Hi everyone. I have a 1903 Lester piano that is missing both the sostenuto rod and whatever bracket held it in place. Has anyone ever tried replacing something like this?

I wonder if I could either have something fabricated or modify something from another still existing manufacturer.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Talk to your tech. It is not a do-it-yourself project, if it is possible at all.
