

Made few recordings, but the ones he did make (Nojima plays Liszt on Reference Recordings) were so superb that they were later plagiarized by Joyce Hatto.
I own both Reference Recordings of Nojima plays Liszt and Nojima plays Ravel, and his reading of "Gaspard de la Nuit" is a chilling, hair raising, scary spectacle, best heard in the dark.

Pedals SouthPark 05/16/22 10:51 PM
Relating to this thread http://forum.pianoworld.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/3216656/yamahas-lp1-triple-pedal-looking-for-internal-wiring.html

Somebody is looking for wiring diagram and details for Yamaha LP1 three pedal module, which needs to be mounted/fixed in a particular way in order to become rigid and useable. Possibly needing options to have triple pedal functionality in other ways - aside from the possibility of modifying the LP1 case (or much more than that).

Another possibility ------- double-sided tape underneath three individual pedals of suitable functionality, with the cables all linking up to a suitable connector ------ so far, not sure if it is proprietary ----- (but even if proprietary, could easily just grab a connector from the LP1 but cutting the cable, and connecting up the appropriate wires from the three individual pedals).

Pedal to MIDI adaptor overthinker 05/13/22 01:18 PM
Hi,

For people interested in getting the FP10/30x/D1 as MIDI controllers and which either don't support continuos pedaling, multiple pedal units or both, I've found an adaptor that allows using 3 pedal units as long as they connect with a one single jack like the one from Studiologic SLP3-D

I haven't tried it yet but I emailed the company that manufactures this module (Poland) and they confirmed it would work for 2 pedal units like Fatar VFP2-10 Stereo (tested) couldn't confirm about the SLP3-D though.

Price is 49€ and you get full pedalling features no matter what the controller is, I'm not linked to the company in any way, here the link:

https://beatbars.com/es/footswitch-to-midi.html

Concept is very similar if not identical to the other one (US based) found in this forum as well, only more expensive:

David

Kawai GX vs Wilhelm Schimmel Jameezy 05/12/22 12:05 PM
I am shopping for a new piano for home use, and I like both of these models. Anyone have personal experience with either of these? I have only had the chance to sit down at them once or twice, hard to get to the galleries due to location and schedule.

Kawai GX2. ($33K)

Wilhelm Schimmel W180 ($30K)


I am leaning a little towards the W. Schimmel, just based on gut feeling when sitting down at the pianos. I know it is made in the Schimmel factory in Poland, but my understanding is with German parts. Both seem still like quality instruments. The biggest hang-up I have currently is actually the finish on the W180, only available in high gloss at the local gallery and I want a satin finish, would be about $2.5K to "satin-ize" it..


In general, I am looking for a grand around 6', preferably new (though used not a total deal-breaker), $35K upper limit for cost (after tax). Any other make/model suggestions appreciated. Thank you!
