I would like to ask if our piano is 'normal' and if not if there is an easy adjustment that can be made to correct the heavy feel of the keys. The only information about adjusting key weight I can find on the internet refers to drilling the keys and adding lead weights which seems a little extreme to me for what is essentially a new piano.
Any advice much appreciated

have tried the weight test suggested using 1 penny coins. It takes 19 coins to depress the middle C key with the sustain peddle pressed as described. According to the Royal Mint's website a penny coin weighs 3.56g so this puts the weight required at 67.6g.

Once the key is depressed I have removed coins as suggested. When I get to 8 coins (28.5g) the key rises.
