Pianos Inside Out by Mario Igrec

Is a comprehensive guide that takes an in-depth look at the history, design,
and maintenance of the piano, and provides practical guidance to anyone
who wants to learn how to tune, repair, regulate, voice, rebuild, or improve
the action performance of pianos. You will discover how to evaluate the
piano, assess what is needed, and develop a rebuilding plan. You will learn
how to restore a keyboard and action, how to 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 concepts, 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, indepth
view of that much-needed information, including the topics such as:

 Wave impedance and soundboard performance
 Coincident partial tuning
 Interval inharmonicity
 Touchweight analysis
 String leveling
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. Featuring “Myth/Truth” boxes, and enhanced by
multiple sidebars, tables, worksheets, and troubleshooters, the book is “very
articulate, yet has a casual readability and isn’t off-puttingly wordy or overly
complicated or presumptuously definitive” (Allen Wright, RPT, consulting
technician and restorer for Steinway & Sons London, John Broadwood &
Sons, and Period Piano Company
