Re: Yamaha GT20

The GT20 is of course slightly more expensive that normal digital pianos. This must be expected when you consider the amount of workmanship involved in creating the very special key action. The warmth of the piano sound is outstanding. Play it side by side to a real piano( a good one), be critical a...

Re: piano veneer: which year ?

Veneer is found mostly on older pianos from about 25 years and back. Most piano companies don't do veneer work now because it is an art form, and the market won't pay for art anymore. The best pianos today just don't have it. Old uprights are where some of the most beautiful veneer work was done, an...

Dark brown wood with 2 foot pedals. It has a few scuffs and marks on the legs, but this gives it character. It has been valued and it is 'in fantastic condition and has great movement inside'.

Re: how to start

To start learning the piano you should begin by getting yourself a piano or a keyboard if you don't already have one. You can then proceed to learn the names of the notes and to identify them on the piano keys. If you simply type "piano notes" into Google, you will see many articles that will give y...

Re: Kaps Grand Piano Action

Unlike your car, computer or digital piano, a quality real piano will be as good (and possibly better, as most new hammers take time to settle) in 10 years time as it is today, based on normal 1 hour’s use per day. After 20 years it will need light adjustment and toning of the hammers by a qualified...

Re: CVP or CLP?

The CLP 320 is a great improvement over the CLP 220. With 128 notes of polyphony, 3-level AWM dynamic stereo sampling, and damper with half pedal effect, we were quite impressed with this instrument also considering that the CLP 320 is the entry-level model in its class. One of the most dramatic new...

Re: Quality used upright advice

You might also consider a decent digital piano. Many of them have wheighted keys, a fine piano sound, and you can practice with headphones on. Yamaha makes a particularly good one for about a thousand, and the Casio Privia series has a decent piano sound (although the keys don't quite have the respo...
