FAQ - Piano Forum
29 seconds ago
Hi All,

I would need your advice on the following points. I'd like to buy a piano for my spouse, most oriented toward jazz than classical music. She quite likes the Bosendorfer sound, which triggered my search for such an instrument. At this moment, I managed to find (for about the same price) either an upright Bosendorfer 130 new or a used Bosendorfer 200, 1997 in excellent condition [40k eur].

1. What would you recommend between the two ? Does this upright really sound "like a grand" ?
2. I never came across a Steingraeber and sohne, but read very good reviews on it. Is it comparable to the Bosendorfer ?

ps: in all consideration 40k eur is the max budget we can afford.

Thank you,

AudioDeluxe often has interesting piano VSTs on offer. AIR Mini Grand, which was originally a part of Avid Pro Tools (still is) but is now sold seperately, can be had for only $19.

https://www.audiodeluxe.com/products/air-mini-grand

This might fit the bill for those who don't want to spend too much, don't like the modelled sound, like that of Pianoteq, but want something a bit more authentic sounding, yet requiring very little disk space.

AIR Mini Grand is not up there with the likes of Ravenscroft, Ivory II pianos, Garritan CFX, but it might be enough for some people. According to videos, it seems one can get quite a good variety of sounds out of it.

Hello all! Hopefully this isn't violating forum rules but I wanted to let you know that the music store I take my lessons at has a Fender Rhodes for sale for $1600.00 USD. It's located in Tucson, AZ. According to the staff it is fully functional and all original except for the foot pedal. I get nothing for this but it seems like such a cool classic instrument that I thought somebody from this forum might want it. They aren't set up as a online retailer so you would have to either pick up the instrument in person or arrange shipping. Here's the company info: http://www.lessonsnmore.com/

Here is the problematic measure.
My question is: are there any rules for striking the black keys? Should the fingers be prepared before striking the black keys?
