Aliquot bridge…

Fitting the Aliquot studs in my current Style-VI rebuild. The piano has had a new soundboard, wrest plank, new turned legs and lyre, and black polyester finish – I’ll be stringing the piano this week before completing the action rebuild in the week leading up to Christmas.

Style-X dampers…

Seen here, the dampers in the third section of the piano, complete with a little damper on the side of the head for the Aliquot string. At this stage they’ve not had their fine regulation – that will happen this evening!

The piano is starting to sound very nice now, and will be finished and ready for shipping to the showroom at Handel Pianos by the end of the week.

Lettering…

First job today was to paint the black lettering (using enamel) on the Style-X frame. Quite a fiddly job, but satisfying! The frame is now ready to return to the case. (I just need to finish the case now…!)

Style-X…

After far too long in storage, my 1909 Blüthner Style-X ( 7’6″/228cm) was put back on its feet! I played it for about 10 minutes before the “teardown” process began…

Have a look under the “Current” heading for what’s going on at the moment.
