A way to increase efficiency, consistency and dynamic control
Much of the ‘feel’ of the piano is linked to the key stick itself. Mostly wood, with lead weights to counter an intricate action sitting opposite the finger that strikes it, improvements can be made both to the felt that buffers each key to the key frame and the weight of the system itself. Key Rebushing is the removal and replacement of the felt that lines each mortise optimized for key travel. Key Reweighing is the proportional re-adjustment of the weight in the keys and the weight of the hammer. It often includes the removal and/or re-distribution of key leads.
