Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum so please bear with me.
I've just acquired the aforementioned piano and it's in pretty good shape. However, some of the wippens are broken and a few strings are missing. I'd like to replace the wippens with originals if I can, so that I can put the piano back into "tunable" condition such that I can assess if the pin block needs replacing(and play it at least). Some wippens have been replaced with the "universal" type - but the geometry of those wippens is simply incorrect and I'm afraid no amount of adjustment will change that.
I've recieved quite a bit of good advice from people I've contacted outside this forum(and may be reading this now) - thanks for that.
So, my question is:
Does anyone have any of these old wippen assemblies sitting around in a drawer or something, and would be willing to part with them? I need about 5-10.
Clearly, this entire action should be rebuilt - but that requires a larger investment which would depend on the pin block. So, I guess I'm trying to get out on the cheap before I invest a lot of $$$$$$$.
Thanks in advance,
