What kind of action would be in a Broadwood straight strung 7'4" semi concert grand with 85 keys, made in 1895? I was looking at one yesterday but there was no room to pull the action as the piano was pretty tight up against a wall. This piano has been rebuilt with a new pin block, #2 pins, strings, damper felts, hammers, etc, etc, but I was wondering about the action type. Just playing it, it didn't feel "modern" but didn't fee bad either. What say you?

I have moved this question over to the technicians forum, it was my mistake as I thought I was posting it there to begin with.
