I've heard Paderewski editions are heavily edited, but I'm not sure. They're not that cheap neither.

Has anyone tried the New Bach Edition? It looks pretty neat and all, but I've never used it. The Well-Tempered Clavier volumes will probably be the next music book purchase I make, so I was wondering of a good edition for bach. (under the price of henle verlag, please! lol)

Henle Urtext is excellent though in the Chopin Etudes they don't distinguish between the fingering found in the autograph versions and the early print editions. Wiener Urtext (Vienna Urtext) is very good.

I sometimes like the urtext editions which don't add fingering like Bärenreiter Urtext and Carisch Urtext which makes the sheet music uncluttered and easy to read, Carisch Urtext is also a little less expensive. My volume 1 of the Beethoven Sonatas is Edition Peters Urtext and there are no measure numbers!

If anyone is thinking of buying an urtext edition of any of Chopin's works I recomend looking into the new Polish urtext called National Edition, by PWM Edition http://www.pwm.com.pl/index.php?Name=sales&Lng=2&Seria=82 , I am thinking of buying the Mazurkas in this edition.
