Must admit, bought this expecting it to be a bit of a gimmick but actually seems pretty good to me. I might not be tempted
to give my piano a full tune , but I now know much more about my piano in general. Will definitely be useful when finally getting around to buying a grand piano.
I may even consider second hand based on the criteria given. Would be interested in what everyone else thinks.
Maybe I bought because I've gradually become really fed up with the tone of my B1, but can't do anything about it until I move house in the distant future
Piano technicians are not born, they are educated, and that takes a lot of tuition and more than that, a lot of practice.
The opinion above is purely that of PianoGuy and is simply the opinion of one person ....
If you're buying a piano, try as many as you can and buy the one you like, not a similar one of the same type.
To me, there's too much danger of doing serious damage if one hasn't had at least some practical (as opposed to book based) training.
Do read the book: Your comments on it will be much better informed and you will not be afraid to tackle minor problems. My Haynes Manual on the MGB helped me get the engine out and to a rebuilder. But I got my mechanic to overhaul the brakes! It's just a matter of what you are comfortable with. John Bishop
Excellent book imo and an insight into a great art form.
