One of these pianos was a Marshall and Rose and it produced a nice full sound. The keys had some weight to them and they responded well to the touch. The other piano had a far eastern name which I didn't recognise so can't recall it. This piano was quietly spoken and had a light key weight/touch. It makes me wonder if the latter piano had always been like this or do parts in the action wear so that the key touch gets lighter and the sound generated reduced ?
