Got an email from one of my regular churches... "bunch of sticking keys right in the middle". We all know that "sticking keys" is a pretty generic term covering a wide range of possible issues!

Here's what I found.

Not particularly. A pencil stub fell on the soundboard, and rolled down into the damper wires. Vibrations might have helped. Stuff like that happens all the time. Most damper rails are not on blocks like that, so usually something that falls on the soundboard will not make it that far.

Of course not! It would lodge against one of the blocks (against all odds) and rattle and buzz there for months.
