On Any Picture To Get Larger View And More Information.
I suspect that the
following pictures may show a procedure that some
piano technicians will not agree with at all. However,
I have used these techniques in many pianos over the last 25 years,
and have found them to perform better
expectations. I use a similar procedure for upright piano
pinblocks. The transplant of a new pinblock area done in this
manner results in a piano that has not been structurally
modified. (For upright transplants, Click
Of Course, in a Piano
that does not have the pinblock mortised
into the sides of the piano, and glued
to the front stretcher, the block can be replaced and fitted in the
normal manner. I feel that using the transplant method does no damage to
the piano, and results in a very long lasting pinblock with tight pins!
Any comments are welcome!
