An excellent tool for learning these skills as related to Grand Pianos, Square Grand Pianos and a few off-brand others. Parts and instructions to build your own action model of a single key of a Grand Piano. Useful as an aid to learning Piano Regulating and Repair, and also a nice display piece. This listing is for the full, unassembled kit with all pieces included - plans, action parts, hardware and mounting boards. Assembly is a simple process and requires only a few basic tools - a couple screwdrivers and perhaps a pair of pliers.Parts are pre-cut and ready to assemble. Instructions are clear and well written.
The entire process can be done in 2-4 hours. As this model is patterned after an actual grand piano, and made using actual piano action parts, it is an authentic, accurate representation of a grand piano and can be used to practice regulating of the piano action. As a learning tool, the assembly into a working model will impart a thorough understanding of the action itself and the processes and techniques necessary to service any piano. These skills are invaluable to any piano technician as well as a necessary requirement for membership in the Piano Technicians Guild. This kit, when completed, also makes a great display piece for Piano Technicians, Piano Shops or Stores, Piano Teachers, or anyone else interested in music and pianos, or curious about how these things work.
Please see my other auctions for a listing for the Upright Piano version of this kit. Together, the 2 model kits will help you gain a thorough knowledge and practical skills to regulate and repair virtually any piano.
