Hm... Are You a Human?
Piano Backcheck Felt - for Vertical Pianos. In Tune Press, LLC, a publisher focused on music education and technology, is pleased to announce Pianos Inside Out , a new book by Mario Igrec, an award-winning pianist, piano technician, and rebuilder. Igrec takes an in-depth look at the history, design, and maintenance of the piano, and provides practical guidance to anyone who wants to learn how to tune, repair, regulate, voice, rebuild, or improve the action performance of pianos. The reader will discover how to evaluate the piano, assess what is needed, and develop a rebuilding plan. He or she will learn how to restore a keyboard and action, select and install new hammers, rebuild dampers, restring the piano, replace its pinblock, repair the soundboard, regild the plate, and refinish the case. Covering a wide range of concepts, from introductory to advanced, Pianos Inside Out puts between two covers all the advancements and understanding gained by the piano industry over the last 30 years.
This in-depth lecture presentation will help you gain a significant edge as a piano tuner and technician. Do you understand what an inharmonicity curve is? How do inharmonicity curves interact across the range of the piano? How do coincident partials look when represented graphically? Can you calculate the fundamental frequencies of adjacent notes? Do you understand how to convert between Hertz and cents in different ranges of the piano?
Pianos Inside Out
Flight of the Bumblebee - Rimsky-Korsakov (arr. Rachmaninoff)
As much as a pianist can learn from this book, it is the technician and student of piano technology who will benefit the most from it. The skills required for piano restoration are exceedingly diverse, and few people can afford a complete, systematic training and apprenticeship. Pianos Inside Out aims to satisfy that need by offering comprehensive and concise instructions for practical work. It provides an overview of piano history, and in-depth discussion of all aspects of piano construction, design, and maintenance, followed by step-by-step instructions on tuning, regulation, voicing, repair, and rebuilding. The book was written with the novice in mind; no previous knowledge or experience is expected. For repair and rebuilding, prior experience in working with wood, metal, and glues will be helpful, although, again, this is not a prerequisite. Copy and paste this code into your Wikipedia page.
Please Pass It On! Key: Admin , Global Mod , Mod. Print Thread. Hop To. It was recently released and I just got mine in the mail today. It is by far the most complete book that I believe has ever been written on piano technology. The Reblitz book up to this point has been an old standard as a manual on piano tuning and repair.
