Inhaltsangabe: Pianos Inside Out takes an in-depth look at the history, design, and maintenance of the piano, and provides practical, step-by-step guidance to anyone who wants to learn how to tune, repair, regulate, voice, rebuild, or improve the action performance of pianos. The reader will discover how to evaluate the piano, assess what is needed, and develop a rebuilding plan. He or she will learn how to restore a keyboard and action, select and install new hammers, rebuild dampers, restring the piano, replace its pinblock, repair the soundboard, regild the plate, and refinish the case.
Covering a wide range of topics, from introductory to advanced, Pianos Inside Out puts between two covers all the advancements and understanding gained by the piano industry over the last 30 years. It provides a coherent, in-depth view of that much-needed information, including such topics as touch analysis and improvement, string leveling, soundboard performance, coincident-partial tuning, interval inharmonicity, and modern lubricants.
Pianos Inside Out is written for hobbyists, students, and piano technicians, but it will also help pianists and owners of pianos to better understand their instruments and to communicate more effectively with their technicians. The book is full of clear, concise, step-by-step instructions, and more than 700 illustrations and diagrams.
"The most ambitious book on piano technology ever written."
-PIANO TECHNICIANS JOURNAL
"Fantastic job. Very well thought out."
-FRANZ MOHR, former Chief Concert Technician, Steinway & Sons
"A very useful introduction to the profession."
-LAURENCE LIBIN, Editor-in-Chief, Grove Dictionary of Musical Instruments
"Very comprehensive and full of valuable information."
“The most ambitious book on piano technology ever written, and very likely the most complete and successful. . . . It covers a very broad spectrum of piano technology topics in much greater depth than one would expect for a book covering such a wide range of topics.
“[The] chapter on touch, geometry, and playability is about as detailed and thorough as anything I've seen short of Walter Pfeiffer's two books on action design.
“Igrec's 164-page chapter on rebuilding could quality as a book all by itself. I believe this is the most comprehensive exposition on piano rebuilding I've ever seen anywhere.
“Buy this book. Read this book. You will be glad you did.”
-- Piano Technicians Journal
“The most comprehensive book on piano technology that has been written in recent times. . . . It is a monumental work and if one wants to have the latest information on the subject of piano tuning and technology this is the book to own and use as a reference.
“The tuning chapter is to be commended for including a good description of inharmonicity. Chapter 9 titled Touch, Geometry, Playability, is a very advanced and detailed trip through hammer weight, friction, action geometry and how this all affects the way the piano feels to the pianist.
“Pianos Inside Out is an excellent book; highly readable and recommended for piano owners, piano technicians and those learning about piano technology.”
-- Europiano Magazine
“Well thought out and wonderfully detailed . . . I recommend it highly to anyone who wants to further their knowledge and expertise in the piano tuning, repair, and restoration field. It should be required reading for anyone aspiring to become an RPT member of the Piano Technicians Guild.”
-- Arthur Reblitz, author of Piano Servicing, Tuning, and Rebuilding: For the Professional, the Student, and the Hobbyist
