Another Recall - sticking pedals

Yamaha just recalled 20,000 pianos due to a problem with the pedal sticking, causing pianists to play faster than they normally would and resulting in a dangerous number of accidentals. The sticky pedal also makes it harder for pianists to come to a full stop at the end of a piece, making it extremely risky for audiences in the first three rows.

Thanks for this, Gail!
