TUNE ME IF YOU CAN!

Piano strings in the treble are normally arranged in sets of three. (Except – see last post)

Here’s a Zender piano where you can’t tune the very top string because the action fixings get in the way of the tuning lever. The only thing to do is unfasten the action and ease it forward, out of the way. But then you can’t play the note!

This is just the sort of thing that made British piano making grate.WP_000537
