In this video you'll see Jamie doing one of my favorite jobs - working on the keys. In three minutes, he shows all the steps to getting the keys cleaned up and ready to go into the piano.
As a continuation from Part I, , Jamie Musselwhite shows the reconditioning work on the action of the piano - the hammers, the wippens, the dampers and the frame that holds it all together. While the video is a long 10 minutes, I can tell you it took him a lot longer than 10 minutes to do all the work required to get this action up to snuff!
If you intend to ever buy a used piano that has been reconditioned, save yourself some frustration, anger and money - watch these videos by Jamie Musselwhite , a piano technician in Toronto. The videos are short, sweet, to-the-point as he shows he corrects some problems on this "reconditioned" piano, and then beautifully finishes the job.
P.S. If you happen to be selling an old piano, check out what it's going to take to get it ready for someone to play --
If you find yourself still lost, give me a call - I can help you go through that piano to help you determine if it is a treasure or not!
