Hello guys!

Today I have 3 questions for you folks, I'd appriciate it if you could answer any of it.

1st question: Is there a way to "lubricate" that circled part, so it does not make sound because of the friction between wood and leather?

2nd question: Is there a way to make the Damper (right) pedals travel distance less vertically? I really have to push it down to fully disengage the damper felts, and it can be really unconfortable sometimes! (Tried adjusting the knobs, cant really adjust the travel distance)
3rd question: How does this middle pedal mechanism supposed to be working? The middle pedal usually has a moderator felt, but this one is just connected to the left pedal.

Thank you for your time in advance

1st answer: That probably is not where the sound is coming from. You need to isolate the sound before you do anything. The most common source of squeaks in the damper pedal is a dummy damper lever, with no wire or head, that is supposed to push back the damper bar when the pedal is let up. If there is one, just remove it. The second most common is the action moving on the bolts.

2nd answer: This was just a cheap way of using the middle pedal on a vertical piano. I have heard that they should be adjusted so that the hammers are moved so that there are three hammer blow differences, but frankly, changing the hammer blow is not a good way to change the volume of sound from a piano.

Thank you!

The squeak is definietly coming from that part, its the wooden rod moving and rubbing against that leatherish part, I'm 100% sure. If that sound would be gone, the pedal would be silent at all.

Teflon powder would lubricate the bushing cloth. You could try a little talcum powder instead, if you don't want to bother buying Teflon Powder just for that one job.

Really, these are little things your regular tuner/technician should deal with.
