When we'd play this in college in '72, the "correct" volume would start the walls shaking before you could actually hear the Mooog..... Saw ELP in concert about '76 I think, Market Square Arena - Indianapolis

Why does this piano have many broken strings? Has your technician deduced a reason. For a piano of this age to have several broken strings means hard use or abuse-or problems with string terminations. At what point along the string are they breaking?
