It's been a busy few days. We've managed to work out the string sizes for each section. According to Pianos Inside Out, we start stringing each section left to right, starting with treble.
The first string went on 1st September.
Then we had to take a little break because a couple of the hitch pins were tilted upwards, which meant the strings slid off when tightened. Following Chillington's advice, we hit them with a hammer a couple of times - problems solved.
Today, the first section of six notes was completed and it's time to change up a gauge. We're inviting a few friends and local musicians to come and put a string on. More about that soon.
