No, tuning the piano doesn't make the keys taller, but, if the regulation is adjusted on your piano, then that can make the keys taller. Chris, Perfect Piano Tuning, L.L.C., Phoenix, AZ

I really do not think it can be done. At one time, piano keys were made from ivory. If the ivory began changing, you could do things to it to keep it white. Today's piano keys are made of plastic. There is nothing you can do with yellowed plastic piano keys. Throw them away and replace them with new, white, plastic piano keys.

What are weighted keys on a digital piano?

This refers to the attempts, some remarkably successful, to make the keys of a digital piano feel just like the keys on an acoustic piano while playing. With a digital piano, you can have keys that are extremely light, and/or attached to simple springs. The only thing needed to make a sound is for an electrical connection to be made. In an acoustic piano, the key is actually a lever that transfers your energy to what is called the 'action', the mechanical device that propels a felt hammer toward the strings (or wires), causing the sound. The feel of an acoustic piano is distinctive, and a very important part of playing for many who were trained on acoustic pianos. Weighted keys also make it a little easier to go from the digital keyboard environment to playing regular acoustic pianos. Some, including myself, swear by weighted keys on digital pianos, and they are much more satisfying to play. If you make it a habit to sample pianos of every kind as you shop or as they become available, you will sense the difference, if the difference is important to you.

Are there any special sounds that the piano can make?

Why do several keys on your piano have signatures?

A key signature on a piano is not a piano key. In my case, I actually have signatures on the wood vertical sides of the first 2 keys and the last 7 keys. I have tried to research their names, but the Weber piano was built in 1889.______________________DAWG replies:Based on this info, I can only assume that you mean that someone literally signed a name on the sides of some of the keys?Could it be that the piano was repaired and a repairman who worked on it left a record? Here's a link that may help.http://kansascitypianotuning.com/piano-tuning/piano-repair/I think it's possible that a clever repairman made notes of which keys were repaired/replaced, possibly to leave a record of which keys were under warranty.If there are no date codes I'd be inclined to believe that the signed keys were those needing repair, rather than the signatures on nine keys representing nine routine service calls for tuning for instance. If the piano was subject to high humidity (in Louisiana for instance) then multiple key replacements from swelling may have been a regular service problem in that region.I'm just spitballing because in my type of service work I leave a detailed record of the work performed for billing and warranty purposes. That way another service tech doesn't have to see the entire service history to know if a replacement part fails more than once. This would have been good business, especially before phones and computers made accessing the service record so easy.Without seeing the sigs that's my best guess.Make sense 2 ewe?

What are the major differences between the harpsichord pipe organ and the piano?

The piano is the only instrument where you can change how loud the notes are by pressing the keys with different amounts of pressure. The pipe organ is the only one that makes sound by blowing wind through pipes. The piano and harpsichord make sound by plucking strings. The keys that are white on a piano are black on a harpsichord, and a piano's black keys are white on a harpsichord. Some organs have the same key colors as a harpsichord, while others have the key colors of a piano.
