Hi

We’re excited to announce the arrival of The Bunker’s brand new (very old) fully rebuilt 1894 Steinway C. To celebrate we’re holding an open house as an opportunity to play the piano and meet the talented team that worked on the rebuild. Piano rebuilder Jim Ialeggio will be in attendance to answer questions and share his immense knowledge. Jim’s a master craftsman and his work on this instrument is outstanding. Our house piano technician James Carney collaborated with Jim on the rebuild and has been refining the piano since it arrived at the studio. It will be a rare opportunity to have both Jim and James around and between them they know every inch of the piano.

Please feel free to share the invitation to anyone that may be interested in checking out the piano and the studio. We’ll be providing wine and some light snacks and are looking forward to hanging!

What
Bunker open house and meet and great.

When
Sunday June 26th 2016 5:30-9pm

Hope to see you there!

A series of pictures documenting the process of rebuilding our 1889 Steinway C by master craftsman Jim Ialeggio.

Feb 2016. Here's the latest from Jim.

Soundboard, panel ribbing, bridges complete and the entire fabricated soundboard structure is glued into the case. Will be applying finish to the board and bridges this week, and get the finished plate installed in the piano, ready for stringing. Its coming along really nicely...I'm really pleased how I was able to use my new protocol which allows me to create feedback loops and tailor the soundboard structure, before the entire panel is installed in the rim...quite jazzed about this protocol and how much control it gives me regarding the structure of the board...fun stuff!

Here's what Jim has to say about this round of photos.

"Most of the pics are of the keyboard, which needed a lot of restoration. More importantly, the geometry of the key lever was set up for 19th century really light hammers and 19th century reduced key dips. Since you have pianists coming in who don't have a lot of time to get used to this piano, I thought it was important to give them an action leverage that is more familiar to modern pianists. So the key proportion job removes the old balance rail, epoxies the old balance point mortise, and places the new balance rail at an optimized position. This is important, because the key geometry, being the longest lever in the action, has a huge effect on what the piano feels like to play. The original key proportions were different at the two ends of the keyboard (6.3-6.7 ratio), so I gave the whole thing a single key leverage, and lowered the leverage a bit."

For those of you interested in the progress of the Steinway C rebuild here's the next series of photos from piano wizard Jim IaIeggio. According to Jim the build quality of this 1889 instrument is amazing. The hardware has gone out for nickel plating already. Here he's adding structural improvements, stabilizing the legs and prepping the casework for a new finish.
