The hammers.

Mis à jour : 10 févr. 2019

My piano came with hammers that are worth keeping.

They are genuine Steinway hammers and there is sufficient thickness of felt left.









Over time, the pounding of hammers against the strings will dig grooves into the hammer felt. This causes the tone of the piano to loose clarity and become more harsh.





The hammers needed to be sanded until their original shape and aspect were found.
