Hello everyone,

My N3X was delivered today, and I just noticed that the pins in the lid hinge are sticking out. Are they supposed to be this way? This was taken directly out of the box, I'm assuming that the assembly was done by Yamaha technicians at the warehouse.

Any help would be appreciated, thank you!

Oh that's good to know, thank you! Is that normal on grand piano lids too? I have never taken such a close look on acoustic grands but maybe this is how those pins are set up.

Yep! Mine looks the same. How do you like it?

Question: does your lid hinge rattle when the lid is completely closed (including the music stand) when playing at higher volumes? Mine does and I'd like to fix it somehow...



P.S. Nice slippers! wink

It's been just fantastic so far. I think I overpaid a little compared to the prices I've seen quoted on this forum (it is out of stock pretty much everywhere) but honestly I don't even care, it is so worth the price.

I haven't played with the lid closed yet, when I do I'll pay attention to any extra noises.

Also thanks! WFH chic lol.

Follow-up: tried playing with the lid completely closed today, aside from a faint buzzing initially there is no other noise on my instrument.
