That is why I will give the action bolts a turn and move the top of it closer to the strings. That gets the hammers a bit closer without making the dampers lift too soon.

That's right Bob and BDB. Been there and done that on both of them but, in my case dampers were coming off to late, barely coming off from the strings. I determined this way was the best way for this peeeeanerrr. smile

Just got back from a week of vacation! Loved it but for the CRAPPY weather! It was 100 on Tuesday. Within 24 hours, the temperature had dropped 50 degree's and the wind picked up. Of course, a storm came along with and rain so, we weren't to happy about having that until this morning. But, oh well, it was still nice getting away.

The last time I had spoons to regulate, I bent them forward, stuck the action back in the piano and pressed on the damper levers while lifting the wippens, so that the lever would bend the spoons back. Worked real good!

Cast "some bread on the waters" at a tiny warehouse theater. Was hired to tune one petite grand and donated a CA treatment, a bass string rejuvenation and a rough tuning on another petite grand (took about 90 minutes). They are considering having some piano duets, which I would just love to hear, but this second piano was not tunable, until now. I had unsatisfactory results with CA in the past, but may have over done it. It seemed pretty good this time.

I am very fortunate to have been so busy over the last year, and yesterday was a great day of field work where my efforts and attention to detail were truly appreciated by the clients; it was my first visit to all four...

First up was a 1928 Steinway L that hadn't been tuned in at least 5 years. All original parts except for a poor quality restringing using the original block about 20 years ago. The bass was about 10 cents flat and most of the tenor and treble was 30 cents sharp, not exactly what I was expecting! But before I could tune it I needed to protek about two dozen hammer flanges - definitely a vertigris problem. The client's parents bought the piano new the year they were married, so she was thrilled to have it working again.

Next was a Bosendorfer 200 that the owner bought new in the mid 80s. He was dejected, and really disappointed in the way the piano was now performing, even though new hammers were hung (on original shanks) last year. The hammer job was very good, although new knuckles would have been nice. The crazy thing, though, is that the tech didn't bother to reregulate, and apparently kept making excuses as to why it was perfect as-is. Hammer blow was about 35mm, key dip was about 12 or 13mm, drop was above letoff. Gee, no wonder why hammers were blocking on soft blows and it sounded like crap. Key bushings are shot and rattling, and the keyframe was also knocking horribly - which took all of 30 seconds to correct. Did some sample regulation to the right specs which astonished the owner, and will be returning for a complete key rebushing, regulation and voicing soon. Also changed out some of the crustiest DC pads I've ever seen and discovered the humidistat was installed 15" away from the humidifier. (That was done by another tech.) Anyway, client was beyond thrilled. He never even knew there were pads in the D.C. As usual, this Bosendorfer tuned beautifully and is one of my favorites in their line. What I still can't figure out is why the tech that replaced the hammers (a well-known and highly esteemed one) would leave a piano in a state like that, create and end up losing an unhappy client, and make excuses rather than do the necessary work to make the instrument function correctly. I was basically floored when the owner revealed his name, so I guess things are not always what they seem, are they?

Then on to a Steinway B, also from the mid 80s that was 40-70 cents sharp. (How many extra pounds of tension is that???) Floated pitch at +8 and quickly realized this piano has likely never been regulated or voiced. It could be so nice with a day or two of work and a Dampp-Chaser installed - we'll see...

Last up was a Steinway S, restrung in the last few years with some seriously gigantic tuning pins in the original block - not my favorite Steinway, but it tuned up pretty well.

4 today. First a 74-note Wurlitzer spinet that was pretty close to 440. After that, a Weaver spinet that was a bit low and also had a broken jack spring, leaving a dead, somewhat bouncy key. Got that fixed and tuned. After that, an 1897 Emerson upright with an open face block that's been well-maintained and was pretty close to pitch. Finished with a 1907 Melville Clark ex-player. From one extreme to the other today; fairly modern spinets to old uprights.

I had a fun day today. Active but, enjoyable. My first tuning was a nice Schimmel grand, 6' 8" or so... Tuned for some concert coming up this weekend. My 2nd tuning was an RX 6 that I tune monthly. 3rd piano was a nice 30 year old Schimmel studio that I also tune monthly. Both of these are at the college I service for. While I was there, I had to check a "sticking key" on a Yamaha grand. Turns out that dampers were ringing through. Adjusting and tightening the damper guide rail eliminated most of the problem but I also had to regulate quite a few damper wires to seat properly and align some heads up with the strings. Then, I was off to touch up a few wires on a Steinway B that I had replaced a couple of months back. From there, I went to look at a Hobart Cable console that was "tinny" and left her an estimate for filing hammers, regulation etc. Great day.

Tomorrow, I have a 9 AM tuning, an 11 AM tuning and then we leave for vacation for 2 weeks after which, I attend the Piano Technicians Guild convention so, I won't be around here after tomorrow (maybe Wednesday) for a while!!!

Thanks, Jerry! What has been particularly bad was that I have been trying to prepare the program for print for about a month, and got nothing from the conductor. Now I hear he needs a narrator. We are trying to get the Mayor; it would be ideal for her. Had he responded when I asked for the program, it would have been a slam-dunk. Or if she could not, then we could have gotten someone from TV news. Either way, lots of free publicity!

Ah, craigslist specials...Why does the client call you after they've already made the deal for a completely horrible craigslist piano, usually a spinet???

Over the last two weeks I was very busy: Tuned two Bosendorfer 200s, a Bosendorfer 214, an Irmler 188, 4 Estonia 190s, an Estonia 168, an Estonia 225 (their beautiful new model) a Steingraeber 205, a Yamaha C2, Kawai RX-2, a Kawai 506N, a Steinway B, L, and S; 2 Steinway Os, pitch-raised a 150 cent flat Schafer & Sons console, pitch-lowered an early 80s Wurlitzer console that was about +40 in the low tenor (with the decorative movable sound "shutters" covered with speaker grille cloth). CA glued and tuned an old Estey grand.

Also tuned a Blüthner Model 1 for a Chris Botti concert (good to see someone making big money playing jazz, and he is a great player...so is his pianist Billy Childs) and a Bosendorfer 225 for a recording studio. (For the brilliant Peter Apfelbaum, who can seemingly play any instrument at the highest level; an amazing composer too.) Reshaped and voiced the hammers on another older Estonia 168.

The humidity in NYC has been brutal this year, although the last few days have been much drier and pleasant - pianos without humidity control have been anywhere from +30 to + 75 cents in certain areas of the piano. Almost every grand I have serviced in the field over the last month needed glide bolt adjustments.

I have the next five days off from servicing pianos - and all I'm gonna do is play my own piano and write some new music.

Put long stakes in the garden so my beans will climb. Later, I'll plan to climb the thing and see if the giant does, in fact, have a grand piano.

Looking forward to the weekend...some down time and some shop time. Life is good!

Well, it is not always about pianos here. Sometimes I get interesting requests to manufacture or assist with making an unusual project.

A while back a young fellow contacted me a while back seeking assistance with his project of building a shadow box. The box was to be built with side rails to hang earrings on, but he also wanted to have a music box component to this item.

I thought this would be an interesting and fun project to do, so I kept a record of the progress to completion.

The photos are mostly screen shots of a design program. Then there are photos of the coloring and finish. At the end there is a small video sample of the music that this unit will play. I am not a fan of Pachelbel Canon in D @ 415.3Hz but it is pleasant enough…..

One more thing; my shop cat was fascinated by this project and loved the music box when it played. If you watch closely on the left side of the video at 1:25 she hears the music from the garden and comes into the shop to sit and watch the roller in the music box go around. You can see her coming through the doorway….

Thanks Sparky,

The cat; she is a funny one for sure. Either litter pebbles or full of food would be her choice…..

It was a fun kind of project. We had to do the video at the end several times over; I was trying to imitate those PBS educational videos without laughing; some of them came out sounding like Mr. Rogers and are quite hilarious….”hello there friends”….like that…..mistakes in the language and on and on….in one of the videos I state that this is the finished music box and then open the lid with no hinge attached….stuff like that……

I’m gone…gotta get to the courts……..

Ordered an A-440 fork. The pure 12ths D3-A4 temperament is working pretty good. Don't know if I will continue to use a C-fork for smaller pianos or not. 4:2 octaves and pure 12ths meet in the middle of spinets. No real need to set the temperament within a 12th.

Nice easy day today... I only tuned 3.

1. A KG-5C grand, replaced wicks, tuned to A/440. Pd. $170.

2. Tuned a Yamaha C3 that I did a year ago, beautiful piano. I arrived for our appointment, he forgot. I went home, ate an early lunch, called him, he couldn't apologize enough. I went to my 3rd tuning early, went back and tuned this piano for him. He was so appreciative that I came back today that he gave me $25 extra for "gas" how nice! Pd $175.

3. Tuned a Yamaha grand Model G0. I tuned it last in 2001. It was 1/2 tone flat. Raised it to pitch, tuned up nicely. Cleaned the piano a little bit too. Pd. $180.

Tomorrow, I'm working on a Yamaha C7 action. I'm filing hammers, dismantling the action from the key frame, cleaning and lubricating everything and then I'll be regulating the action on my bench.

Thursday, I'm tuning 2 pianos in the morning and then I'm returning the action in the afternoon at which time I will also tune and voice it. That's a nice job too. It should come out great!

Friday, I'm tuning 3 more pianos then I have a service call and then we're heading up north to the cottages for yet another week of vacation.

I'm so busy now that I'm booked solid all the way through September. I slowly starting to turn my 3 a day schedule into a 4 a day. Won't be long and it'll be 5 a day again which I am desperately trying to avoid! But, we'll see! At least it's great to be busy!



I love this job!
