Blüthner Style-VII completed…

I started work on this particular piano about five years ago, but life and other pianos kept pushing it down the queue! I’m pleased to say that Blüthner No.81880 is now complete, and will be available to view at Handel Pianos from tomorrow.

Future projects…

Last week I made a (very rare..!) trip outside the workshop to my local timber merchant. I was buying Maple stock to make new legs and a lyre for a Blüthner Style-VII I bought last year. Currently the piano is finished in black polish, but it’s my intention to re-veneer the piano in maple.

There is SO much going on in the workshop at the moment that I’m not sure when I’ll get round to this rather special project piano. Keep an eye out for further information!

New parts…

Testing new action parts for the Style-X. I’m using little bulldog clips to simulate the weight of the hammer, and playing around with the geometry of the action to find a setup that induces the least friction, and the most  movement from the hammer – whilst at the same time giving enough control and repetition without the feel of the action being too heavy…. All good fun!
