Reshaped hammers and new dampers - Upright Piano Action

Hammers and damper felts are two of the wear-out items in all pianos. Dampers become hardened and misshapen to the point where they don't stop (damp) the sound when they should. Hammers become worn and hard and give the piano a harsh and unpleasing tone. Both dampers and hammers can be replaced with new parts, or the life of hammers can often be extended by re-shaping them and voicing. This is the action of an old upright piano with new dampers and reshaped hammers. Dave donated this piano to a local church after making it playable and musical again.
