As with tone quality, this is a matter of personal preference, but only within certain limits. If the touch is too light, your fingers will get weak and lazy; if too heavy, you can injure yourself over time. This is not usually a problem with new pianos; all manufacturers’ instruments, when properly regulated, are within a reasonable range of touch. But with older pianos, the touch can vary widely with the condition of the instrument. You will need some assistance from someone who plays, such as a piano teacher or technician, to determine if the touch is within a normal range. See the article on touch and tone in “Piano-Buying Basics” for more information.
