On Being a Pianist in Kenya - Against All Odds
It is hard enough to train as a classical pianist, even in a Western country with good access to instruments, sheet music and advanced tuition. If you happen to live in Kenya, where nothing of the above is easily available, the many obstacles make it almost impossible. Yet, there are people with an absolute determination to learn. Piano Street has talked to pianist Cordelia Williams, whose new documentary film depicts a new generation on track to break the "glass ceiling" of classical music in Kenya. Read more >>

I have a Steinway Model L built in 2000. It was recently restrung and some minor regulation was done by a builder.  I notice that the hammer line is up-and-down all the time between hammers in some sections, Although I know the hammer line might not be straight, it should be smoothly curved across hammers that are in the same section. Right?

So I wonder if anyone here knows the hammer blow specs for Steinway model L 2000 so that I can check some hammers for a test. Maybe nothing is wrong. Maybe something is off.

Thank you very much.

PS: all parts on the action are Steinway original.
