January PTG meeting held at Chupp’s Facility
We regularly host Piano Technicians Guild meetings in our rebuilding facility here in New Paris, IN. The local PTG held their January meeting here at our shop and I hosted the lessons and discussions. We went over some Tips, Tricks and Techniques for minor piano repairs. Also discussed was how to deal with difficult and distasteful situations when going into customer’s homes to work on their pianos. (Mainly disruptive or aggressive animals, ect.) The highlight of the meeting was a comparison of five sample hammers on one of our rebuilt Steinway Model A-II Grand Pianos from five different manufacturers. Blind tests were conducted among the technicians to determine which hammers produced the best tone. We also played and assessed the power and tone of Steinway Model D #269017. This fully rebuilt and restored concert grand piano features a custom action and a unique and powerful Western Red Cedar soundboard.
Attached are several photos from the January Northern Indiana PTG Meeting.
