I have a Baldwin upright that's at least 30 years old. It won't hold a tune, many of the keys are sticky or difficult to depress and the middle octave is now picking up harmonic? actual notes? from the octave below. To anyone knowledgeable, does this sound repairable? Is this model of piano worth expensive repairs?
I'm trying to get my 4yo playing but I think the crappy piano might be hindering her progress. I know her teacher is always telling her to not press so hard, but I think she's learned it from our piano. In replacing the piano, should I look for a better upright, or are the new digital pianos worth investigating? I'd be interested in a digital only due to their much smaller footprint - we have a tiny house. I expect all three children will spend some time learning the piano over the next 15 years so happy to invest.
