Greetings,
I was just asked a question I couldn't answer, (I hate that). A fellow tech called and had a broken agraffe on a Hamburg Steinway, made around the turn of the century or before, (85 note). He wanted to know if these had different threads than a New York model of the same vintage. Anybody know for sure?
Thanks,

The easiest way to tell would be to measure the threads on the broken agraffe.

Pretty sure it is the same as NY. NY did make some wide spaced tri-chord agraffes they put in D's and C's.

The Hamburg factory was opened in 1880 and for the first couple of years it was a mere assembly station for parts delivered from New York. My Hamburg B dates back to 1886, has 85 keys and basically all original parts left are from NY, including plate, bridges, soundboard and - I assume - agraffes.

I'll soon enough find out since I'll get it restrung and will replace all agraffes. Those will come from: https://kdpianoparts.com/ and they seem really knowledgeable about details like that, so I'd send them an eMail.

What's the piano's serial number?
