If you can find a Steinway, Bosendorfer, Beckstein, Chickering, Baldwin or Mason & Hamlin grand from prior to WWII in still original and good condition you can hear lighter, softer hammers.

You mean dyeing the existing hammer felts, not fabricating new hammers with previously-colored felts? If you're talking about changing the existing felts, now you're dealing with chemical reactions from the dye components and new behavior (packing? c

I had about a year of piano in 4th grade, then two years of chorus in high school. That was good for reading music though I can't sing worth beans. I took another year or two of lessons in my late thirties, but was never happy. Partly because I did

Glue up samples of different hammers on shanks. Lift the damper and try to strike the string as close to strike point as possible. Listen to differences. It's not a perfect example but it is an example of what different hammers can do. Easier and mor

There's no native way to print a kindle ebook. So again, you would have to convert it first (again, check out Calibre for this, it's free, BTW). And if you are converting anyway: Try to convert to EPUB, which is the other big ebook format (used by ev
