Four members met at Jim Connolly's shop on July 13, 2015 at 7:00 pm. In our business meeting, we discussed general health issues and our annual picnic.

In our technical session, we considered various acoustic options for making a room less bright. Jim told us about two Bosendorfer Imperials that had consecutive serial numbers yet very different characters. Mike raised an issue he had concerning false beats on newly installed strings. We discussed lubricants used on tight center pins. We also addressed aural tuning versus machine tuning and blind tuners versus sighted tuners. We ended with a discussion about humidity control systems.

The August annual picnic will take place on Sunday, August 23 at Carpinteria State Beach. (See details above.) Please call Jim Connolly for more information on the picnic. His phone number is (805) 570-3341.
