Dear Forum Members:
I'm still looking for, at the least, a sustaining pedal (right-side pedal) for an Everett grand c. 1900. At the most, I'd take the entire pedal-lyre assembly.
If you reply by e-mail, I can send an attached photo of things as they stand (hang?) now (not good!).
Please help or advise, if you can.

The usual way we deal with these things is to replace all the pedals, so they match. That is not a difficulat job for a knowledgeable tech.

You might check with Dennis Chupp @ Chupp's piano in Goshen, Indiana. He did a restoration on a vintage Everett Concert Grand from that era a couple of years ago. That piano was amazing, by the way. Another source might be the Antique Piano Shop located outside Knoxville, TN. The focus on vintage piano restorations. They might have some thoughts or spare parts they might part with.


Like BDB said, I'd say your either looking at replacing all 3 pedals, or getting really lucky and finding someone with a pedal that matches yours laying on the shelf after a rebuild. It might help if you uploaded a picture of the pedal with measurements. Often piano pedals look the same between manufactures, so maybe something off of an old Chickering, Knabe, etc. might match.

BTW, the Everett Piano is a very high quality piano. It was designed by the Swede John Anderson who was the Superintendent of the company. Before coming to America, he was the official cabinet maker to the King of Sweden, and was considered the best of the best. With his engineering background he became quite interested in pianos. In many musical trade magazines he was known as the tone scientist.

I rebuilt an Everett Grand a few years ago, and I would buy it back in a heart beat. Very well made and designed, sad that they are for the most part forgotten.

Another possible option to the pedal if you still have the original (especially if it's a fancy unique one) is it may be worth taking it to a welder who is good at brazing and have it fixed.

I agree Chris! When I was @ Chupp's Piano in the spring of 2016, the concert grand was strung, but the action was still being rebuild. Dennis grabbed a bass hammer laying near buy and struck a couple of strings. The sound was amazing! I only regret that I was not able to make a return trip and play it before it returned to it's owner. It was a customer restoration for a musician here in Indiana.

Here's the video the Chupps team made of the piano before returning it to the owner..

Here's the Chupps webpage about the restoration.

Here's my previous thread about it here on PW.
