Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards

I saw a post below about Chocolate Audio pianos. So what about Sound Magic pianos? This is a company known for its free VST, Piano One, and there are many other types of paid pianos. (Imperial Grand, Thor, Ruby Piano, Rose Piano, etc)

However, besides the demo they uploaded to the SoundCloud, there are so few reviews and videos from other users, so it is difficult to know the quality of the piano.
Have you ever used their pianos anyone? Is it worth paying?

Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards

I introduces another little black box to my other one yesterday; a fine looking matching pair of bass practice amps. The resonance is comfortably below that which issues from the piano so there's no real uncontrollable spike of sound somewhere down the keyboard.

So; I tries 'em out as you do; each little amp has in addition to the volume control, four tone controls from bass to treble. By fiddling with such, I got a very acceptable, fairly spacious sound which didn't have to be too loud for practice.
Even my wife was quite struck, especially when the Petrof was being aired, which surprised me. She was listening in another room and thought that piano sounded very natural.

I then realised I'd pulled out the headphone socket, so the piano's own backwards facing speakers were making their presence heard. Pushing the h'phone socket back in made a lot of difference to the overall sound and preliminary attempts to rectify this were not entirely successful!

Maybe it's just more time needed, I don't know. I wonder if anyone here has thoughts on this? Four speakers (even mediocre ones) better than two?

Piano Tuner-Technicians Forum

Rebuilding a Chickering Grand circa 1902, "F" scale (63 tenor-treble unisons.) It seems to have been restrung once before, and that technician put no understring felt between the agraffes and the tuning pins, where there is a gradual 1/2" ramp in the plate leading up to the pins, with the wires pressing hard against the ramp. I know some techs prefer to avoid felt on a ramp, allowing the string to slide directly against the metal plate, because ramps like that can cause the wires to "hang up" and jump during tuning, and the felt can increase the drag, making the tuning even harder.

I have no reference for whether or not this 1902 Chickering originally had understring felt on the ramp...perhaps one of you who has restrung even more pianos than me (I've done about 750) knows whether felt was originally there. Of course, for cosmetics, my tendency would be to add some nice thin red understring felt across the whole width of the plate, but I don't want to risk increasing string drag & hanging up if it doesn't belong there.

Thanks friends.
