John...thanks much...turned immediately to Peter's web site which, as you
suggested, was most interesting.
It would be helpful, in addition, for me to get some of the details of your
particular experience. I'm curious, for example, about the make and model
of your instrument and what, exactly, Peter did to improve it. Also, if you
don't mind, the general price range.
I'm using a "standard" Yamaha [I think it's model number is YBC-220] which,
without significant tweaking, has proved to be both reliable and relatively
easy to play. It is a bit stuffy in the second register, however.
It seemed best to have some more information before I contact Peter...any
additional comments will be appreciated.
Thanks again...Fred S.
