Mounting the Dampers, Installing the Lid, and Resting
A mirror is used to check the position of the damper head
The gold-colored hinge is mounted on the lid in a fully automatic process
After the lid is installed, the automatic key pressing machine is used once again to give the keyboard and action a thorough run-in, and to ensure that the hammers are adjusted to strike the strings cleanly and evenly. The machine actually plays each key 300 times.
After being played by the automatic key pressing machine, the instrument is seasoned for 7 to 10 days. Before final adjustments are made, the piano is placed in a flow rack system and allowed to sit undisturbed in an environment where the temperature and humidity level are set based on the climate of the customer's location.
