Ooften there is a setting for the pitch. Set it to A at 440 Hz which is usual standard. HOWEVER make sure it is really a pitch difference as the ear can be fooled by the "hammond" type sounds.

I was wondering if it is normal that my piano down-tunes while I am playing.


No, it's not normal.To determine if it's a setting glitch or a hardware problem, perform a factory reset and see if the problem continues. If it does, it's a hardware problem and needs to go to the shop. Here's the reset instructions-

How can I repair roland digital piano model ep 95?


Sounds like something is on the board and is causing the problem. Try cleaning it with rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab, or spray clean it with electric contact cleaner spray. Let it dry and give it a try. Be sure to unplug the piano when you're in there working on it. Also, check for loose resistors, diodes, etc. Re-solder them if they're loose.

Need to downsize, have a Yamaha Upright Piano, serial # 1250568


Well my friend, not knowing exactly what model this is, makes this a difficult question to answer as the market for upright pianos is really shrinking, but that's not to say it has no value. I can tell you that all pianos need tuning after being moved even down a flight of stairs so don't worry about that detracting from the value. More details would be helpful in answering this question.

Am looking for details about an old piano in Australia. I'm not sure what company made it, but is has "Manufatured in Germany for Gordon's 40 Flinders St, Sydney" inscribed on the lid. It ha


Like clocks and watches back then, generic no-frills pianos and other musical instruments would be sourced "cheaply" from speciality mass-producers and brand-engineered - just like today really...
In those days "made in Germany" was an indication of quality - a definite selling point just as with clocks and watches "Swiss Made"

In reality offering second-line goods for brand engineering was a way for company owners to use spare manufacturing capability without affecting the reputation of their main lines.

Tracing brand engineered products back to the source can be a difficult task just as it is today. The chances are Gordon's bought the instrument from a dealer or agent rather than from the manufacturer as they would wish to remain as anonymous as possible.

Serious collectors gather lots of information about the stuff they collect and it is that type of person you should be seeking. I suggest you begin by using your local directory to locate piano tuners, repairers and sellers and dealers in antique musical instruments. Some gentle questioning might lead somewhere...

The problem you're encountering is actually a feature, called stretch tuning. While real pianos are tuned in this way it's meant to sympathise with their natural 'organics' and might sound wrong on a digital instrument. The solution is to turn stretch tuning off. The manual should be able to tell you how.

E5 flat and off pitch


Inspect for damage, especially hairline cracks. Also inspect for contamination or dirt that will change the resonant frequency. AND VERIFY the tuner you are using is accurate. Do not compare to a piano which MAY be out of tune... in fact, pianos are STRETCH tuned, that is the higher notes are SHARPED and the LOW notes are FLATTED deliberately. Comparing your chimes to a piano, the E5 would appear flat. Use a good electronic tuner to verify the pitch, not a piano,

Tuning


If you are marginally interested in the process of tuning the piano, and your main motivation is to save the cost of a professional tuning, bite the bullet and engage the services of a qualified tuner. Trying to do it yourself will become overwhelming very quickly. If, however, you are genuinely interested in the skill of tuning, and willing to invest the time and effort to become good at it, then get yourself a star tipped tuning hammer and some mutes (eBay will do) and start to see what you can do to make your piano sound better. Begin by getting the whine out of individual notes by tuning the strings to each other. Search out the "Every which way you can" tuning article by Kent Swafford on your favorite search engine for an introduction to aural tuning. If you're inclined to start out with an electronic tuning aid, check out Tunelab Pro - a free, fully functional demo is available for download to your laptop. Remember, however, that an electronic aid only shows you whether you've hit your target for any given string. Learning how to finess the physical motions of tuning so that the string stays on target for more than a few minutes is another process altogether. If your first couple of forays into trying to tune don't drive you around the bend, then consider finding a qualified piano technician who would be willing to provide lessons for a fee. If your interest holds up, investigate the resources for learning that are available through the Piano Technicians Guild. Their source books and monthly journals are second to none, but unless you are committed enough to the process to become an associate member, the non-member prices for materials are pretty high. "Piano Servicing" by Reblitz is another excellent source of knowledge. It might be in your local library.
