I've posted this in the tuner section of the forum as well, if this is a problem please go ahead and delete the post.

This is a Pleyel like that used by Chopin with the original hammer-felts and hammers.

The sound is darker and softer than modern pianos.

Alfred,

Bravo! Henri Paper was a genius. Some of his ideas shape what we know as the modern piano and sadly, a good part of his work is commonly attributed to others today.

Thank you for the video.
