ATTENTION PIANO TECHNICIANS AND REBUILDERS
Local Church looking to sell
7', 4" SAMICK GRAND to $BEST OFFER$ - Needs TONS of work.
This piano was gifted to the church 20ish years ago, by original owner.
It needs significant rebuilding to be considered a stable instrument.
We have had some work done on this piano within the last year and half by a techinician/rebuilder of the Registered Piano Technicians Guild. Here follows the work done on this instrument in January 2014:
Hammer Filing/ Voicing; Action Regulation; Damper Regulation; Rebush and Lubricate Keyboard; Clean keypins and fit to keyframe. Complete Pedal Trapwork Rebuild & Regulation.
HOWEVER, post this work, it was discovered that there were more significant problems with the piano, particularily with the pinblock. This pinblock is poorly fit to the plate flange, causing instability of tuning and needs to be completely rebuilt. Based on what has been discovered, the following work would need to be done by the buyer, as this is the current state of the instrument's rebuilding needs:
Repair & Renew Soundboard
Repair & Renew Bridges
Duplicate & Replace NEW fully fit pinblock
Restring, replace agraffes, reshape Capo D'astro Bar
Renovate & Regulate Existing Dampers
