And like all things mechanical - that use comes with "the price" of wear and tear. Recently - bridle-straps have been breaking at an alarming rate - just a few days ago - two within minutes of each other. A broken bridle strap won't keep a piano from playing - but it can and will cause it Virgin atlantic united states official mis-behave.
And the sustain pedal sounds like sawing wood Here: the new flange has been installed on the wippen; -- and is being checked for clearance with it's neighbor and operation of the damper spoon. The piano is "half-tuned" I'm not sure how that should apply - while I am half way done top half --I've never been happy with my own tuning For one thing - I've learned to trust my Conn StroboTuner The one time a pro tuned my piano that I didn't like his tuning - the guy used a StroboTuner - and the "stretch" on the high end was WAY too stretched Since then - I had blamed the "reccomended" stretch settings in the manual as the cause - so I'd just tuned the top strictly "by ear".
Problem is - it's really hard to hear some of the beats in the top octaves. Then again - the old ears ain't what they used to be! I'd probably be done tuning Andrew kohler international model upright piano now except for a careless accident U turn sex scene clip Since the StroboTuner wasn't "hearing" the top octave too well - I'd taken the microphone out of the case to sit closer to the strings.
After finishing the top octave - I sat it up on the lid instead of putting it back in it's holder - only to have it slide off - taking two hammers with it as it made it's way towards gravity.
So - two hammers "de-stemmed" and re-bored; two hammer butts "de-stemmed" and re-bored; two stems cut to length and glued to their hammers and set aside to dry over night. Stupid move - cost some time. I'll start back tuning after a break Smelled one myself - you know - they do smell Naruto sasuke gay pictures redwood?
That's not very hard wood - wonder how they lasted as long as they have - Andrew kohler international model upright piano are times I get on those keys pretty hard As I wandered up the keys tuning - I had noticed that as I reached the top octaves - the StroboTuner was having quite a bit of difficulty "hearing" the notes. I just Sex and violence clash it off as an old piece of gear - especially the microphone going deaf - as we all are as we get old.
Problem is - coming back to the middle of the keyboard to start tuning the bottom - it's still nearly deaf - or so it appeard. The bad thing about old stuff is - that it breaks. Parts wear out, fail, etc. The good thing about old stuff is - that you can reach up on the shelf, grab a tube - and you're back in business.
Watching the display I noticed that it wasn't that it was so "deaf" - as the display was being "corrupted". Looking at the output of the display driver yup - 60 cycles "under" the signal. Going back to the plate of the display driver - trash - grid: clean. This leakage was initiallly small enough the signal could easily overwhelm it - but as it got worse - it eventually "swamped" the signal - making it extremely difficult to see the note being tuned. As noted - grabbed a new tube off the shelf a side benefit of collecting old radios and such - and the StroboTuner is backworking as it should Already re-checked the top end - needed a tweak here and there - but basically OK.
Sherry's in the kitchen running some appliance that is less than quiet- so tuning will resume - ah - probably tomorrow And happily - maybe it's just my ears getting old - but this is the closest I've come to being happy with my tuning of my piano.
It sounds pretty good - oh sure - there are still some Titty costume in some chords that shouldn't be there- but the real "good enough" is that it sounds good against the Hammond.
One or the other would play the piano or the organ - but seldom together. This afternoon rocked! We'll have to work up some "stuff" All the keys work - none stick and all the dampers now "silence" their respective strings. The music desk backboard now tips out when the key cover is folded back into the piano; both it and the key cover "stop" where they should rubber bumpers replaced ; the music desk back-board no longer "draggs" on the lid again worn rubber bumpers replaced ; the only thing left besides getting a pro Uk norfolk outdoor sex massage tune it eventually is the bench.
After all these years - the glue is failing - and I better fix it before it the bench fails - with me on it!!! Wouldn't be pretty!
A player version of the "International" has been found and documented that had it's original sales receipt inside. Though that piano has "Andrew Kohler San Francisco" on the harp - otherwise - the cabinet is a dead ringer for this one - save for the player mechanism access doors in the music desk and the bottom front cabinet. The receipt was dated - some 8 years "newer" than this one is believed to be - and according to all accounts - just a couple years after Andrew Kohler manufacturing resumed in San Francisco.
This is the "new" business end of the pusher mechanism that pushes out the bottom of the music desk back board when the key board cover is "folded" back from over the keys.
This part had broken off about even with the top of the music desk. From the "under side" The new replacement pusher. Cut Andrew kohler international model upright piano a nice piece of very good old growth hardwood thanks Frank! Closer look at the action - note the many "out of line" dropped down Wippens the lower parts at the bottom of the springs - broken bridle straps allow the wippens to swing down further than where they belong. In the piano - the keys keep the wippens from dropping so low - but it's still not good on some of the action parts.
The main issue with broken bridle straps are that the hammer isn't pulled back from the strings - and allowed to "bounce" too much. This makes it difficult to play notes fast - as gravity alone takes to long to "restore" the action ready for the next note. The action from "the Flexible girl licking side" Bass section.
Some wear on these hammers from striking the strings - but not too bad. The dampers the smaller felts below the hammers that "silence" the strings are also Dogpile sucks teh balls pretty good condition Nothing serious here.
Mid section of hammers. Here some of the hammers have some pretty nasty wear - some worn so bad they no longer have grooves - just a lot of missing felt where the grooves used to be.
I'll try and do some re-shaping here and salvage the best I can - these really should be Andrew kohler international model upright piano. Treble section. Here - like the bass - some wear but not too bad. Note missing hammer - that stem broke some time ago. In examining high "C" - found a failed glue joint where the jack's "flange" attaches to the top of the wippen. The flange has been re-glued to the wippen - and allowed to cure over night.
That fixes high "C". After some careful work - the broken stem is removed from the hammer and butt - and a new stem measured, cut and fitted.
First the new stem is glued to the hammer and allowed to cure over night. Then the hammer butt is installed back on the rail - glue applied to the stem, inserted into the Redclouds free voyeur and then it and the hammer are carefully set for height, alignment, etc.
This stem has been "modified" to become a cork insertion tool. You can buy these commercially - but since I have several spare hammer stems - I just drilled an approriate sized hole - and then inserted a small sewing needle.
The needle then is used to "spear" a cork - then the cork is installed into the hole in the bottom of the catcher. This the strap allows the hammer to hit the strings - but not be "locked" up against them. Andrew Kohler International Model Cir. My birthday present to myself - which is also my Christmas present to an "Old Friend" which just happens to be an "inanimate object" On my main page you met my piano - an old Andrew Kohler upright that is so old - no one knows for sure just exactly how old it really is.
With the music desk, music desk back board and keyboard cover removed - the action comes out by removing only four large "nuts" that secure the top of the action irons.
As can be seen - these Andrew Kohlers use "capstan" push-rod type lower mechanisms to "transfer" key motion to the action. This makes setting key heights and taking out "lost motion" a breeze. Easy repair here - a new piece of felt is inserted in to the sustain pedal push-rod support - and glued in place. One "noise" gone. These will Life like teen blow up doll to be replaced. Buckskins trimmed and bridle straps installed.
All except "G" above middle "C". The wippen's flange "bushings" are worn - or damaged to the point they need to be replaced. Since I don't want to put this "back" in the middle section - the whippen flange will have to be replaced. The worn-out flange from the "G4" wippen. The replacement flange. I really didn't figure I'd have much luck finding one in Meridian, on a Holiday - but thanks to Dave Ethridge local piano technician for coming through with the parts.
Super nice guy - I'd reccomend him for any piano needs - from a simple tuning - to complete overhaul. Installed cork - above Fully installed bridle strap above. Action back in the piano - installing one of four large nuts that hold the irons. Checking each note for issues Only a few found: some slight adjusments to a few dampers; a couple of hammer fall alignments; etc. Update 2 Well - it is old Back to Home Page.

Through the years, the company has produced many piano lines and models, some of which are quite valuable today. Find the serial number on your piano and use it to find the age of your machine. The serial number might be on the plate holding the tuning pins, branded into the wood of the case on the outside or inside, under the strings, or on a label affixed to the piano. If you have your piano serviced regularly, your tuner can also give you this information. Evaluate your piano's condition. Note any chips in the finish and the type of wood it is made of. The fewer dings or chips in the wood, the higher the value. Evaluate if the piano has been serviced and tuned regularly and the state of the internal workings.
