REGULATING THE NEW YORK STEINWAY SOSTENUTO
By Gene Nelson

I got a call to tune a New York SSB for a Christmas time performance. The pianist had specifically requested that the middle pedal be in perfect working order (I never did find out what that meant). It is not very often that I get a request like this. (She must be playing something from one of those odd French composers I thought.)

Normally on any concert prep job I would check the function of the sostenuto but decided this time it would be a good idea to come prepared to do a full regulation if needed. The sostenuto on this piano only needed some minor fine regulation but I was ready for whatever condition it was in.
I will review the tests, regulation procedures and jigs that I use for this work and we will have a model L to observe.

Pizza will be served, so please email Dan for a headcount (or, if you forget to RSVP, you’re free to forlornly watch as those who RSVP’d munch on pizza).

Gene will be continuing the PACE Tuning Lessons from 6:00 PM to 6:45 PM. Be sure to RSVP to Gene and let him know if you’ll be attending this tuning session.

SEE YOU THERE!!!
