In March we will have a discussion and demonstration on tuning techniques, including unisons, octaves, pitch raising and using ETDs. If you use an Electronic Tuning Device, please bring it to the meeting. We hope this will be an interesting and informative meeting. See you there!
It was good to see Ray Chandler again. Ray currently works with Yamaha, so the first half of the February meeting was about new things with Yamaha - how the plates are made, they use metric gauge wire, and using hide glue gives the hammers better sound. The second half of the meeting was all about Bosendorfer and how they are designed to be tuned to A443. Ray had a handout for optimizing performance which covered preparation specifications, voicing procedures, including voicing the shift pedal position, and general specifications. Ray also shared some of the special tools he uses. Thanks, Ray, for a very informative evening.
Thanks also to Greene Music for the pizza and drinks.
