Can anyone help me to track down replacement wippens and/or jacks for a Brodmann grand?
I've tried all the spare parts catalogues and none is an exact match
I tried to find the manufacturers, but a web search drew a complete blank!
I know that other manufacturers use these exact type of wippens and jacks, as I came across an identical one in a new Beale grand.
I tried chasing up the Beale manufacturers to no avail.
If someone could help me here, it would be greatly appreciated!

You could try WNG or tokiwa to create custom replacement of those whippens.

They are probably Renner wippens, but they come in different configurations.

We were going to use Renner on my 1916 Weber Duo Art, but they were unable to provide a duplicate geometry. We went with the Tokiwa universal whippens (which have a heel that can be positioned and glued in place). It worked well to duplicate the piano's geometry.

Did the player pianos have a different whippen geometry?

Berninicaco3 - if that was about my Weber, no, the whippens are the same on the regular and Duo Art pianos. The only action difference is the longer key sticks, which must stretch back past the player mechanisms.
