How a Piano is Made
Mounting the Dampers, Installing the Lid, and Resting
These Assembly Operations Mark the End of the First Stage
Mounting the dampers, which play a role in stopping the sound, and installing the lid mark the completion of the assembly process. After this, the focus will be on perfecting the quality and integrity of the instrument.
Seasoned for 7 to 10 Days
After the lid is installed, the automatic key pressing machine is used once again to give the keyboard and action a thorough run-in, and to ensure that the hammers are adjusted to strike the strings cleanly and evenly. The machine actually plays each key 300 times.
After being played by the automatic key pressing machine, the instrument is seasoned for 7 to 10 days. Before final adjustments are made, the piano is placed in a flow rack system and allowed to sit undisturbed in an environment where the temperature and humidity level are set based on the climate of the customer's location.
