1936 Steinway S
This piano had been restrung and refinished about 25 years ago. Action work had also been done sometime in the past but it was not in good shape. Parts were dirty and worn, and the hammers were very used. This action received new hammers and shanks as well as replacement of worn felts on the keyframe and the original repetitions.
