What's to disagree with?
I hate unnecessary repairs too. This particular player works at my college. "This person" is one of those, shall we say, "string breakers?" I can replace "a wire" file the Vbar, hammer, voice it, regulate the let-off, whatever, it doesn't seem to matter. They are kind of like a drum player who breaks drum sticks at will. Whamo, another one breaks or even the same one.
If I had my way, I'd replace the wire from about F-5 roughly, (I forget off hand where that first break from tenor to treble is on that piano) to C-8 completely and file the pressure bar at the same time to eliminate any string grooves. While it would probably help, it wouldn't eliminate the string breakage. Not from this person.
The problem too is that It's like pulling teeth sometimes to get them to fork over the bucks to do that sort of work. It happens infrequently but yet not frequently enough for them to see fit to dole out the cash for the whole job instead of doing it piecemeal costing more in the long haul.
So goes life.
