(back) Subject: Re: Grand Pianos From: "D. Keith Morgan" <aeolian_skinner@yahoo.com> Date: Sun, 22 Dec 2002 06:44:14 -0800 (PST)   Dear John:   Most builders of fine pianos (Steinway, B=F6sendorfer, Mason & Hamlin, and others) use only solid spruce soundboards. I doubt if any of them would even consider using a laminated soundboard.   Even so, I have played lousy pianos with solid soundboards, and good ones with laminated soundboards.   Many people get very upset when they see a crack in a soundboard. Cosmetically, this is undesirable, but if the ribs underneath are firmly glued on, the cracked soundboard will not rattle or buzz, and more often than not, this is completely insignificant insofar as the sound is concerned; in fact, Henry Steinway once said that he was surprised when ne encountered a Steinway in the field which did NOT have a cracked soundboard. The people who get so upset and vocal about this don't know what they are talking about.   For years, Kimball built pianos with laminated soundboards. I probably don't need to tell you about the sound quality of those. In order to try to improve their pianos so that they could compete with Yamaha, Kawai, Samick, and Young Chang, they began to use solid spruce soundboards. I am told that the solid soundboards made them sound a little less bad, but I couldn't tell much difference. Kimball is no longer building pianos.   D. Keith Morgan     --- "John L.

Keith Morgan" <aeolian_skinner@yahoo.com> Date: Sun, 22 Dec 2002 07:23:07 -0800 (PST)   Astin-Weight did make a few grand pianos in which the hinged end of the top was at the treble end -- the opposite of what it usually is. These were not the "cocked hat" pianos built before 1900.   The pianos Astin-Weight made with the treble end hinged tops were small instruments built for the home, and were not concert instruments. I doubt if one of them ever ended up on a stage to be turned 180=BA or any other angle. Why should they? There are too many Steinways around.   D. Keith Morgan   Don Weight himself told me that they no longer build grand pianos. The grand pianos built today bearing the name "Astin-Weight" are built by Samick in Korea.     --- Alan Freed <acfreed0904@earthlink.net> wrote: > On 12/18/02 11:52 AM, "First Christian Church of > Casey, Illinois" > <kzrev@rr1.net> wrote: > > > has the top hinged the other way from > > standard, and also, I believe, is squared off, not > rounded in the case. > > How very strange!

Kimball is= no > longer building pianos.   Circa 1968-9 I was a pastor in suburban Baltimore. I had a reed organ in m= y living room and a harpsichord in the dining room=8Boh, and a pathetic upright piano in the entrance hall--but no decent piano. A new pastor moved in to = a neighboring parish. The people there learned that his wife was a VERY competent pianist, and thought they'd like to welcome her with a grand for the rectory. Very nice thought, but then they discovered what such things cost. End of plan--until someone came with a local Elks club bar or something that was ready to dump an 1893 Knabe with a fine rosewood case. Tons of drink-stains on the lid, etc., but what the heck? They brought it in. The rectory was not BUILT for a grand piano. It filled the living room. Nevertheless, charge on forward--until it was discovered that the pins couldn't be held in the pinarail at all, and staying in tune was impossible (OK for a bar, but not for a serious pianist).   So pastor and wife decided to put it in the back yard, and fill it with ric= h loam, and plant flowers in it. That's when I heard of it, and demanded tha= t they let MY guys come and get it; they agreed, and my guys did just that. And, even though it had to be tuned pretty often (the pinrail is not replaceable in Knabes of that date; it's part of the case structure), it gave a lot of pleasure to lot of people. (I kept the lid open when company was expected, and the UNDERside of the lid was virginally gorgeous.)   Alan

The print date is 12/4/01 and the subject was "McMurry Soundfont." They were placed on pipechat.org for others to download. I just subscribed so can someone tell me if they are still available and how to access them.   Thanks.   Bill Lyon Digital Artisan owner

I "think" i might have copies of them on my Hard Drive and if so will send them to you privately   David -- **************************************** David Scribner Owner / Co-Administrator PipeChat   http://www.pipechat.org mailto:admin@pipechat.org

(back) Subject: Tierce from Undulating Rank From: <Kzimmer0817@aol.com> Date: Sun, 22 Dec 2002 22:42:02 EST     --part1_11d.1c22abdd.2b37e00a_boundary Content-Type: text/plain; charset=3D"US-ASCII" Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit   List,   There are probably problems with this concept, but I'd like to ask if = anybody has tried this before with success. I understand that, for the Tierce 1 = 3/5' to form a proper Cornet, it must be tuned a perfect fifth. Therefore, it cannot be successfully derived from a unified rank.   The recommendation was made to me to take an undulating rank and derive = the Tierce from it.   I "think" that the intervals are flattened slightly in Well-Tempered = tuning. I'm not familiar enough with tuning to know if all the various intervals (except the octaves, of course) are "tempered" to the same degree. I understand that some undulating ranks are tuned slightly flat and others slightly sharp.   1. Is there a standard for how far off pitch a Celeste or Unda Maris is tuned.   2. Is a Celeste rank actually in tune with itself - but simply each note being a fixed amout off tune from the rank with which it will be played?   3. In creating an undulating rank, is it possible to "detune" the = undulating rank such that its quint would be a perfect fifth from the rank with which = it would be paired as a celeste. When played at the 1 3/5' pitch, it will = form a proper Tierce; when played at 8', it will undulate.   I'd appreciate your comments.   Thanks, Keith   --part1_11d.1c22abdd.2b37e00a_boundary Content-Type: text/html; charset=3D"US-ASCII" Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit   <HTML><FONT FACE=3Darial,helvetica><FONT SIZE=3D2 FAMILY=3D"SANSSERIF" = FACE=3D"Arial" LANG=3D"0">List,<BR> <BR> There are probably problems with this concept, but I'd like to ask if = anybody has tried this before with success.&nbsp; I understand that, for = the Tierce 1 3/5' to form a proper Cornet, it must be tuned a perfect = fifth.&nbsp; Therefore, it cannot be successfully derived from a unified = rank.<BR> <BR> The recommendation was made to me to take an undulating rank and derive = the Tierce from it.<BR> <BR> I "think" that the intervals are flattened slightly in Well-Tempered = tuning.&nbsp; I'm not familiar enough with tuning to know if all the = various intervals (except the octaves, of course) are "tempered" to the = same degree.&nbsp; I understand that some undulating ranks are tuned = slightly flat and others slightly sharp.&nbsp; <BR> <BR> 1.&nbsp; Is there a standard for how far off pitch a Celeste or Unda Maris = is tuned.<BR> <BR> 2.&nbsp; Is a Celeste rank actually in tune with itself - but simply each = note being a fixed amout off tune from the rank with which it will be = played?<BR> <BR> 3.&nbsp; In creating an undulating rank, is it possible to "detune" the = undulating rank such that its quint would be a perfect fifth from the rank = with which it would be paired as a celeste.&nbsp; When played at the 1 = 3/5' pitch, it will form a proper Tierce; when played at 8', it will = undulate.<BR> <BR> I'd appreciate your comments.<BR> <BR> Thanks,<BR> Keith</FONT></HTML>   --part1_11d.1c22abdd.2b37e00a_boundary--
