Heavy Metal

By far the heaviest and cumbersome part of the restoration process is the removal and refitting of the frame in a grand piano. This Broadwood has various soundboard repairs including refitting of a detached bridge and the fitting of around 15 shims to properly fill the cracks that have opened up over the years. Restringing has now started and the next piano for stringing arrives shortly; a large and decorative Bluthner upright. The workshop doesn’t get much busier than this.
