Today I worked with Tim on a Steinway at BHA. It was a hands on restring of a Steinway grand. Had a great time. We put on a new set of bass strings and then did the initial tunings. I did a restring with Jack in the beginning and that is when I started in on my piano tech learning. Today it was more hands on and I learned a ton doing this job. It helps in this field to get you experience next to techs who have high skill level and I was able to take the time to perfect winding and making very nice coils. I’ll post some picts later.
This Steinway got over-sized pins and new key tops.
If you have a nice piano and it sounds dead in the bass, you may consider a re-string of the bass section. This will make the piano sound amazing compared to old tubby bass strings.
