I thought "prep" was more of a term used for new pianos. For used pianos, it's probably about how much parts they're going to replace or the level of servicing. Voicing or regulation runs maybe around $500-$1000 retail, if it requires him

I guess everybody better draw there own conclusions from those beatrate tables. What I get is that usual M3/M6 test should be replaced by (for example): Not "G3B3 = F3D4" but "E3C#4 < G3B3 < F3D4 and G3B3 should be closer to

Bridge pin lean angle determines string offset and plays a key roll in string termination. It is easy to elongate the holes with hand drilling making it possible to have a bit looser fit. False beats can happen with termination mistakes. Bridge pins

I agree with BDB. If sanding old hammers creates more harsh tone, the piano would benefit from new hammers. You can try steam voicing though after sanding.

Hey, this is a cool project you hacked together . . . don't worry about the naysayers. Their favorite piece would sound exactly as homogenous if someone cared to splice 28 interpretations together, too, regardless of their pretension.

Sanding hammers has a number of uses. In new hammers, it removes irregularities in the felt which were either there to begin with or a result of being clamped in the cauls. It also mates the strings to the hammers. In lacquered hammers, it removes ir

Short sticks can be as short as three inches, and as long as a foot. Some pianos have three sticks with those approximate sizes.

Back in 1978 I had a Yamaha CP-30 and an ancient Wurlitzer electric piano, with tines and a pedal. The Yamaha had MIDI and the Wurlitzer had a nest of dead mice inside.

Wait, the Cerisano M3/M6 test? What is that? I did what? My test is the m7b5 test, which is based on the usual 3/6 test being accurate, and the 6:3 octave being narrow by the smallest amount. But you are doing exactly what I was hoping to find out.

That is a very bad crack. The pins will come loose, and the piano will not be tunable.

When converting my old beast of a Hammond, I discovered that it was possible to add an octave at either end of the keyboard. I don't know if it was intentional, but the fit was perfect. So I now have two 7-octave keyboards, and am looking at maybe sq
