Stringing…

Today, I finished stringing the Style-X. Here you can see the second section of the piano – the brass plate held in place by many screws, wrest pins (which are used for tuning the piano), and nice neat coils of steel string. In the background the blue felt is to stop the small sections of string between the wrest pins and the studs from vibrating.

Studs…

The Style-X studs (also known as “Agraffes”) have had their first clean in preparation for buffing and lacquering. The stud at the front has been buffed to make sure the cleaning was adequate to achieve a good finish.
