Who did the first sounboard replacement outside a factory setting? The earliest I know of is Steve Jellen, and he did his work in the Fifties. Cliff Geers, maybe? though I don't know his timeline.

Trefz in Philly was doing it in the 60s and probably much earlier.

Wasn't it Barnard in the mid 1960s? wink

Soundboards were replaced on harpsichords, particularly when Flemish instruments were reconstructed in France.
