Because the hammers have been 'running' or veering instead of rising perpendicular to the strings, they have a slope at the striking point. The felt is denser lower down, so in these hammers, the left side is denser than the right. The piano sounds beautiful in the middle in spite of this, but the problem was quite obvious in the top two sections. I couldn't send the piano back like that. It hasn't been noticeable with the old strings - pianos develop a 'status quo'.
