I think "double copper wound" was an incorrect choice of terminlogy, and thought he meant bichords, as we frequently see wound bichords to the left of the point where the steel trichords of the tenor and treble end (with wound monochords in

Thanks Ed, for your keen insight gained from long experience. I have a question. You mentioned reshaping the V-bar to a more ideal shape. Is it not the case that, after many decades of tuning, the strings will have caused indentations in the V-bar,

Option #1: You could remove the entire chasis of the MP11, and end up with a no-buttons, no-sliders, nothing-but-cables-and-circuit-boards-industrial-looking MPC1. Option #2: Throw a blanket on top of the interface, place a candelabra and flower jug

Proper tone regulation and tuning will put plenty of "sparkles, etc" in a Baldwin grand like you are looking at. Lack of competent, regular service is the norm with pianos, so that is what you are experiencing. Find a great piano technician

I can think of no reason it should cost more to tune a Wegman. In my opinon, they had the most practical of the machine blocks. Rust might make things difficult, but then it always does.
