These hammers are on a Steinway A. Does anybody know what they are. Seem like they are Abel hammers.

It does look a lot like the Abel Natural hammers. Although I’ve only seen them with blue underfelt.

Yes, this looks like they have Abel Natural Felt.

It also looks like one of the Abel hammers for the S&S Model A (item no.273 in their web shop) with wood removed all the way up the back of the moulding when the tail was rounded.

Yup, those are Abel Naturals. All the ones I've come across have the crimson underfelt.
