1909 Conover Upright Grand

wooden piano

I had the pleasure of tuning this beautiful antique Conover piano. This piano had a brass flange rail. Many of the brass flanges had split and broken, causing the hammers to wobble in place. While the exterior case of this piano is in great condition for its age, the interior action is in need of refreshing. I’m recommending all new felts, buckskin and new graphite on the repetition jacks to eliminate clicking and a loose, sloppy action. Otherwise, this piano was a great find. The customer found this piano abandoned in a foreclosed home. What luck!
