鋼琴木材–外穀

五月 14, 2013

今日先介紹鋼琴外穀用料,下次再介紹音板。

鋼琴外穀有別於小提琴,最主要功能是傢俬--外觀最重要,音質不在考慮之列。鋼琴演奏都是打開琴蓋。你可以試試打開鋼琴上蓋彈奏比較音質。我錄音都是把外穀打開。

實木,一搬人對實木特別有情意結。如果用夾板感覺好以低級小小。所以市面上全部夾皮做的傢俬都叫做實木,但又不可以說是騙你。因為沒有可能有一整塊大木板,都是要多塊拼合。高級夾板是由幾層原木叠在一起。木紋成九十度角,強度比打橫拼合強。

蔗渣板--太低級!事實不一定。中密度板(MDF)也是蔗渣板。高級音嚮喇叭都是用MDF貼上原木木皮。MDF主要缺點是太重。所以鋼琴不會用MDF。

夾板

上圖是五層夾板。中間夾層最厚增加板塊厚度。最外層主要是美觀。高級傢具會用玫瑰木等高級木材。鋼琴外表用烤漆,也不會用玫瑰木。

要低成本比五層實木夾板低但又夠強度用那種木材?

蔗渣夾板

上圖是外表夾板內裡蔗渣板。某日本著名鋼琴品版是用這種木。

以上只是粗略介紹。不同廠家的加工工藝對成品板會有落差。蔗渣板比較軟不易用螺絲固定,信譽好的廠商會有比較好的處理方法。

舊越老越好?

音板經多年Burn in聲音更甜美?

借用Youtube舊琴翻新片. 片中見到除了外榖和鐵架所有主要部件都更換.

Testimonials
At Pearl River we often receive enthusiastic reviews from Pearl River owners.

“Dear Mr. & Mrs. Hannah:
We would like to thank you for working with us on getting the much needed new piano for our sanctuary. 

Like most churches of today, we operate on a limited budget and it seemed like the longer we saved the higher the prices went. We settled on a Pearl River 5’ 3” grand. We are very pleased with the piano and the way it sounds in our sanctuary.

 Over the years, as church pianist, I have played a multitude of different types and brands of piano—some very bad ones, some very good ones, and some very high priced ones. After playing the Pearl River, I was impressed with the quality, and after playing it in our sanctuary, I was even more impressed with the rich tone of the piano. The overall workmanship of this piano is excellent.

 You can be assured that in the future, I will be recommending the Pearl River piano to others. With the Pearl River piano, we were able to get a quality instrument and still remain within our budget needs. I am sure we will be using this piano for many years to come.
Respectfully submitted,
Belinda Smith
Pianist,
King Grove Church”
We Love Your Love Letters!
At Pearl River, we love to hear how much Pearl River owners love their pianos. That’s why we were particularly delighted to receive the following letter from Jami Hawkins in Columbia, South Carolina. A piano enthusiast and teacher, Jami purchased her Pearl River from Hannah Piano in Columbia and couldn’t be happier. Thank you Jami for your kind words.
“Dear Hannahs,
Today in the mail, I received a book of easy piano songs by he Beatles. It hit me that I have been playing and listening to piano music for over forty years! I began playing piano at age 8 and now teach piano as well as play for fun.
Over these 43 years, the technology of listening to piano music has changed beyond my wildest dreams: recordings on 78 and 45 rpms, as well as record albums gave way to 8-track tapes, cassette tapes, CDs and now all sorts of iPod things which I smile to think of as new fangled.
Through the years, however, the way I have dreamed of playing piano music has been to own my very own baby grand piano. A year ago, I walked into Hannah Piano in Columbia, SC, to begin exploring the possibility of this dream coming true. I had played a Pearl River baby grand at a friend’s house, and loved it, so I knew the piano sounded wonderful. My son, then 16, also plays, and I felt the piano would be an investment for him as well.
After visiting Hannah, I learned so much more about the Pearl River, the duplex scaling, the slow release keyboard cover, the beauty of the cabinet and, of course, the remarkable workmanship. Mrs. Hannah let me take home a full-sized template of the piano so that I could see how it would fit in my small home. Hannah arranged financing that met my budget. Soon, my Pearl River was delivered.


 I am not a wealthy person, nor a virtuoso pianist. My small house is in a middle class neighborhood. But I am a musician who loves to play, teach and listen to piano music. My Pearl River has been a dream come true.
This piano enhances my life. Even when I am not playing it, I get a thrill when I pass by it…I so enjoy the beauty of the instrument! Tonight, before I go to bed, I will play old Beatles songs on my Pearl River and have a wonderful evening.
I love my Pearl River, as the Beatles might say, Eight days a week.
Thank you, Pearl River, Thank you, Hannah Piano.”
 
And thank you Jami from everyone here at Pearl River Piano.
From Michael Corchran, owner of The Ruhnke Piano Company, we’ve received the following:
Michael: We love the piano. Thanks…you truly enriched our lives with class.
Take Care, Patty R., Gridley, CA.

Kay from Charleston, South Carolina:
“I LOVE my piano, and because I love it so much…some friends of mine in Charleston bought Pearl River pianos, too!”Janelle Robbins from Salt Lake City, Utah recently wrote:
“My name is Janelle Robbins and a little over a year ago, I won the new Pearl River piano. I thought that you might like an update of he past year…I always took it for granted that I would have a piano in my life. When I was married in 2004, I suddenly found myself without a piano, and I missed it terribly. I used to find excuses to visit my family just to play the piano. I had priced out the cost to purchase one, and found that our finances were tight and would not support that type of purchase for many, many years to come.”Fort Johnson Baptist Church finds their Pearl River “absolutely STUNNING!!!”
Fox Music House in Charleston, South Carolina was proud to receive high praise from Cathy White, Senior Pianist at the Fort Johnson Baptist Church. Here is an excerpt from her letter.
Dear Mr. Fox,
“…another great source of joy in our worship is our new 7-foot Pearl River piano. I was privileged to come to your store approximately two years ago as part of my search for a new piano for the church. I have played the piano since I was a little girl, and having the chance to select an instrument all by myself was just like being a kid at Christmas.
After trying out several pianos of differing sizes and builders, I sat down at the piano we now own. I was looking for just the right balance of tone quality from the lowest notes to the highest. This piano was absolutely STUNNING!!! I figured a piano of this quality and size would surely be more than our church would be willing to pay…was I ever wrong.”More comments from happy Pearl River customers

Barbara S.


Rescue of A Dead Key拯救死鍵

三月 18, 2013
Dissembled action, without centre pin.

Dissembled action, without centre pin.

如果個鍵不會回彈, 很大完因是鍵的木質和毛布發賬. 用鬆鍵鉗做小手術就可以.

If the key is sticky, can be cured simply with a key easing pliers.

假如個鍵回彈, 但在擊鍵沒有反應. 可能是Jack的中軸問題. 要更換中軸和擴大軸孔. 圖中可以見到撀弦機拆除中軸後的部件.

If the key rebound, but can’t fire, it obviously the centre pin of the jack in trouble. Replace the pin and easing the pin hole. The picture is a dissembled action parts without centre pin.
