When choosing and purchasing pianos, what tunes do you usually play to test the performance of the piano?
This is an interesting question. Maybe everyone has different answers. But we need to look at it scientifically.
To see the piano at the piano shop, many piano shop assistants will play some of the "Wedding in Dream" sounds more comfortable, but it is difficult to distinguish the piano tone, in addition to the dull chromatic scale, we usually play some tunes to test the piano's various indicators.
It is suggested to play Beethoven's passion, Hungarian Rhapsody and so on. Under such high-volume and high-dynamic music, the bass is not good, the sound source is not good, the timbre becomes rough, and the sound can't be released. Like in a box, the bass is muddy without depth, the chords are mixed together, the bass and bass levels can't be pulled out, and immediately exposed.
Almost every modern piano has 52 white keys and 36 black keys for a total of 88 keys (seven octaves plus a minor third, from A0 to C8). Many older pianos only have 85 keys (seven octaves from A0 to A7).
The piano feel is an important indicator for buying a mechanical piano. A good piano not only has a good business, but also a good touch. If you feel uncomfortable when playing, it proves that the piano is not good or has not been adjusted well.
The mechanical piano feels better than the electronic piano, but the mechanical piano is expensive and requires special maintenance. The electronic piano has standard sounds and is suitable for people who are just learning piano. If you want to carry it conveniently, you can consider buying a hand-rolled piano. The price is also very high. Cheap, keys can be used 10,000 times and waterproof.
