It's unfortunate that most manufacturers still feel a need to load digital pianos up with all those attention-getting but distracting, and most often unnecessary, accessories. For all their rhetoric about digital pianos being serious instruments, it seems manufacturers are themselves unsure whether the digital is a genuine piano that can be sold on its own merits or a toy that needs bells and whistles to make it marketable. What inevitably happens with the digital keyboards is that the kids get caught up in button-pushing and listening to the factory-installed demos and all the different instrument sounds, and neglect learning to play or create music for themselves, because that's harder. "Enabling" features become disabling for a child: If the digital piano plays or transposes for them, they won't learn how to do it themselves. And as we all know, easy come, easy go. There is good reason why students with simple, basic, old fashioned, real pianos tend to make better progress and stick with it longer than those distracted by the "bells and whistles" of digitals pianos. Real pianos teach students the "postponement of pleasure" principle: That anything worthwhile is worth working and waiting for; also, that appreciation for, and dedication to, piano or any similar endeavor, is directly proportional to the amount of time and effort put in.

Tuning a piano is like tuning your guitar, the difference being that on a guitar you’ve got six strings to perfect whereas an average piano has about 230 strings and each string must be as perfect as possible. I tune my guitar almost every time I pick it up to play, whereas a good piano tuning should last for at least a year. There are normally 88 notes but about 230 strings because the treble strings have three strings each to add richness of tone and volume, the bass notes only having one or two thicker strings per note.

It is true that several Asian manufacturers came to the United States to learn piano building techniques first-hand from the American manufacturers (Yamaha, for example has mentioned this in some of their ads). They also have learned piano-building from European countries such as Germany. Korean companies learned piano building from the Japanese, among others. In this respect, it can probably be said that Asian pianos are really a hybrid of a number of different construction practices, including German, American and Japanese. Korean and Chinese makers introduce elements of their own culture and construction practice into their pianos, as well.
