Where do I get a cantankerous clavier?
Or static charges from the air rush while falling, especially if there were low humidity at the time.

Could you by chance find a Youtube vid or MP3 sample somewhere to illustrate the authentic sound?
Contrary to what the liberal media will tell you, real armies prefer to destroy what they're actually trying to destroy and nothing else.

Where exactly did they tell us this, please?
Correction, I believe it's called a fortepiano, not a piano-forte.
fast-moving detail in a piece gets mushed up and lost on the piano...
A compromise may be to use a "piano-forte", which is the word sometimes used to describe wooden-framed or early pianos. Some of the earlier pianos sounded half like a harpsichord and half like a modern piano because they were built out of harpsichord parts and designs.
You don't get quite the tinny sound of a harpsichord, yet have the familiarity of the piano sound. A clavichord is another alternative, but the sound rubs some the wrong way because of peculiar secondary harmonics of adjacent strings. Thus, an early piano (or a replica) is a good compromise.
Bach actually served as a piano-forte tester, helping early builders tune their designs. By some accounts he kept the industry alive. Pianos risked dying in obscurity because they were expensive to build by the standards of the day. (The harpsichord "plucker" mechanism is far simpler.)
Lack of momentum could have doomed pianos, but Bach actually helped promote them once they passed his tests. Having a reputation for his keyboard playing and publisher of training exercises, his recommendations carried weight. Thus, without Bach, we may not have the piano today, at least in the form we know it.

Mars does have methane, we've detected it before. So the mystery is, what happened to the previously detected methane plumes? Why did they disappear?
Martians fart in reverse.
After all, they have orange skies and blue sunsets, the opposite of ours.
