Concertmaster Baldwin too loud

Our ten year old upright Baldwin concertmaster piano is too loud. I heard there wake a chip that could allow a softer sound, one that would still have all the keys being heard

SOURCE: I have a Technics digital piano with 1 dead key.

If your piano is the same as mine, there is a rubber membrane with contacts imbedded in it that sits on top of a circuit board. The key pushes the contact in the membrane onto the contact causing a note on. What happens is the cylindrical part of the membrane that holds the contact can get torn and the contact will no longer travel in a straight line to trigger the note. The entire membrane strip has to be replaced. The strip on my piano was discontinued and I had to manufacture one from an extra Roland membrane that had some bad contacts in it. You will have to contact Technicsat www2.panasonic.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/PNAEndecaSearchCmd for support. If you don't feel comfortable tackling the repair yourself consult a good piano tuner/repair place in your area for advice.

SOURCE: Kenmore top freezer, Refrierator shuts off with loud clunk.

It sounds like you may have a compressor that is working hard against high pressure due to a dirty condenser or a condenser fan not running or blocked. If all is well otherwise, the mounting springs inside the compressor may have broken or are weak. The only fix then is a new compressor.

SOURCE: It's a Roland HP-7e digital piano about three years old.

You may need to clean the contacts which are usually conductive rubber. I explained stuff for another Roland problem with two keys that were intermittent. I have an EP-7 that I had to do the cleaning of the key contacts. Use 91 or 99 % Isoprophyl alcohol to clean BOTH the conductive "pill" (Black under silicone rubber domes) AND the traces on the board where they press. Clean gently as the traces have a hard black coating.

SOURCE: Kurzweil digital piano unpredictable voices and volume

The contacts of various switches and keys are likely dirty. They are often conductive rubber and need cleaning with 99% isoprophly alcohol and q-tip. Clean both the conductive rubber pill and th circuit board traces they contact.

Chas f. Netzow upright piano Serial number 47686


I should write this out to save me keep typing it. Remove the front of the piano and the lid for the keyboard. Remove the middle C key completely. You may find the manufacture date and its full service history written in pencil on the side of the key.

Hi Robyn:
serial 10305
This was one of the original pianos made by this company in 1904. The serial number is the determining factor in telling a piano's age.

The worth rests on the piano's viability, configuration, and age.

Old uprights are generally worth little, especially if they are not serviceable. The furniture value is secondary.

If your piano is in perfect condition, inside and out, the value would top out around 200.00, USD.

What you have there is a typical upright piano, which more than likely has more furniture value than instrument value.

Age is not good in the piano world and pianos deteriorate year by year whether they are played or not.

Are you using this piece as furniture, or instrument?

Curious on the value on a Baldwin upright serial #1484454 style 2056A


I hope this helps. I can tell you that pianos age like people. How old is your Baldwin? Baldwins also are not made anymore, but I don't think that makes them particularly prized. Alot depends on its condition. I do not know to what the serial # and style # refer. If by upright you mean not a spinet or console, this type is usually found relatively inexpensively (<$1,000), especially if it is not a player piano. I would suggest that you take several good pictures of it to a local piano store for an estimate.

What is my Baldwin spinet serial #1003855 worth?


Baldwins from the 70s and 80s are a bit notorious for various mechanical (and tuning) problems. Most of them pianos were good, but they might have a few parts that were bad, so be aware that you'll need to tune it to sell it, and you may need to do some repair work.
Most prices are listed by model number, not serial number, so you'll need to figure out which model you have. I found a pricing guide, but I don't know how recent it is. There is contact information on the page that might help, though. Baldwin Piano Prices
