String termination problem on this Bluthner model A? - 12/06/12 06:45 PM
The OP of Sound Problems in the Piano Forum has some metallic sounding notes in his restored Bluthner model A after a recent tuning.
Here is a recording: http://youtu.be/eJnXbRtc9B0
Del thinks the problem is probably to do with the termination at the V-bar:

Assuming Del is right, and bearing in mind Bluthner presumably shipped the piano with the same V-bar, I'd guess some of the new coils may be the cause of OP's problem.
Looking at the photo do you think that could be the case? There is no pressure bar in the tenor.
PS As Dan Silverwood pointed in his post below there could also be termination issues at the bridge.
