What are the primary functions of the various parts when boiled down to their most essential role.
2. Why and How
Why are shapes and sizes chosen for various parts. How are decisions made that go into the final product? Why might a manufacturer make a choice that doesn't make sense to a technician? Equipped with first-hand experience of the design optimization, and budgeting process, Del can answer some of your deepest questions about the pianos you encounter every day, why and how they got to be the way they are.
As an astute student of piano design history, having searched far and wide for documentation on the historical trends in and ideas about piano design, Del will share how we got where we are and where he thinks we are going.
